SOURCE: How to Replace the AC filter on my Lexus 01 LX 470

Perform steps 1-3 first to inspect whether you have the access doors or not before ordering filters!!!

Did this little project this evening. Figured I'd write it up.

5 Easy steps:

1. Remove glove box door by removing both screws at the bottom of the door.

2. First pop the the little flap with a fuse/relay out of the black plastic shield in the upper portion of the glove box opening. Next push it back behind the shield through the opening. Next remove the 3 screws holding the shield in place. Don't pull this shield out yet!! Read step 3 first.

3. Gently pull the shield out. Be careful because the glove box light is still plugged into this part. It is located on the right side of the shield. Once it is pulled out slightly, unplug the bulb from the harness and now you can fully remove the part.

4. Now you can see the vertical cover where the air filters reside. The cover is about 5 inches tall and about 1 inch wide. It has 2 tabs on the upper portion of the cover. Squeeze these tabs towards each other and pull the cover off.

5. The filters are now exposed. They are stacked on top of each other. Pull the first filter out then lift the next filter up and pull out. Put new filters back in and reverse the procedure.


Parts needed:
2 Cabin air filters (Toyota PN 88568-60010 if you drop CDan a pm)
1 Phillips screw driver

Time needed:
No more than 15 minutes

SOURCE: low brake fluid light remains on even though fluid

was it ever low? if so then the float inside the reservoir is most likely stuck down causing it to keep the light on. if not the float switch may be bad.

SOURCE: lexus lx 470, low suspension fluid, effecting

Is the suspension fluid low. If it is, try first to add specific Suspension Fluid for LX470. It is part number 08886-01805 and any Lexus Dealer would be able to look up. Cost about $ 30 it comes in 2.5 Liters. If driving at higher speeds it is normal for it to drop just a bit and resume to balanced height when parked.

Changing pump and bleeding power stearing on a 1983 buick riviera


1. Replace any hydraulic line showing external damage. Rubber hoses more than 4 years old should be replaced. Install new seals for all disconnected fittings (as required) and install an in-line power steering filter. Tighten all hose fittings to OE specifications. 2. Flush the entire power steering system using the vehicle manufacturers recommended fluid. Fill pump reservoir to the proper level.
3. Disable engine to allow cranking without starting. This can be done by unplugging the main power wire (large red one) from your Delco HEI Distributor unit. Block wheels, put transmission in neutral or park and set parking brake, then crank engine 5 to 10 seconds (avoid overheating starter motor).
4. Refill pump reservoir as necessary. Repeat step 3 until level is correct.
5. Enable the engine to allow starting. Start engine and let idle. Slowly turn steering wheel from lock to lock a number of times.
6. Turn engine off and inspect fluid level and condition. Add or remove fluid as necessary. If fluid is foaming, wait one hour then recheck level. Repeat step 5 and 6 until fluid level is correct and shows no sign of air. If the problem persists recheck installation and connections.
1. With engine off, apply and release brake pedal 5 to 10 applications to deplete accumulator reserve pressure. With foot slightly pressing brake pedal, start engine. Pedal should drop and then push back against your foot.
2. With engine running, turn steering wheel until lightly against steering stop. After 5 seconds return wheels to the straight ahead position and turn engine off. Apply and release brake pedal. There should be at least one power assisted brake application. Start engine and allow accumulator to recharge before moving vehicle. 3. Test drive vehicle.
NEVER operate any vehicle until brake and booster systems are functioning properly. Remember, your vehicle is only as good as it's braking system. Brakes are the singlemost important component on any motorized vehicle.

This could be caused by several things: (1) Sensor is bad & ya they can and do go bad. (2) Your shocks may need to be replaced. (3)you would want to diagnose if you have a problem with your AHC.
Unfortunately, the only test I know of is to check if your globes are bad via the "Height Test".
I have no way of knowing whether the other components are bad or if my ride is standard / okay. I just have a gut feeling that it can be improved. At worse, you'll be extending the life of your AHC by reducing wear on it.
AHC height test.
Put vehicle in LOW. Mark fluid level in AHC reservoir.
Put vehicle in HIGH.
Number of graduations (ticks) on the reservoir from LO to HI should be at least 7. If less, your globes are shot and it's very expensive to replace.

Shocks


On the hydro suspension system there are spheres which act as shock dampers. These are pumped up by the engine pump and run around 2400psi max.

As the wheels move up and down the 'ram' you would call the shock absorber displaces fluid into and out of the sphere/s. If these spheres are more than 6 years old, they go hard, because the nitrogen gas in them has leaked away. ( Gaseous Physics. They all do it. Nitrogen has a smaller molecual than the rubber trying to contain it.)

This nitrogen gas pushes a thick rubber diaphragm towards the hydraulic fluid acting as a spring. The small orifice the fluid has to pass through into and out of the sphere acts as a damper to the wheels movements up and down. A sensor on the axle/s keeps the pressure in the system at the correct ride hight.

You need new spheres if they have never been replaced.

  1. Use a syringe or similar device to remove as much fluid as possible from the reservoir. Some fluid will be spilled from lines during removal of the hydraulic unit; protect adjacent painted surfaces.


CAUTION Brake fluid contains polyglycol ethers and polyglycols. Avoid contact with the eyes and wash your hands thoroughly after handling brake fluid. If you do get brake fluid in your eyes, flush your eyes with clean, running water for 15 minutes. If eye irritation persists, or if you have taken brake fluid internally, IMMEDIATELY seek medical assistance.
  1. Remove the splash shield from the left front wheel house or fender area.
  2. Remove the coolant reserve tank.
  3. Remove the coolant reservoir bracket.
  4. Remove the dust shield from below the hydraulic unit.
  5. Disconnect the brake hoses and lines from the hydraulic unit. Correct reassembly is critical. Label or identify the lines before removal. Plug each line and each port immediately after removal.
  6. Remove the cover from the relay box. Disconnect the electrical harness to the hydraulic unit.
  7. Remove the bolts holding the 3 mounting brackets to the vehicle; remove the unit downward and out of the vehicle.


NOTE The hydraulic unit is heavy; use care when removing it. The unit must remain in the upright position at all times and be protected from impact and shock.
  1. Set the unit upright, supported by blocks on the workbench. The hydraulic unit must not be tilted or turned upside down. No component of the hydraulic unit should be loosened or disassembled.
  2. The brackets and relays may be removed if desired.

To install:
  1. Install the brackets and relays if they were removed. Tighten the bracket bolts to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
  2. Install the hydraulic unit into the vehicle, keeping it upright at all times.
  3. Install the retaining bolts holding the brackets to the vehicle. Tighten the bolts to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
  4. Connect the hydraulic unit wiring harness.
  5. Install the cover on the relay box.
  6. Connect each brake line loosely to the correct port and double check the placement. Tighten each line to 10 ft. lbs. (13 Nm).
  7. Fill the reservoir to the MAX line with brake fluid.
  8. Bleed the brake system.
  9. Install the dust shield and the coolant reserve tank with its bracket.

1996 oldsmobile bravada, Air blows through defroster only. will not switch to vent or floor heat


Open your hood. You should see a ball attached to it, (just in front of the driver side). There are vacuum lines connected to a ball reservoir. Replace them. Mine were turning into dust. I had the same problem and fixing the vacuum lines corrected it. This is for a 1996 Bravada. Blazer's have the same vacuum lines, but the reservoir is not there.

Steering not responding well


Automobiles: 2006-2007 Ford Five Hundred 2WD & AWD, Montego

If the steering is getting a little hard to turn at low speeds, this would indicate a loss of Power Steering, and the steering is reverting to "Non-Power" steering, just like the days of the Ford Model T or Model A. Loss of power steering is usually caused by low level of PSF (Power Steering Fluid).
So first on my checklist would be checking the PSF level in the reservoir.
Also bleed (air) from PS (Power Steering) pump.

The Ford Five Hundred has front MacPherson struts, so check these for leakage (of the dampening fluid in the strut cylinder), or breakage of their coil springs.
These springs can actually weaken over time, but this is impossible to see - you must "feel" it by bouncing the strut up & down - preferably with your hands on the top of the strut tower in the engine compartment (rather than on the exterior finish).
If the MacPherson struts have weak/broken springs, these components are not separately serviceable, and the strut would have to be replaced as a unit (and preferably both left/right to maintain smooth/even ride).

The Five Hundred also has rear shock absorbers with springs - check for leaks/breakage/weakness here too.

Steering losing responsiveness/wander - checklist
Priority Action Part Type Cause
1 Inspect Rack & Pinion - Center Wear From Internal Fluid Leaking Around The Rack Piston.
2 Inspect Steering Stabilizer Bracket - Loose or Broken Steering Stabilizer Bracket.
3 Inspect Front Lower Control Arm - Front Lower Control Arm loose/missing bolt(s)
4 Inspect Front Lower Ball Joints - Front Lower Ball Joint(s) Worn/Loose
5 Inspect Front Upper Ball Joints -Front Upper Ball Joint(s) Worn/Loose
6 Inspect Tire Pressure - Tire Pressure should be 35 PSI for the Five Hundred and Montego's P225/55R18 OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) tires.

Harsh ride - checklist

1 Inspect Rear Shock/Strut - Shocks/Strut failing/leaking.
2 Inspect Front Shock/Strut - Shocks/Strut failing/leaking.
3 Inspect Coil Spring - Incorrect Coil Spring Selection or Installation.
4 Inspect Coil Spring - Coil Spring broken.

How to change the fluid of the power steering ?


Open the engine hood.

There will be several fluid reservoirs under the bonnet. If the car / truck has power steering, one of them will hold about 150-300ml of fluid that should be a red color. If you put some on your hand it is very slippery.

The other reservoirs will hold water for the windscreen washer, and one connected to the radiator to hold coolant.

Check that the reservoir you intend to put the power steering fliud in is not connected to the radiator and does not contain water.

Take the cap off to check.

If you can't see in to the bottom, roll up some kitchen paper towel and feed that in until you get some fluid on it - red, you hope!

There will be marks (horizontal lines) on the side of the reservoir showing "Min" (minimum) and "Max" (maximum or full). Slowly pour in replavcement fliud until the tiop of the fluid is between the marks.. Put the cap back on, close the engine hood, drive for a short distance (2 km?) and check the levels again.

Top up the reservoir to just under "Max". Replace the cap.

Check the level after a short period of normal driving - a couple of weeks, If it is still going down a mechanic needs to check the power steering seals.

good luck.

I need new shocks on my 2001 LX470. The Toyata Dealership in Longview, TX has quoted me $1618 to replace the shocks. No one else will do it because the shocks have hydraulic fluid running through them. ...


take a look at www.strutmasters.com for replacement suspension kits for that vehicle. it is going to be expensive to swap it in, but once you have that stuff taken out you won't have to fix it again and again and again.
