Question about 1995 Lexus Sc 400

2 Answers

95 sc400 only seems to be running on part of the 8 cyl.

This car has run great until now. It's as though half the cyl gave out, sounded and behaved as though the cat converters were bad or stopped up. Not so, had that checked out. Odd thing is from under the hood the car sounds perfect, no misses, no jolts. But raise your head from under the hood and it's loud, has lost alot of power and smells like the gas is running so rich it's pathetic. Help

How do I check and fill fluids in a 95 dodge Dakota 6 cyl standard transmission?

on the side of the transmission there will be a filler bolt about half way or a little higher up on the transmission. not sure of the size possibly 1/2 or 5/8" wrench will fit, remove and stick your finger in straight then bend finger until you feel oil this will give you an idea or how much oil is there. if you need to add oil fill until the oil just starts to run out the bottom of the fill hole. you should use 80/90 weight gear oil.

My 95 ford f150 runs great till it warms up it seems then the fuel pump looses power n shuts down wait few mins kicks back on runs fine till few min later

Sounds like your ignition module it is common on fords to do this when its cool it will start and run fine but once it heats up the truck dies until you let it cool down again and then your up and running till it heats up again. Some modules are mounted on the fender others are mounted with the distributor have it checked and let me know how it went.

Starting Issue Possibly Gas Related

First go to HD or Lowe's and buy a bottle of StarTron Star Brite. Just use the amount they recommend. It's in a Blue 8oz. bottle. It'll take care of the corn gas problems. But it might cure your ails. Try it. It costs like 7 bucks. I use it in everything from gas trimmers to 18 wheelers to D-8's.

good luck,

Jun 25, 2009- Help! okay... got the CatCon figured out, busted a radiator hose, got that replace, now the cooling system is working just great!, BUT!!.. after it's been running just fine, all the sudden...

rent a fuel tester and check the fuel pressuer that is the first thing to do then if it holds 50 psi then your next issue is if it's a computer, On a 95 I beleive if the computer went south it would just go to base timing and still run fine but would have lousy gasy milage, so do the fuel pump test first, if it fails replace fuel pump fuel sock and fuel filter.
