Question about 2000 Lexus ES 300

1 Answer

My Lexus es300 wont drive when put into reverse or drive. Could this be because of transmission/ bad solenoid or could it have something to do with bad ABS sensor?

I was driving my car down the street and all of a sudden it started shaking real bad and wouldn't drive anymore. I turned the car off for a minute or so and then turned it back on and tried to drive again and it went a few more feet (real roughly) then wouldn't go inanymore at all. Then I tried to see if reverse would work but it wouldn't. Only gear that worked was neutral so I had some people help me push it into a parking space.

There are so many things it could be, but I think I would have it towed to a competent shop and check the diagnostics. More info might help you get more DIY help. Running rough... engine diagnostics, transmission not engaging... transmission diagnostics. Electronic diagnostics are your eyes on modern automobile problems. I hope this helps.

Why won't My 2000 Lexus es300 go into reverse or neutral?


Probably the stick that control your transmission has moved. It's not sync. I recommend that you take it to a specialist.

Shift lever repair


Most likely the shift cable that connects the shifter to the transmission if you can find where it connects to the transmission check there first sometimes they can get disconnected. then if your shifter is in the center console take the cover off and make sure shifter is still connected to cable. If that's not the problem and the cable is moving at the transmission then it's a problem inside the transmission

1993 lexus ES300 will not go when in drive


sounds like you have a major transmission problem. expect a big repair bill sorry!! if they deem the transmission to be shot, look online for a used or remanufactured transmission and see if it would be cheaper to replace than repair. I have a 1995 jaguar that would go in reverse but not in drive, cost to repair: $2700 cost for used transmission: $1000 and i put it in myself. had i not it probably would have been $1500-1700 but thats still a big savings. good luck and again sorry!

Problem w/transmission Lexus ES300 1999


Is your O/D off? There should be a light under your speedometer, if it says "O/D OFF" than your car wont go to fourth gear. You can turn the overdrive back on on the knob that changes gears, theres a little button on the side. Press it and you should be good.
