Get your engine computer scanned and post the code or google it, you will find your problem. Since its a 1994, I am not sure who will scan it, but I would start with the Lexus dealer.

I have a 2003 Lexus ES 300 and when I do any highway driving at about 70mph for more than an hour, the transmission fluid overheats and the check engine light comes on. When it cools down, the check engine...


Flush your car's transmission fluid , but don't do it yourself or at local shops take it to Toyota and have them replace fluid and filter . Reason why they use special pumps to extract all fluids properly . And actually replace it correctly other shops the only thing they will do is drop the oil pan and drain the fluid in the oil pan only . There is still fluid all over the lines and torque converter . Recommend dealer all the way , it's only 10-30 $. Different .besides you get genuine parts and fluids . Good luck I hope this help .

I have a 2006 GS 300 lexus that I can't get oil in it, it is not leaking where is it going? It has 130 K miles, Lexus says it need a engine. I bought it brand new and Lexus did all the services. Lexus...


There are no known issues with any LEXUS manufactured after '02 that would cause this issue by default. If you are burning oil, and its not leaking out, then one of two things is happening. 1. Its getting into your coolant system. (in this case, check your coolant system for a oil layer. TO FIX THIS you mill have to replace the block / i.e. get a new engine if you want it to last.) 2. Its getting into your valve chamber and burning with the fuel. (in this case, a gap has formed within the valve system letting in oil and can be identified by white smoke from the exhaust. TO FIX THIS you must replace head gasket and rings)
GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST

Water into oil and white smoke... already check thermostat... 1993 lexus es300... can timing belt cause this? or what/


the engine is leaking coolant internally, via either a bad head gasket, cracked cylinder head, or cracked block.

When I start my 2003 ES300 smoke comes out the exhaust


The same thing happened to my 2003 ES300 - the smoke is coming from the oil seeping into the motor's cylinders. This is the classic "Oil Gelling" problem in Toyota and Lexus vehicles. There is a factory recall on it, but it only covers to 2002 ES300 not 2003. The Lexus dealer confirmed my "oil gel" problem and went to bat for me with Lexus - they got the repair approved - Thank you Mr Local Lexus Dealer! The cost was nearly $4,000 - paid for by Lexus.

Engine light wenton, car heated up, car would not


If the engine overheated while driving, damage to the cylinder head gasket or engine block/cylinder head may have been done, which would prevent the vehicle from starting.

A standard engine compression check will tell the tale.

What is the cause of oil sludge in lexus rx 300 and engine failure.


drain that oil! then flash the engine using the flashing oil! if the problem still persist then that engine must be mixing oil and water through the cylinder head gasket!

If i'm not mistaken the light beside the battery sign is the check engine light. this lights up if anything under the hood is not functioning the way it should. Unfortunately i cannot be more specific on this. It just means that you could be staring at a major repair, or your gas cap could be too loose (no kidding).

Well as you've mention your oil is dropping at a very fast rate then its a good place to start checking. You can check if your oil seals are ok and might as well check all the filters...oil filters, fule filters air filters.

Hope i have answered your question. Goodluck!
