Question about 1995 Lexus Sc 400

1 Answer

Clunks while idle, hesitates when I push the gas.

My 1995 SC400 just started having this problem today. It feels like I'm pulling a trailer, so I think that not all the cylinders are firing. Could it be anything else? If I had to guess, I'd say it's an electrical problem. Injector cleaner did nothing. Thank you!

1995 F350 We pulled a trailer today and after we got a little down the road the ABS light started flashing. When we stopped for gas we could not get the shifter out of park without pulling the #18 fuse....


Well, it could mean that the emergency brake has not been fully released.The ABS system light is on if something has occurred within the ABS system. Something faulty may have happened there, get it checked out!

2000 Xterra hesitateing, backfireing, not accelerating above 20mi


Airflow sensor very well may cause it , and Throttle position and temperature sensor too.
All of it has to be checked with good scaner , that can monitor values and data from ECM.
You need to find a better shop.

Got a 1995 nissan maxima with 179,000 that hesitates or misses.


hello, also check plug wires,distributator, cap and rotor button, you can check plug wires,at knight time, crank engine, with hood up, walk around car, look at plug wires while motor is running, see if any sparks are coming from plug wires, also if it clunks, like you said, you may have broke motor mount, transmission mount, check for air lines leaking also

Check EGR valve this controls idle speed it might have carbon build up hold the valve open. All so check fuel pressure.

When engine is warmed up the car begins hesitating


I really think it's the TPS, (throttle positioning sensor) on the throttle body. When this sensor is defective or out of position the vehicle will idle like that and even stall. If you haven't had it scanned, you should do so, that will probably tell you the problem.

The timing belt is one tooth off. Pull the covers back off, set the engine to TDC and recheck your marks, and make sure that the tension is correct.

1995 eagle talon esi none turbo


sounds like you may have an injector seal leak or an air leak at the filter check all fittings the rough idle is not abnormal with the air but a tune up will help also there is an air control solenoid if you left it unhooked broke a wire to it it will not start with the pedal being pushed and will idle lower than normal and very rough when air is on that is what i would at first..
