Question about 2000 Lexus LX470
Truck has 130000 miles on it and is in very good condition. Had all fluids changed at 120000 mile service same time they changed timing belt. Front end is in low position, rear end is in middle or high position, ride is very stiff. It is winter here in chicagoland and something may have locked up and caused this problem. Car is in heated garage now but still not working. Where do I start to troubleshoot this problem.
That is not a common problem. I work at a lexus dealership and can attest to that. If you complain loud enough the dealer should "goodwill" warranty that for you especially since you've been a good customer. lexus sells a great car and will allow the dealer to warranty it for you out of warranty at their discretion. your powertrain warranty should be 7yr /70,000

If it is running perfectly I wouldn't think that you would need to replace the timing belt. You shouldn't need to replace that until 100,000-120,000 miles. I would definitely hold off until now unless you have start having some timing problems. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

exposure to heat, weather,salt in winter and water make them more susceptible to failure I would change them knowing that my others failed
