Open Question

1991 ES 250 Transnission won't go in reverse.

Car ran fine, then suddenly would not go in reverse. I jacked it up and when I put it in reverse the wheels go forward. Fluid does not smell burnt. any ideas? I removed the shift cable to confirm the car was in reverse and that the cable adjustment was not off. Any ideas?

No you can get to them by using an extension on your rachet with a rotating socket. Play around with the extension and rotating sockets to see which works best.

Start by checking the least expensive items:

Make sure you are not activating the O/D switch in the shift stick inadvertently.

Look at the display panel, if the "Eng" light is on, you must get the code and repair the affected item. If you have knock sensors and/or oxygen sensors malfunctions that may prevent the transmission from shifting to O/D.

Check the ground cables located in the engine compartment, especially the ones behind the air intake manifold. If they are loose or broken it affects the ECU (car computer) and causes the transmission to work erratically. If they become disconnected it may burn the ECU and shut down the car.

Now going to more profound mechanics, it could be a sticking shift solenoid valve, your RX300 transmission have five of those located were the transmission oil strainer (filter) is. It can also be an ECU malfunction and/or related to the wiring from the ECU to the transmission connectors.

Always start from the least expensive and recheck the obvious. Good luck.

Where do you find the thermostat for the radiator on a 1991 lexus es 250?


Hi, Most of the time you can follow the UPPER radiator hose to the engine and there will be the thermostat housing. On Reverse Flow cooling systems you follow the LOWER radiator hose. All the thermostat does is trap coolant in the engine until it reaches a certain temperature, then opens to the radiator to be cooled. Don't forget to bleed the air from the highest place in the cooling system. Sometimes that's the reservoir, but look for a small plug high on engine. Good luck
