When the light comes on, take it to a large auto parts like Autozone etc. These guys will hook up their hand held analyzer and read a code, then do a printout with what it means. Easy to do and it is free.

Check engine light comes on and then the temperature gauge goes up to hot


Mine did it too.... The problem is the Engine Power Relay.

The Engine Power Relay is in the relay box in the engine compartment. Aftermarket relay is cheap, but the original Ssangyong part will last many years longer.

Hope this helps.

The oil light comes on at times and goes off as the rpms go up. What can be done about the light?


Maybe your engine is idling too slowly, If the revs are below say 700rpm the low pressure warning light could come on especially when the engine is hot.. If the idle speed is ok try a heavier grade of oil in the engine. Next try a new oil pressure sensor. It's got to be one of these things. Check the engine running temperature . An over-hot engine will cause the oil light to come on too.

Transmission won't go into overdrive when engine is hot


Lexus's have a complicated system of electronics that control the function of the transmission.Under normal operating conditions the transmission is controlled by the ecu and by a secondary system called a drivetrain control module. usually when a fault occurs it sends a code to the ecu and the check engine light comes on.
If this light does not come on then typically the electronic modulator is at fault and needs to be replaced.
If the check engine light comes on when the vehicle is hot i need this code to guide u further for the repair.
If u want to attempt the repair , be wary. its messy and takes time to do to do it right.

Engine runs really hot, and engine light comes on while in D4


I had the same problems with my Acura Legend. On the problem with the running hot and the idling up and down, your cooling system is low. Fill your cooling system start it up and look for leaks, steam, or etc. repair and refill and your problem should be cured if the cooling system is full. At this time i'm working on the other problem. Good Luck
