Question about 2006 Lexus GS

2 Answers

Is my Lexus a piece of junk? I have a 2006 Lexus GS 300. It needs aligning every time I get the oil changed! After 18000 miles I need a new set of tires. The wires are showing. Lexus is doing nothing about it and the car is driven approximately 200 miles a week all highway.

Yes your car is a piece of junk. Sorry, not trying to be rude but it's a lemon as well as every single 2006 gs300. Not because the front end alignment issue but because the engine is garbage. If you haven't had the $6k piston ect. Engine rebuild you will soon, and if you have had it done sooner or later you're gonna have to have it done again and by now the extended warranty for that problem is up or almost up on your car. Bottom line the engine is junk and lexus doesn't stand by their product.

A car's front end alignment should last several hundred thousand miles.

Getting it adjusted every 50K is a good idea, but is not needed yet by that point, in most cases.

Something is not right with your car.

How do I reset my timing on a 2001 lexus gs 300?

You must go back and remove the timing belt to re-align the marks for the cam and crank. There is no other way to adjust.

Why is my 2006 lexus gs 300 is burning oil

Every single 2006 gs300 will have this problem, and even after it has been "fixed" it's going to happen again due to the intake valves not being washed by incoming fuel. The design of the engine is a poor design and shouldn't have never been put out to production and sold to anybody. Lexus extended the warranty for this problem for 9 years and will not do a single thing for you if you're even one day out of the 9 years. Every single 06 gs300 should have been replaced with a completely different car under the lemon law the moment they realized the problem, but to save the money lexus just swept it under the rug leaving hundreds of thousands of their customers with a lemon.

We have a 2006 Lexus GS 300. (41,000) miles. We have an appointment Monday with Lexus for the knocking noise coming from the engine. Its so bad when your at a red light it sounds like a diesel truck. Now...

Check your oil. If it is milky/tannish, then all signs point to the possibility of a cracked engine block. I hope not. That would mean a new or rebuilt engine and probably a few thousand$$$. Hope it's something else, friend.

I have a 2006 GS 300 lexus that I can't get oil in it, it is not leaking where is it going? It has 130 K miles, Lexus says it need a engine. I bought it brand new and Lexus did all the services. Lexus...

There are no known issues with any LEXUS manufactured after '02 that would cause this issue by default. If you are burning oil, and its not leaking out, then one of two things is happening. 1. Its getting into your coolant system. (in this case, check your coolant system for a oil layer. TO FIX THIS you mill have to replace the block / i.e. get a new engine if you want it to last.) 2. Its getting into your valve chamber and burning with the fuel. (in this case, a gap has formed within the valve system letting in oil and can be identified by white smoke from the exhaust. TO FIX THIS you must replace head gasket and rings)

When does the timing belt need to be replaced on a 2000 GS 300 with 55,000. Is it miles or years?

Most manufactures recommend changing the Timing belt at around 60,000 miles / 100,000 Km or 7 years, whichever comes first. They have been known to last a lot longer than that but it is cheaper to have it replaced than to risk critical and expensive engine damage if it breaks.

How to change the maintenance light in a 2006 GS 300


I know you have the solution by now by Im submitting this post anyway.

To reset the oil maintence:

Have the car in a secure location with the engine off

1. Press the ingition button once, do not have your foot on the break pedal
2. Make sure you have the instrument cluster (panel on left hand side below gauges) open
3. The button marked "reset" depress it for 30 seconds and the "oil maintenance," should be reset.

Hope that helps.
