Check engine light on 2000 Lexus RX300

Would a clogged cabin filter have anything to do with the check engine light coming on? If I disconnect the battery will that reset the check engine light?
Thanks

My Rx300 had a new wngine installed (Free) from Lexus. The mileage is 43,000 on the new engine. The car is "cutting out" while driving and I am trying to narrow down the problem. THANKS, Bob Russell


if you are traveling at more then 2000 rpms when it starting to cut out change the fuel filter it's clogged
if you are haveing the problem at low speed have the fuel pump checked,,, if everything is fine you have a ignition problem

VSC warning light and check engine code 786 on Lexus 2002 RX300


The VSC warning light, Trac Off and check engine is probably an easy fix. If you look under the air filter/cleaner box there is probably a rubber hose that has been disconnected from a steel line. This is common if you have had the oil changed recently, the tech will check the ail filter and doesn't realize the hose has been disconnected.

Lexus RX300 engine light n VSC light comes on


VSC means Vehicle Stability Control.

It comes on when the sensor send a signal that the vehicle is not stable on the ground.....check the wheel balancing and alignment and the air pressure of your tires too.

Good luck.

HOW MANY LITERS OIL NEEDS LEXUS RX300 2001?


You need 5 quarts in the Lexus RX300. Beware, the RX300 has a history of engine sludge problems (just search the internet for Toyota engine sludge). I would recommend Mobil 1 (this is FULL synthetic) and for viscosity I would recommend 5w-30 in the winter and 10w-30 in the summer. Your manual will verify the viscosity that I have mentioned. You must use good engine oil with this vehicle or else you will have an engine sludge problem and this could cost you a new engine. The RX300 is a wonderful vehicle and very reliable, but it requires some care that you must give it or else it will cost you a lot of money and maybe leave you stranded. For instance, change the oil regularly (no more than 4000 mile intervals) and also change the transmission fluid (no more than 60000 mile intervals). Search online for transmission failures in the RX300 - you'll find that the people who did not get a transmission flush were very sorry!!

99 RX300 Engine code keeps coming up lean


Check for vacuum leaks. ie, vacuum lines them selves, the rubber tube that runs from the air filter to the throttle body. If it has a plastic intake manifold, possibly the rubber port seal gaskets between it and the engine. Lean codes are set when the PCM isn't monitoring all the air coming into the engine (vac leak) or low fuel pressure.
