  2. ok let me know lay this out the best i can.i go to new york every weekend friday through tuesday.my car sits in a bus station park and ride for those days.when i come back tuesday evening.my car hesitates to start,when it does.i put the car in drive and start to move in which she hesitates and does not accelerate normally when i hit the gas.its running but doesnt accelerate with any powe.rthis last time i was blowing smoke out of the exhaust.after about 3-5 minutes round the parking lot it starts to drive again back to normal.if i drive the car everyday this doesnt happen its only when i leave the car for a few days sitting.anyone have any suggestions or experience with this problem?any and all help is much appreciated thank you
  3. hi i have a question/problem for the experts.i was taking my tire off of my 93 es300 to change and i noticed the bottom of my strut tower is really close to the top of my tire.ive had metal adjustable spacers inside the coil since i bought it from the owner he had them on there i have no idea why.they were close to the bottom of the coil so i spun them higher up to like the 3rd or 4th ring of the spring.hoping maybe it will put the pressureon the top and then the bottom will compress more so it wont be so close to the tire.has anyone had this happen with the strut tower being so close to the tire??does anyone have any advice??im afraid of this problem thanx

  8. exactly as title says 92-96 lexus es300 black leather heated seat.in great shape no rips tears.shows some minor wear but looks good.im asking $275 for it message me with any questions.
  9. ill be honest im not sure im not that mechanically inclined.i mean im not completely dumb when it comes to cars.it only happens when im at a complete stop and then hit the gas to drive.
  10. haha no i dont believe something in the trunk is the cause.when i get to a complete stop for a red light or stop sign.then i accelerate from the stop i feel a thump coming from the front end.almost feels like im running over a bump everytime i accelerate from a stop this occurs over and over again but only when accelerating from a stop.
  11. hi guys just as the title says.a day or two ago i noticed after accelerating from a stoplight i feel a slight thump from my car.almost like im driving over a bump.ive never heard this before im pretty concerned has anyone ever had this problem or ave any opinions on what this could be.please any help or input would be great thank you
  12. hi guys just a simple question.ive had my es for almost 2 years now.and not positive the last time the previous owner changed the spark plugs or wires.id like to do this to my car.i know you guys are very informative with specific plugs you like.my car has around 107k on her and i do drive her a good bit.so any recommendation on plugs and wires id greatly appreciate
