Question about 1994 Lexus GS 300
My friend took her car (running) to a mechanic, with an intermittent problem with running rough. They replaced the crankshaft position sensor, and then the car would not run. they towed it to her house. She was angry and voiced her opinion, the mechanic took it back to the shop, to get it running again, and called her back saying some wiring was like a rats nest. i dont know what i should look for first. tomorrow i am going to look at it. I am a diesel mechanic, so any advise would be appreciated.
Did that shop show her the OBDII scan print out to justify any recommended repairs? Now you don't know what you've got or what the original problem was. How did the wiring get tangled up? Always let the OBDII scan print out of the stored fault history, be your guide to any repairs. You have to watch these shops, they will build you a new car at twice the cost.

go with standard pads.they wear a little faster than ceramics.but they dont wear down brake rotors.ceramics pads are hard and they cause brakes to squeak.also your car is under warranty with lexus dealership.i would use what they said. because you have future brake problem. they will void out warranty for not using their brakes.

hello freddy - the good news is that your lexus has a self diagnosis system built into it. this is what you need to do.
drive to an auto zone or similar autoparts store and have them put your lexus on their computer to scan for trouble codes. they offer this as a free service. with a little luck this scan will isolate the problem and the fix will be quick and easy.
if this doesnt fix it for you get back and let me know what codes popped up.
here is a link to the lexus trouble codes so you will have added insight. good luck.
