Question about 1992 Lexus Sc 300

1 Answer

Rough Riding 1994 Lexus SC400

I am considering buying this car. When I test drove it, I noticed that the hood and front end were real shakey and noisy. Also, after driving it for a mile or so...their was a very noticeable hesitation or a feeling of bogging down. After that the check engine light lit up. I was told that it was not reset after Lexus replaced 2 sensors. What do you think could be wrong with it?? I am hopeing that whatever is wrong with the car won't cost a fortune to fix. Thanks for your help.

Sounds like it hasn't been babied! I would say no way, if the deal sounds good it may just be someone dumping the trouble on you. I don't like buying a troubled car unless it only has a couple minor problems I'm sure I can fix myself. You got to also figure in what they won't tell you!

I recently washed the engine compartment on my 1994 sc400 Lexus, now it runs rough and has loss of power. did something get wet or did a connector come loose?

check inside all of the sparkplug cavities,there will probably be water inside,just dry out the lead tube ends and blow out with air down where sparkplugs are.if no air you can dry with thin screwdriver and rag,or pull out the plugs and let water fall into cylinders,wont be enough to damage,just burn out on restart. dont be tempted to keep driving it like it is as the over fuelling cylinders with poor spark can cause damage to catalyic converter,(will smell really hot from under vehicle)

The cable broke which opens the hood in my 1994 Lexus LS400. What is the best way (least expensive) to replace this cable? Thanks

if it broke with hood open its not going to be hard to replace it.first you go to auto parts place or dealership buy the cable feed it through the floor board to the hood where cable goes. if hood cable broke with hood down its going to be hard to see or get to the hood open mechanism.through the radiator open under neath the front bumper.

remove the 2 10mm bolts on top that you can see, then remove front part of inner fender liner you will find 2 10mm nuts. you will need a long extension. Recomend using duct tape around feneder area to avoid scratching.
