Check your distributor. Sometimes the bearings that hold the shaft in place wear out and causes movement with the rotor so it doesn't turn right. It will cause the rotor to not hit the points just right under the cap.

Rpms drop when you shift from parck


There will ne a slight drop of engine RPM when you select a gear as the torque convertor is trying to drive the car and so the engine is loaded up. The RPM drop can be up to 200 rpms on the older cars and less on the EFI units as the CPU makes the RPM adjustment to keep the idle steady.

Check fuel pressure should be 55 to 65PSI. Check ball valves on the spider fuel injector. Disconnect one by one plastic tubes from engine block, and use Non Corrosive Brake Fluid (green can) to make sure that the holes are not clogged. Good luck.

RPM near 3000 on my 1999 Lexus RX300


What is your speed at 3k rpm? What rpm would you estimate was previously 'normal' for highway cruising? If your Lexus is auto trans, it could be two things, it's either not shifting into the highest gear, or it's possibly slipping in gear (although I would think that would cause the rpms to fluctuate, not stay at a steady 3k). If it's a stick shift, again, it could be clutch slippage, but my choice from your description would be not shifting into the highest gear. Bring it up to highway speed slowly, counting how many shifts it makes, I.m guessing it's a 5 speed auto, but I'm not sure about that.
