Question about 2001 Lexus LX 470
Wait 5 or 10 min & it may start OK
tow it to the repair shop & works OK every time
has done this about 6 times in the last year
More than likely the starter contacts or solenoid are going bad which explains the intermittent staring problem. You can take out the starter and see if you can replace the contacts or replace the starter entirely. Since this is a starter problem a diagnostic scanner will not be able to pin point the problem. I would recommend replacing the starter altogether. A rebuilt or used one can cost appr. $300 and another $400 labor unless you can DIY.
