I have a 1999 Lexus rx300 and a couple months ago the check engine light started blinking. Since then it takes a while for it to accelerate and has no power going up hills. Any thoughts or ideas?

when you get warning lights flashing, I would have thought that you would go to a service shop and have the fault codes read and have the fault fixed
it is what you should be doing now

Check engine light and airbag light came on; now car will not start

I have run into this problem a few times where the dealer replacing the sensor and a month later light back on, take car back it may need a program update and sensor may be bad or crank sensor may need replacing.
I would have the code scanned at a local auto parts store and if the code is the cam then take it back to dealer to see what has happened.
The car i was working on had a cam sensor problem, replaced the sensor and light came back with same code. sent to dealer and dealer said after market part was bad, car needed an oem part, so they replaced it and in a few days same problem . took car back and this time they installed a program update and so far so good.

Bought my car about month ago service engine light has been on my change oil light comes off & on.It also hesitatel when taking off. my problem is - i was driving it runs good but it died an when

If the car is new, then check the engine oil level.
It is common for some cars driven around the dealers cold to suffer fuel ingress into the sump. This can "water-down" the engine oil, and allow it to be pushed into the cylinders and burnt.
This is an unlikely case, but I have come across it a few times. It's just a simple check to make. If the oil level is too high, and if it smells of fuel, then replace the engine oil and filter.

You will otherwise need a diagnostic computer. The car is under warranty, so they should take full care of it.

Car has not been driven for about a week, we had below freezing nights for a few nights. light, radio, electrical seem to work ok. motor makes an effort to turn over, shakes a little and makes a squeal...

drain and flush the cooling system and make sure that you use a 50/50 mixture of coolant and water when you fill it back up.

Common issue.... Most people are under the impression that if you use straight coolant in a vehicle, it will never overheat or freeze. WRONG...WRONG...WRONG,

Coolant needs water to activate or it will freeze just like water will.

Ford probe stalls

You should do a full tune up. Replace your Spark Plugs and Wires, PCV Valve, Air Filter, and Coils if needed.

Also you should do an oil change on it if it sat for a while.

Please let me know if your problem presists.
Thanks, Charlie
