My 92 Lexus LS400 recently lost all forward gears but reverse works just fine.


You can only perform certain tasks yourself on a transmission. In this case it sounds like you need to visit a transmission shop. On occasion cleaning the oil and filter, making sure the trans is upto the correct level on fluid, may resolve an issue. If it does not then you probably need professional assistance.

You shoould visit a good independent rather than a lexus specialist as they will almost certainly charge an arm and leg for labor


GOOD LUCK

I have a SHIFT SHOCK problem in LX570


It sounds like you need to get the auto flashed(computer re programming) I Live in Australia and thats whats happening here,the cars are being returned to the dealer to re programme the trans to correct the shifting faults,you would ask your self why is the oil being replaced or topped up on a new car and Lexus is known for its quality control,and technicians training,you may want to go to a different dealer if youre not getting satisfaction,this will fix your issues

Manual transmission light flickers off and on-car won't go over40


Is the car a manual or automatic, 4 or 6 cyl? If it is a manual trans the hard shift could be due to worn shift forks which were rather common in these cars, had them go out in my 90 GT a few years ago. Could also be low on lube or the wrong lube. To check the lube on a manual trans car remove the speedometer drive which is on the top of the trans. The fluid should be at the bottom of the gear on the drive. The proper fluid is ATF not heavy gear oil that ends up getting put in. Hope this helps
