    I think 90,000 miles recommended by Lexus is where the car operate Minisota/Houston,TX etc... If the car operate in southern CA which is almost no rain and temperature usually 50 to 75 degree. The timing belt ca last at least 150,000. You can check the water pump/alternator/air condition belts. If those belt wore out badly or it had been replaced some time ago. It time to replace timing belt.
    I am not an expert on this, but this is comon sense. Timing belt is completely seal from dirt and oil so it will last for long time, beside when a manufacture recommended replacement, you can add about 30% more life out of it, Like southern CA, I think it will last for 200,000 miles easy.

Its recommended to all Toyota/Lexus V-6&V-8s Engines 99-up Engine types: 1MZ/2MZ/3MZ-FE+RZ motors (90K serv), anywhere, hot, cold, wintery, tropical....NOTE: waterpumps on these vehicles are built with plastic fins which wear faster than steel units. Wear and tear may be induced by foreign objects (oil, dust, dirt etc.), but 90% of the wear comes from rotational inertia, cam gear contacts, engine speed. Also cam and crank seals leak naturally and usually start around 100K, which is the reason toyota/Lexus recommends after the 1st 90k service it becomes 60K intervals.

I have a 2004 Lexus Es 330 and the maintenance req light is on it has 51,540 miles


This should be reset when the oil is changed [ you may be due for service ]. to reset make sure the odometer is set on total miles, make sure the key is off, push on the reset button, turn on igntion key keeping your finger on the button- the mileage numbers will be replaced by a groupe of dashes, they will go out from left to right. Once all are out you should hear a chime- it's reset.

What are the steps to replace the water pump on 1996 lexus es300


Hi, you will need some special tool like : External torx (star)socket, pully and regular tool (# 10,12,14 etc..metric) to change the water pump. First, you need to clear the room for the job because such as Two belts -(alternator,air cond., pump ect and pully) need to disconnected and take out the plastic cover, tire e.t.c. There are about ten bolts. The water pump is inside the plastic cover which turns by the timing belt. I strongly recomment to change the timing belt at the same time ($30.00-timing belt- It last about 80000-90,000 miles). Remember to mark the timing gear carefully when you take the timing belt out. This will help you put the timing belt back in the right degree for the engine perform. Water pump can only replace after the timing belt is disconnected.
Take care

Lexus ES 330 2004 At what mileage does the radiator need to be serviced? Also, does it have an internal timing chain that needs to be serviced?


the coolant needs to be serviced @ 60k according to lexus reccomendation. theres a timing belt that needs to be changed @ 90k miles. I usually just change the coolant with the timing belt because you have to take the water pump off anyway and replace the engine coolant.
