SOURCE: 96 lexus es 300 blinking check engine light

Hi there;

#4 Miss-fire. All the things you are saying make a lot of sense. When the light is blinking the cylinder is actualy misfiring, & the smell you are smelling is the fuel that is not burning in the engine burning in the exahst. This can cause a lot of damage to the exausht if it is not repaired..
There is still a couple of things that need to be checked, first he needs to check to see if it is possibly a fuel injector that is sticking. He can do this easily by moving the #4 injector to another cylinder & run the car. When it starts missfiring he will need to see if it is still #4 or if it is the cylinder that he moved the injector to. if it is the new cylinder it is obviously the injector, if it is still #4 he will need to look into the possibility of the EGR valve sticking open or some other issue to do with valve timing or low compression.
I hope this helps
Farrout!

I had the same problem with mine, mechanic said it was a result of the O2 sensor (s) needing replaced. He replaced them and problem was solved.

SOURCE: check engine light is blinking and car does not

When the light is blinking it means the car is actively misfiring (which is why it's shaking and running rough). When this happens, pull over immediately and shut the car off. Running with a misfire can damage the engine.

You'll need to have the computer scanned for codes - they'll tell you which cylinder(s) are misfiring. Then you can investigate. Check the spark plugs for proper gap and to make sure that the car is igniting each cylinder correctly. If you have more than one cylinder misfiring, it increases the likelihood that the coil is bad. If you're unsure of doing this work, have the car towed to a shop that you trust and have them figure out the problem.

You have a bad coil pack, they usually crack from age and heat. It's best to replace them all. Check for a VW recall on this item.

Lexus ES300 Shakes/Vibrates At 45 MPH


Major transmission problem. That's what the flashing Check Engine light means.

If the Check Engine light is on all the time, it means there is a "fault code" stored in the computer. Take it to an auto parts store (like Auto Zone) and ask them to read the codes to see what it says. They should do it for free. If they won't, go to another auto parts store.

My IS250 AWD vaiberates whenever im setting on a red light the whole cars i viberating. The deeler said that i have a bent on one of my rims so thats why the car shakes. Also, whenever i go faster my car...


A bent rim cannot cause your vehicle to vibrate while stopped. What you describe seems more likely to be an engine misfire or possibly a drive train problem.

Steering Wheel Shaking at 50-60 MPH


I doubt these problems have anything to do with each other.The shaking steering wheel could be an out of balance or bad tire(torn belt),a bent wheel,or improperly tightened lug nuts(not torqued evenly).The check engine light will require a code scanner to see what the code is.(if you work on your own cars,you might want to buy at least an entry-level code reader/clearer,some are under 50 bucks).

Check engine lights came on, es 300 lexus,1999, constantly blinking, run rough at slow speed


A constantly blinking check engine light means you have a misfiring engine that is bad enough to cause your catalytic converter to go bad! Take it to the shop... probably means ignition parts and the upper manifold has to come off... and that's no fun! Good luck.

Car engine light on light blinking shaking over due for oil chang


Your engine has a cylinder miss-firing, that not only shakes the car but makes the check engine light blink the cylinder number that is missing, don't drive the car this way or u will overheat the exhaust catalytic converter, this can cause a fire.
