SOURCE: when i put my car in reverse it won't move but will drive forward perfect and is full of transmission fluid

Assuming this is an automatic transmission, odds are you have lost a band in your transmission, this will require a rebuild,  you may also notice it will fail to shift into high gear as well?

SOURCE: car won't drive forward or in reverse

this is the speed shift solenoid and a possible faulty transmission filter as well. the best thing for this issue is to pull the tranny and check for filter clogs and change the shift solenoid.

The transmission has gone bad and all I can say is that you need to replace it.

Good luck.

SOURCE: 96 lexus ls400. Car idles high and runs rough

It could be a idle air valve, a loose, unplugged or missing vacuum hose or a throttle position sensor.

I doubt it.
Probably a vac leak or problem with the throttle body.
The engine computer controls idle speed.

My 92 Lexus LS400 recently lost all forward gears but reverse works just fine.


You can only perform certain tasks yourself on a transmission. In this case it sounds like you need to visit a transmission shop. On occasion cleaning the oil and filter, making sure the trans is upto the correct level on fluid, may resolve an issue. If it does not then you probably need professional assistance.

You shoould visit a good independent rather than a lexus specialist as they will almost certainly charge an arm and leg for labor


GOOD LUCK

Idle on 1996 lexus ls400 goes real high up and down


More often than not this is caused by a large vacuum leak on the engine, the surge up and down is the computer trying to slow the idle. Use a bottle of propane gas and a torch adapter with a rubber hose on it, spray the gas around the top of the top of the engine and alos around any vacuum hoses from the engine, if you hit a vacuum leak the engine will sound much different, repair as needed.

I had the same problem with my 1992 LS400. My Lexus mechanic fixed it by replacing the MAF(Mass Air Flow).

This used to drive me crazy when the weather was hot.

My lexus ls400 1996 shakes violently when i shift from parking position to drive position. Also the idle is very high over 2000. It takes 10 to 15 min to get under 2000. anyone has answer


the high idle is likely the problem. you will probably have to take your car in and have it checked. probably a vaccum or sensor not working right.
