    the Lexus died & will not start fire power at all...does it sound like a fuel pump? If so, is it hard to remove the gas tank?

    Pull a spark plug out & stick it back in ignition wire , lay it on top of engine have another person try to start vehicle while observing if spark plug is sparking.If you have spark then you may have a fuel problem.Unless the t-belt slipped.Or if t-belt broke you will not have any spark.Another common problem for ES 250 is a burnt through ignition rotor, causing a no spark condition.If you have spark , try pulling off one of the small vacuum hose on the passanger side of intake manifold & spray carburator cleaner in vacuum port while someone cranks over the engine.If vehicle fires up or tries to you have a fuel problem & need to diagnoise from there. Good Luck

I have a 1990 Lexus 250 ES. Brake lights inop.

check the brake pedal switch by connecting a test light to it and ground.

When the pedal depresses you might hear a click or see the button depress.

The test light should light or not light changing as you press and release the pedal.

Another way to do this is to change the brake pedal switch and see if it works.

I hope this helps.

My 1990 Lexus LS 400 stalls unexpedly (at any speed).When put in neutral, it starts up and runs fine for a few minutes then stalls again. Why?

Your fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator are not supplying constant fuel pressure. Too much or too little is causing it to kill. You can pull the vacuum line from the regulaor and check for gas. If there is none, you need a pump, it is weak.
