Question about Lexus GS 300
Posted by Anonymous on
The starter contacts inside the starter are probably worn out.This is a very common fault on toyota starters.usually a couple clicks and it starts,then it gets worse,7 or 8 then it dies and just clicks.
the click is the solenoid moving back and forth.
if you remove the starter,you will see three small bolts on top of the solenoid assembly.open it up and remove the cover.Inside you will see two copper contacts,one on each side one is much bigger than the other.When the solenoid pulls in it connects the two.Remove the sets of nuts that the starter wires go to and the insulators and washers to change the contacts which can be bought from the dealer for 15 dollars or so. make sure to put the washers ,nuts etc back in exact order of removal.best of luck.i have repaired over 50 starters.the actual starter portion is not the issue.

go with standard pads.they wear a little faster than ceramics.but they dont wear down brake rotors.ceramics pads are hard and they cause brakes to squeak.also your car is under warranty with lexus dealership.i would use what they said. because you have future brake problem. they will void out warranty for not using their brakes.

Try blowing the radiator fins out (from the inside) with compressed air--bugs and other debris can clog the air flow. Do the radiator fan(s) run when hot? If not, check for blown fuse, seized fan motor(s), bad relay, or bad engine thermal sensor. Is it losing coolant water from somewhere?
