Question about 2002 Lexus ES 300

1 Answer

I replaced the battery on my '03 Lexus ES300 and now the engine will start but won't remain on unless I keep the gas pedal down about half way. If I let go of the gas pedal the engine will stop.

Hopefully,you can let it relearn itself.You will most likely have to try and drive it,the longer it runs,it will relearn,but if it does not,the dealer,will have to reprogram the computer.

Engine revs but no acceleration


Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. Or one of the CV joints is detached from the gear box. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

2003 lexus es300 won't start... radio lights and windows work. Tried a jump start, still doesnt work...


Are you saying the engine cranks but won't start, or the engine won't crank ?
If the engine does not crank, you would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch as well as the ground connections.

My efi fuse keeps blowing everytime i try to start my car


It is not a solution, but i HAVE THE SAME ISSUE ON MY 1996 lEXUS es300. My engine just shut down while I was driving, and would not turn on unless I replaced the fuse. Every time it shutdown, it was when there was someone on the passenger seat. Did yours die when there was someone on the passenger seat?

What happens when timing belt breaks on a 1996 lexus es300


Hi Robert,

When a timing belt breaks, the engine will stop (never happens unless its running). When you try to restart it:
  1. The engine will turnover with what will seem like extra energy (faster, easier than normal)
  2. The crankshaft and pistons continue as they always have
  3. The cam shaft no longer turns at all
  4. As a result, the valves no longer open and close. Instead they remain in the position dictated by where the camshaft came to rest.
  5. As a result, there will be no compression in 75% of your cylinders (without compression, the engine cranks faster when you try to start it, no resistance).
  6. Those with compression will not have a Fuel air mix as it cant get in through closed valves.
  7. There is the possibility with continued cranking that a piston can collide with an extended open valve causing further damage.
  8. Other symptoms include, gas smell, backfires through air intake and exhaust, the 'almost start', lots of battery power.
I believe this answers your question.

Best regards and good luck,

Mike
