Question about 1996 Lexus ES 300

1 Answer

Solved problem to the first posted guest:

Okay well, seems to me that on your 96' Lexus your engine pressure is down a lot...more than what should happen normally...have you redlined it quite a lot in the past?  If so, you defiantly want to get it checked...there dould also be a problem with your driveline, I suggest having a specialist look at could have a clog in some part of the out side that connects to the differential.  which is horrible....meaning you have a 3,000 work to be done on your car...that's what happened to mine, well cloes to it. almost crahed because it finally gave out on me.  GET IT LOOKED AT....don't let yourself be charged over 3,000. if it's more ask what it's for. they probably wont charge more than that, but you never know

Could loose clamps on the hose make my 91 lexus ls 400 overheat

Absolutely... Whitney Suggs!

And a rapid down hill slide from there...

First huge.. HUGE mistake folks make from there
is using WATER rather than the appropriate mix of
ANTI-FREEZE... to top-up their LOST COOLANT (RED).

That ALLOWS ELECTROLISYS ... dissimilar metals start swapping electrons... (first) aluminum engine parts
start to erode... soon followed by SERIOUS ENGINE DAMAGE
(ASSUMMING none was accomplished by OVERHEATING).

Smart suggestion here would be to do STANT
Pressure Tester evaluation... PASS okay...

THEN... a cooing system FLUSH and REFILL
to your manufacturers' SPECIFICATIONS.

My lexus sc400 wont start

You are in a position where you need to test the fuel source. There is usually a "port" on the fuel injector rail which is used to test the fuel pressure. There are pressure gauges to borrow at Autoloan, Oreillys, Advance, or similar.

Where the difference is in testing is how the ECU may be broken. Using starting fluid, if the engine fires and attempts to run, then the firing order is okay and for some reason, the fuel system is dry. But if the engine makes no attempt to fire with starting fluid, then it is a spark problem and probably the ECU.

A person with a Scanner should be able to get a signal from the car if there is either defect. Something severe enough to prevent starting should make a warning light activate to "check engine" or a wrench symbol to appear on the dash.

96 lexus ls400. Car idles to high and sounds really rough until completely warm then seems to run normal, worried this is stressing the engine out, could this be an idle control sensor/valve problem ?

The first thing I would do is remove the hose connected to the intake and see if there isa lot of blackish brown buildup on the plate, if there is you need to buy some top engine cleaner and with a tooth brush clean the throttle plate on the back side and also the pipe that it sits in. Over time Gum builds up from back fires that you can't feel and causes the plate to open up and gradually will cause this problem.
Check this first and if you find that it is dirty then let me know and I will tell you how to do a top engine clean to get it running better, I do this in a order that won't cost you as much. If there is build up in the engine it will also cause the engine not to get good fuel mileage. Check this first and let me know so I can help you save money, you can do the top engine clean yourself. As far as sensors go I do the simplest things first before moving on to the sensors.

96 Buick LeSabre Oil Pressure issue

Well Serenity, it sounds like your car has a few problems. You are right about not driving it with the oil light on. Have it towed. The shop can scan for engine codes w/out starting the vehicle. There should be some trouble codes stored on the car's computer if the engine light went on and off. This will give your mechanic some clues as to what is wrong. Ask for the code #'s in case you have any questions later. It sounds like tranny and engine problems. Your description is quite good, lots of detail. I just read a post that said 'car won't start.' Not much to go on! It's difficult to diagnose w/out seeing/hearing/driving the car, but no details?? Anyway, when I started to read your post, I was thinking power steering pump (making the noise), until you mentioned the oil pressure issue, which points to engine lubrication issues, and probably the noise. The rpm's running a bit high before transitioning (I take that as 'shifting'), sounds like a slipping tranny, but maybe it's just part of the engine problem. Difficult to diagnose further w/out more info (codes), but it sounds like your engine may be cooked. Give an update w/ any more info or further questions. Good luck, Curt

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
