Question about 2000 Lexus LX470

Open Question

1999 LX470 Automatic Height Control stopped working.

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

SOURCE: ? to Replace Timing belt on 2000 Lexus Rx300 with 57,000 miles.

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!

Is is appropriate and/or necessary to change the transmission fluid on a Toyota Tundra 2004 that has 108,000 miles?


If your automatic transmission fluid has not previously been changed, it would be a good idea to change the fluid at this point. With 100,000 miles on the transmission, it would also be a good time to drop the transmission pan and change the internal filter, too. That's a messy job, and one that I have started paying people to do--good thing you only do it about every 75,000-100,000 miles.

Ordinarily, it's a pretty good idea to change the transmission fluid every 50-60,000 miles, especially if you do a lot of start and stop driving or especially if you use your vehicle to tow anything. Fresh transmission fluid will probably help your truck shift a bit more smoothly. More importantly, the fresh dose of lubricants and the like will reduce wear on the transmission bands. I'd rather change my fluid more often than have to rebuild my transmission. With proper maintenance, though, your transmission should last well past 150,000 miles; I've seen Toyota transmissions with well over 200,000 miles on them with fluid changes as their only maintenance. Some have made it close to 300,000 miles with only fluid and filter changes, but I wouldn't count on that for the average transmission.

My 2003 Yukon has 110000 miles. I know the plugs and wires need replaced. What else should I do.


PCV valve if it has one, some GM trucks do not. air filter, use some strong fuel injection cleaner, not much else, other parts in this system are replaced as they fail. (cam position sensor, coils etc.)

be sure to grease the wire boots to prevent moisture and corrosion, and you might consider anti-seize on the plug threads.

When do you change a timing belt on a 1998 lexus lx470 thanks brian


For most Toyota vehicles, to be safe you should change the timing and accessory belts, associated belt tensioners, thermostat, water pump, coolant, plugs, fluids, and filters every 60,000 miles.

Caution on what to put in the LX470 automatic height adjustment system. Dealer said unless correct fluid is put in the system the seals may fail. Specifically warned against break fluid. Cost to repair is over $3,000. I bought a can of the fluid at the Lexus dealer for about $26. The can was approx. 1/2 gallon.
