Question about 1998 Lexus ES 300
My 1999 Lexus ES 300 starts but but stalls as soon as the foot is off the accelerator. It has 95000 miles and have followed the maintenance schedule rigidly. Any suggestions as to what could be the problem and what is a reasonable price to fix the problem. Any repair shop is Ok to fix the problem or a Lexus dealer is a must.
Thanx for your help.
First of all, change the Lexus Dealership who is doing your rigid maintenance because they are ripping you off and not doing the work or careless on the way out of your engine compartment.
At 95k, you should have changed out your timing belt, replace all the sparkplugs, cleaned out the throttle body, cleaned the MAF sensors, replace the O2 sensors, inspected and replace the fuel rails, and the spark distribution units and you should not be getting a simple problem as this.
All this said, open you hood and look for a vacuum hose that is disconnected. Most of the hoses which will cause this type of problem is located around the air filter box or connected to that side of the engine.
