Question about 1997 Lexus LX 450
Vehicle has 112000 miles on 4.5L L6 SFI DOHC 24V ENGINE, PREVIOUS OWNER WAS TOLD TO REPLACE THE TIMING BELT. WHEN IS THAT NECESSARY? WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO THE ENGINE IF IT WAS NOT CHANGED AND THE BELT BROKE?
Full time 4- wheel drive vehicle dose not have front & rear diff. locks unless vehicle came with option.Their would be diff. lock switches on dash below radio assembly & front & rear diff. lock illuminations on instrument panel.Vehicle dose have a center diff. lock which will illuminate on the instrument panel when transfer case is shifted into low.

Well don , if this is a 4wd , actually even if it wasn't i show it to have locking diff(s) , if you have 4wd i show you to have a switch and a light somewhere on dash display indicating if it is locked in or not . , if you look at the passenger side of the rear differential you might see some electronical gizmo attached to it . i recently worked on a lx470 , it was awesome , i cracked the woodgrain cover around the power window switch , ouch , it cost $500 just for that little piece of woodgrain , lexus is very proud of their parts , lol , enjoy that vehicle . i would sure appreciate a FIX YA vote . thank you .
