Question about Lexus GX 470

1 Answer

I have a lexus gx470 4 wheel drive. The vehicles sounds absolutely fine when not moving or when idling in place. When the vehicle starts to roll it and accelarate it makes a clicking noise (similar to the sound a cv joint makes when in need of rapair) but this noise is under the truck (not near the cvjoint). Sounds like it is in the crankshaft. The truck has 138,000 miles and has 4wheel drive that is never used.

    Have not had any recent maintanance done on the vehicle other than the typical oil changes etc. It seems that this sound may only occur when the truck is in 4wheel drive (i think)

On my 2007 explorer the brake engage when you put the car in drive and the rcs light comes on


Do you mean the RSC light ?
  • Roll stability control (RSC)/interactive vehicle dynamics (IVD)
  • Roll Stability Control (RSC)
    The roll stability control (RSC) system monitors the roll-rate sensor and existing stability assist sensors and calculates if the vehicle may be approaching a situation where rollover is probable. If such a situation exists, the RSC system applies preemptive action. When activated, the RSC system adjusts the brake torque at specific wheels in response to direct measurement of the vehicle roll motion. By adjusting brake torque, the system can reduce the cornering forces and, therefore, the total roll moment acting on the vehicle. Systems with RSC have an additional roll-rate sensor located within the sensor cluster and additional programming within the ABS module to help control the vehicle during sudden maneuvers.
    Information from the roll-rate sensor is fed into the ABS module. The computer uses information from the ABS wheel speed sensors, the throttle position sensor, the steering wheel angle, the steering wheel rate of change and a yaw rate sensor that measures the change in vehicle direction. If the computer determines from all these inputs that conditions exist for a potential roll over, the system applies one or more brakes and reduces engine torque to make the vehicle more stable.
    If the event is severe and the driver's foot is not on the brake, the brake pedal moves to apply higher brake forces. A whooshing sound can also be heard from under the instrument panel in an event this severe .
    I strongly suggest you have this vehicle towed to a ASE certified repair shop that knows this system !

    Can't get shifter into park


    sounds like the parking pawl in the transmission or the manual shift valve is sticking or the manual linkage in the trans is bent. youll have to have a technician drop the trans pan and observe these parts with an assistant shifting the lever in the car back and forth. If the PRNDL light for park is not lit, then the vehicle is not completely in park. You can start and vehicle with the lever in NEUTRAL to get you anywhere.

    Rolling back


    Have a fault code done to check the transmission for faults. Sometimes you will have to accelerate a bit as there is not always enough energy produced in the torque converter at idle to hold the car steady on an incline

    Sounds as if forward driving gears are shot. Different gears make vehicle move in reverse. I would ask if transmission fluid level when checked is in the operation range or full.

    You must have the dealer scan the system with a special tool to see what is causing this unwanted activation of the vehicle stability control system.

    My 2008 Kia Sorento is stuck in four wheel drive. How do I fix it? Thanks, Bill


    I assume that the vehicle has a rotating knob on the left side of the dash for four wheel drive. It may have been put into 4 low by mistake. To get it out, start the vehicle and put it in drive, select 4 low on the 4 wheel drive selector, take your foot off the brake and get the vehicle rolling at a walking pace (1-2 m.p.h.) then move the selector to 4 high, stop the vehicle and move selector to 2 high.

    2000 Rodeo has intermittenly starting problems


    It sounds as if your neutral safety start switch may be failing. This switch only allows for the safe start of an engine when the automatic transmission is in either park or neutral. It seems when you move around the gear selector you get it back to a spot where the switch allows the engine to start. Next time this happens while in park, try wiggling around the gear selector or place your foot on the brake (so you don't roll away) and place the transmission in to neutral. If it fires up you know to either adjust or replace the switch for the park position.

    I hope this might have helped,
    Tom
