Question about 1993 Lexus Ls 400
Randy, I would stay where you are unless you want power at take off. IMO that consumes more gas. So, if you want more power, you might want to consider a tune up. Do you know when it was last done? Besides, regular servicing is also very important. Good luck.

Transmission seems to be slipping and may need to be rebuilt. This transmission may be stuck in a high gear and the on way to repair is to have it rebuilt. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

It sounds as though your trans is going out. How is reverse? If reverse is real strong then you may just have a solenoid going out. Drop the pan and change the oil and filter if you are comfortable doing that. Inspect the pan for metal shavings and contaminents. Otherwise it would need to go to a shop for repair.

Had this problem when I rebuilt my engine. Turns out, that I had plugged back in a sensor that was previously unplugged. There is a known manufacturer's defect on some Achievas where a sensor on the transmission was mounted upside-down. Symptoms caused by this are primarily the car staying in gear (and thus stalling) when stopped, and failing to downshift while slowing down. Just unplug this pesky sensor, located roughly underneath and to the battery side of the throttle body. Be careful, though, because I don't know if running long term in this configuration will lead to transmission damage (although my transmission doesn't show any signs of troubles now that the thing is disconnected.)

I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY CAR. 93 LS 400. THAT WOULD BE YOUR FUEL FILTER OR THE FUEL PUMP GOING BAD. TRY CHANGING THE FILTER FIRST. THE DEALER TRIED TO CHARGE ME $980 TO CHANGE FUEL PUMP.
