I think I'd check out the air flow sensor. Its situated between the air filter housing and the throttle body. Another place of interest may be the fuel filter or the submersible pump. You'll need to get a fuel pump pressure test done. That should only be carried out with the correct instruments and proceedures. Try the first suggestion first though

What does code system to lean bank 1 mean on my 2000 lexus rx300


It could be caused by many things, but generally it means that your engine is running too lean - usually indicating a vacuum leak. It could also be that the O2 sensor is bad and giving a false reading.

Engine stalls essesive gas consumption


When does it stall? Give me some more details. But in the mean time Im gonna guess vacuum leak. Turn the car on and spray carb cleaner at the vacuum hoses. If you hear the engine wind up you know there is a vacuum leak in that spot. For your engine to stall and take a lot of gas its gotta be a big vacuum leak. But it might not even be a vacuum leak but its something to check into. It would be a cheap and easy fix if it is just a leak! Give me some more details if its not a vacuum leak. Good luck!

Trying to find out what is causing a 2000 RX300 to stall out and or not start unless your constantly giving it gas. It just won't idle at times and does not show any fault codes.

Lexus rx300 2002 starts and immediately stalls.


I have a 2001 Lexus RX300 with 120,000 miles on it and I know exactly what is wrong with this car. You either need a new a new Idle Air Control Valve (IACV) or you must clean the one you have with some throttle body cleaner. I cleaned mine a couple of years ago. They are usually good for about 80,000 miles and then they get dirty due to emission controls (smog being recirculated and reburned). The IACV is located near the trottle body on the underside. Check lexusownersclub.com and you will see specific instructions on how to clean this throttle body. It costs you a can of throttle body cleaner and some of your time and this condition will not occur again - I did it!

HOW MANY LITERS OIL NEEDS LEXUS RX300 2001?


You need 5 quarts in the Lexus RX300. Beware, the RX300 has a history of engine sludge problems (just search the internet for Toyota engine sludge). I would recommend Mobil 1 (this is FULL synthetic) and for viscosity I would recommend 5w-30 in the winter and 10w-30 in the summer. Your manual will verify the viscosity that I have mentioned. You must use good engine oil with this vehicle or else you will have an engine sludge problem and this could cost you a new engine. The RX300 is a wonderful vehicle and very reliable, but it requires some care that you must give it or else it will cost you a lot of money and maybe leave you stranded. For instance, change the oil regularly (no more than 4000 mile intervals) and also change the transmission fluid (no more than 60000 mile intervals). Search online for transmission failures in the RX300 - you'll find that the people who did not get a transmission flush were very sorry!!

RX300 Engine Stalls when I take foot off the gas pedal.


The Idle Air Control (IAC) valve is clogged. This part feeds air to the engine at start-up and idle when the throttle bodies are closed. I removed the throttle body assembly from my 2001 RX300 and separated it from the IAC. After a good cleaning with throttle body cleaner the IAC was good as new. I later decided to replace it during routine maintenance. You can pick up a brand new IAC on eBay (genuine Lexus/Toyota part). The dealer will want upwards of $400.00 for a 45 minute job (all you need are basis hand tools).
