I looked it up on AutoZone.com and it looks like there is only one coil.  You can verify that by giving them a call.  However, to me it sounds like you might be having a problem with your idle air control valve.  Since you are only having problems when the vehicle is at idle I would take a look at your IAC.  It is located on the throttle body and is usually held on by two screws.  When the IAC starts to go bad you will have problems with the vehicle when idling.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

99 Lexus ES300 - Car hesitates & sputters when starting off usually until 2nd gear kicks in & sometimes when going uphill. However, no CEL. Ideas?


The flexible accordion hose that connects the MAF to the throttle body might have a small crack in it. They are sometimes hard to see, especially if in the accordion folds or underneath. Starting off or going uphill will result in enough torque to lift one side of the engine enough to open the crack and cause hesitation.

I just replaced the spark plugs on my 98 ford explorer suv 5.0. do i need to have the ignition retimed?


Wow! So many things can cause hesitation or miss. Did you run the OBD II scan? Auto-Zone will scan it for you. Usually on an older car,unless the spark plug wiring has been recently replaced,you need to do that too.
Then you have a lot of age on the coil pack also.Also clean your MAF sensor and your idle air control valve at the throttle gizmo.
Describe the hesitation a little more. don-ohio (:^)

1999 Lexus GS300. Car is hesitating and can barely pick up speed no matter how hard I press the gas.


it sounds like it could either be a throttle positioning sensor failing, or possibly a fuel injector line could be loose which will cause air into the fuel system and cuase low power and hesitation,,

How is a tune up for a 93 lexus es300


replace spark plugs, spark plug wires, cap, ignition rotor, air filter, oil change, transmission flush, transmission filter&gasket .. That should do it.. It'lI be good if you could check your timing as well.. do this tune up every 15-20 thousand miles and oil changed every 3000 miles, depend on how much you drive it.
