Try a cheap fix... buy a couple bottles of gas line antifreeze and put them in the tank either right away or at your next fill up of gas. it sounds like water in your gas.

I have a lexus es 300 with same problem i changed timing belt , tensioner new sparolugs new water pump, and wen i first started runs real smood but once is hot i drive for a 10 minutes fail again i put my...


Lexus Is very particular on thier settings for the timing.It has to be on the mark, with no slack. They will run, But if the belt is not super tight it will throw timing faults. When I do timing jobs I use a pry bar and put as much pressure that I can on the belt tensioner.before I tighten it down. This assures me that the is no slack and actually stretches the belt. very little stretch, but it does. Since I started doing this I haven't had any problems with any timing jobs that I do.
Good luck

How much should it cost to replace the timing belt and water pump on a lexus es 2001


My car is a 2001 Lexus ES300 and has 106K miles. I brought it to my mechanic to replace Thermostat, Thermostat Gasket, Timing Belt, Water Pump, Camseals Kit, Crankseal, Air Filter, Fuel Filter, Timing Component and Spark Plugs for a total of $981.24 ($510 of it is labor). He charges at least 1/2 of a dealer so expect to pay more elsewhere. The care drives like a brand new car and I will keep driving it for another 10 years!!!

When should the timing belt be replaced? Should the water pump be replaced at the same time?


60,000 miles is recommended by Toyota/Lexus. Replacing the water pump is recommended because its driven by the timing belt. If not replaced and it fails in the future, you would have to re-do everything again!!

1999 lexus es300 how to find cylinder no.3 and 4 ?


the front bank is bank 2, the rear one is bank one. The cylinders go from the timing belt side to the right. So 3 is the middle on the back bank, and four is the middle cylinder on the front bank. They are both in the middle so just replace them.
