Hey Jericho,

Being that cold many strange things happen to cars... Bluedia may be correect it just may be a gas ap that was not tightened to the 3 clicks that GM reccomends.
the Power steering unit will make noise on any car when hood is open and car in park as long as level is full I would look elsewhere unless you have fluid everwhere... The power steering unit is a pressured system like the radiator and cooling system if it is leakign You will know mess everywhere...

Best of Luck and BTW find a new mechanic without daughters lol

Hi there:
It's definately the next logical step since P1391 is for CMP (Camshaft) or CKP (Crankshaft) sensor loss. The cam sensor is available seperately, it's extremely easy to change, you don't even have to pull the distributor. Just take the cap and rotor off then pull the cam sensor out.



Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Trac off and check engine light for lexus es 300 check engine & trac control off lights & engine stutters while revving in park. Engine seems fine in drive... Reset lights without them returning...


A week ago, on my Lexus ES 300 (2001), "Check Engine" and "Trac Off" lights came on. This coincided with me filling the gas tank to the brim to round the dollar to be paid. I cleaned the gas tank cap and the tank opening. However, both lights persisted. On the same day, when I turned on the car again, there was a hesitance, a stuttering to come on. Both "Check Engine" and "Trac Off" lights were still on.

The next day, the car wouldn't come on at all. It sounded as the battery was dead. I couldn't even jump start the car. So, I got a new battery from Costco ($59) and put it in. It took 15-20 seconds of cranking to get the car started. Once it was started, the engine sounded fine and the RPM normal. The "Check Engine" light was off. However, the "Trac Off" was still on. I cleaned the gas tank cap one more time.

The next morning, when I turned the car on, there was no problems. It came on instantly as it used to be, didn't have any warning lights, and drove smoothly.

Engine skipping/misfiring, engine light flashing


Drive it into a dark place, or wait till dark. When it's running poorly, see if you can see any spark flying around. It sounds like plug wires.
