  1. "Lexus SC 300 for sell... Needs engine rebuilt"

  2. its blown head gasket time... anyone got any info for me ???

  3. if you read this post and actually had a solution for my problem, never-mind and thank you anyway... i just went ahead and grinded off that tab near the center of the tensioner pulley arm and everything worked out perfect... it gave me more than enough slack to install the serpentine belt and wrap it around all of the pullys... needless to say, the dremel tool and dremel cutting disc didn't waste any time removing the tab... the new serpentine belt gave my altenator a little more boost of energy. this i noticed when i turned on the headlights and turn signals. (what next, lol ???)
  4. upon trying to install a serpentine belt for a 92 Lexus SC300, i noticed there is a little metal tab on the axis point of the tensioner arm that will only let me flex the tensioner arm to a short degree. i flexed the tensioner arm with ease, but the tensioner arm won't go but so far. i have the correct size tensioner pully and the correct size serpentine belt, but i need about 5 cetimeters of slack to get the serpentine belt wrapped around all the pulleys... has anyone else had this problem??? i'm thinking about using my dremel tool to grind away the tab in hope of getting more flex out of the tensioner pully arm. i also tried to re-adjust the steering pump bracket, but when i loosened the bolts around the steering pump bracket, the steering pump didn't budge the slightest little bit... if anyone knows of a better way to go about dealing with this issue please give me some advice... i think it's shame the way the mechanical features of this car was designed...
  5. i've recently encountered a problem with my serpentine belt, tension pulley and pulley arm. i was pulling out of my driveway and i felt a hard thump and right after, my power steering gave out. i lifted the hood to find the serpentine belt was snapped and laying over the engine. my car came with an extra belt and thought it wouldn't take long to wrap it on. after my attemp to apply the belt, i quickly noticed the amount of slack in the belt. then i realized the tension pulley wasn't rotating as it should. so i removed the 9/16 bolt from the center of the tension pulley wheel and as soon as i did, the ball bearings made a run for it. i called Auto Zone for another tension pulley wheel. after acquiring the new wheel and re-installing it, i ran into another problem... i couldn't move the tension pulley arm. i tried using the technique that worked on a '95 Cavalier i used to own by putting a wrench on the bolt holding the tension pulley wheel in place by turning to tighten the bolt in which the tension pulley arm would flex down enough to where the serpentine belt could be installed. needless to say, it didn't work for the "92 Lexus SC 300. is there anyone who knows of the method that is required to relieve the tension from the tension pulley arm so that i may apply the serpentine belt to its rightful place under the hood the car ????? :cries:

    my processes and progresses
  8. i purchased mine used, and the owners manual was nowhere to be found... i think i might have to go through the dealership on this one...
  9. does anyone know where i can get or view a fuse box diagram for a 92 SC300? i have a terrible feeling that i have the incorrect amp fuses in the wrong slots. i have a few things on my car that aren't reacting correctly. and three of the slots that require fuses didnt have any in them.
  10. 20 inch wheels with 50 series tires associated with coil-overs offers a wonderful drop with an enhanced stability rate... its the best set up i've seen around here... try to use coil-overs, they take that wobbling sensation out or your driving experience and they also will allow you to run a body kit with a 2 inch drop... ( body kits may drag in some areas )
  11. i'm thinking the socket harness is permanently affixed to the back of the headlight assembly. oh well, sucks for me...
  12. i'm having a problem getting the socket out. i don't know if it turns or twists out of the headlight assembly. i can't turn it, and i refuse to pry at it... i need to fix it soon before i get a ticket for it. why does the smallest bulb always have to be the problem ? :(
  13. go to my profile and read my posts on the SCOSCHE wiring harness for a 1991 Toyota Supra that can be found at walmart. it will allow you to keep you factory speakers (including that sub &amp) and install the deck of your choice and put what ever you can fit in the trunk. just plug the scosche harness to the factory plugs and install your custom equipment like in any other vehicle. i'll have some pix of my audio set up in my gallery before the week is up.
