Question about Lexus RX 300
My Lexus RX 300 (1999 - AWD) I at about 155,000 miles. Just last year, at about 148,000 I had to have the transmission rebuilt (ouch)! Now, I've been having problems with the car shaking when I accelerate. 2) Sometimes the care will jump while I am stopped at a light and then it begins to shake. 3) Sometimes while I am driving on the highway the car shakes. 4) The engine light is on and remains on constantly now. 5) The main seal gasket is leaking and was leaking when the transmission "guy" pulled it out. But he did not have the sense to change the gasket or tell me it needed replacing at that time! So, I have a constant oil leak. 6) A mechanic recommend I add 20-50W oil, which is not the Lexus recommended oil for this vehichle. This shaking problem occured within a couple months of me adding this oil, but it may / may not be related. Please help me determine if this car is worthy of any more repairs. Is my car possessed by demons, stressed, ready to be retired, or salvable? I don't want to invest more than the car is worth (I am already in for a few thousand $$ because of the transmission repairs I've made). Again, what is the cause of the problems and are they worth fixing?
This could mean a lot of thing, 1.) possibly you wheel bearings could be going out. 2.) your break rotors and or brake pads could be shot. 3.) the transmission is shot but if you just had it rebuilt i can't see that being the case.
