    Have 2002 Lexus RX300 that has 97,000 miles & since last Feb. starting car problems occurred. One day it is fine than weeks later problem happens again. It has been checked twice by different Lexus mechanics & they can never recreate condition, car seems to be running fine to them. Is it ignition problems? Car starts but than dies.

you may have bad or very dirty fuel injectors causing too much fuel into the cylinders causing rough running and smell of gas. do you have a fuel leak or too high fuel pressure.

My truck some times dies on exceleration and ruff ideal than runs fine


I had the same problem with my 93 K2500 it only has 159000 on it. It was my catalytic converter, drop the Y pipe going into your exhaust manifold then drive it. You should feel an immediate difference. You can replace it or cut it open if your state doesn't have emission laws. It cost me around 250 and a couple hours of work.

Car shakes at stop signs, very poor gas mileage, and sputters whe


Try having your fuel injector cleaned, you can start with running fuel injector cleaner though your gas tank and if that does not help then you have to get it cleaned out professionally or even worst have the injector's replaced if they are bad.
The other thing that will give it bad fuel would be a bad air intake temperature sensor go bad, as for the ruff idle that is common to a dirty or stuck EGR valve.
Good luck and keep me posted, by the way, what kind of Garage did you take it too? And are there and DTC codes from the ECM?

Starts up ok. tries to die though when idiling and will backfire and sputter. giving it gas to keep it going or revving it up more starts to cause the little fireball effect




did you have your fuel pump looked at! mine did the same thing ,had to replace tank, cause of small rust holes and fuel pump was bad. this cost ed me 850.00 to have fixed. hope you have better luck!
