The car would not run smooth and would back fire ls 400_


Lexus is very particular about the timing belt. I would check this first. Any slop or looseness in it, it needs replaced along with the pullies and tensioner. Timing belt kit has all you would need for it. Also if you have to replace this I would suggest that you replace the water pump also. And vise versa..

I have a 1991 Lexus LS400, I will be driving it and it will up and die on me as though it is not getting any fuel, I've taken it to the shop and they are unable to find anything wrong, they said fuel pump...


Have the timing checked out. If it is off a couple of teeth, the engine should run, but will die when warmed up. Your 8 Cylinder uses a timing belt with a hydraulic belt tensioner. If the tensioner is leaking, or worn from old age, the belt may jump a couple of teeth. I believe your engine is an interference engine. If the belt has slipped, it is possible you may have bent valves, or worse.

Just wondering, when the engine dies on you while driving, does it start right back up, or does it start up only after cooling down?

1992 lexus ls 400 timing belt


I have the same problem with my 94 LS, its getting fixed now. The camshaft sensor is telling the computer that the timing is off, meaning your timing belt is either jumping or missing teeth, or it may be going bad. It is a very big job, so I suggest replacing the belt, water pump, tensioner, and maybe the seals and pulleys as well. Are you at a lost of power, has you car ever cut off at a stop red light or when driving?
