First make sure the level indicator float is plugged in. if it is plugged in make sure its not upside down. if its plugged in and right side up you probably need a new fluid level indicator. the bottle is located behind the passenger side corner of the front bumper. you will need to partially remove the plastic wheel liner to access the bottle.

How do I replace the windshield washer low fluid sensor. The low windshield washer fluid light is on and will not go off even though the washer fluid tank is full.


That sensor can be replaced. It's located on the washer fluid bottle which is found behind the front bumper and next to the passenger's fender.

Lexus rx300 2002 hard shift between 1st and 2nd. Fluid and filter changed 3000mi ago, car has 93000mi


The 1999-2003 Lexus RX300 models have a common failure of the engine computer that causes the harsh shifting of the transmission. You need to get the computer (ECM - Engine Control Module) rebuilt or replaced before it causes permanent damage to the transmission. Even if the transmission is already ruined, the ECM will still need to be repaired. Most often, the transmission is fine though, and rebuilding the ECM will restore the smooth shifts that the Lexus should have. Circuit Board Medics can rebuild the ECM and reprogram it so that you only have to plug it back in when you get it back. See the link below:

Nothing to change, add fluid to the reservoir in front. Lack of rear fluid could indicate a bad pump or hose connection feeding to the rear area or clogged sprayer tip

Low Washer fluid warning light came on my Lexus 2004 rx330. Fill up fluid to full, but low washer fluid warning did not go off. Is there a way to reset, or is there a loose connection? Headlight washer and...


There is a little float mechanism inside the washer tank that is probably stuck or binding. If the wiper/washers work, you have power to the fluid tank.
Pull of the top and see if you can locate it. You might need a piece of flexible, fine wire to GENTLY help it along...

HOW MANY LITERS OIL NEEDS LEXUS RX300 2001?


You need 5 quarts in the Lexus RX300. Beware, the RX300 has a history of engine sludge problems (just search the internet for Toyota engine sludge). I would recommend Mobil 1 (this is FULL synthetic) and for viscosity I would recommend 5w-30 in the winter and 10w-30 in the summer. Your manual will verify the viscosity that I have mentioned. You must use good engine oil with this vehicle or else you will have an engine sludge problem and this could cost you a new engine. The RX300 is a wonderful vehicle and very reliable, but it requires some care that you must give it or else it will cost you a lot of money and maybe leave you stranded. For instance, change the oil regularly (no more than 4000 mile intervals) and also change the transmission fluid (no more than 60000 mile intervals). Search online for transmission failures in the RX300 - you'll find that the people who did not get a transmission flush were very sorry!!

Transmission!


Transmission problems in the RX300 are common for those who never flush the transmission fluid. I would strongly urge you to quit driving your RX300 and get it to a dealership where they can flush the transmission fluid. There is no transmission fluid filter (per say) but there is a "screen" inside the transmission that needs to be flushed out (this serves as the filter). Pull out your dipstick for the transmission and smell the transmission fluid - does it smell burned? I hope not, but regardless, take it to a dealership and get the tranny flushed and see if that makes a difference. Also, continue to flush the transmission every 60,000 miles at most! Lexus says that you do not need to flush the transmission, but I think you do. I have a 2001 Lexus RX300 and I have had no problems with the tranny and I've flushed it at 60,000 miles and then again at 115,000 miles. I now have just a little over 120,000 on it. It's a good running vehicle but you need to care for it!

Jim,

I would just check the wiring going to the sensor on the washer fluid bottle. There could be a loose wire. Once the wire is checked. The only other option is to change out the washer bottle . The sensor is not sold seperately.
