The new timing belt jumped

no it is not. (late answer) is this a double post?

all timing belts jump,
1: every 60k miles for most. ever read the service list.
some top quality belts go bad at 100k miles. so.....????

Honda uses an "interference" engine design.
do not skip this service, or the whole engine can grenade !!!
honda quote, pasted.
However, since these engines utilize an interference design, it is highly recommended to at least inspect the timing belt at 60,000 mile (96,000 km) intervals. It is an even better idea to replace the belt at these intervals. On 1990-94 models, Honda recommends the timing belt to be replaced at 90,000 mile (144,000 km) intervals. On 1995 models, the recommended interval is 60,000 miles (96,000 km).end quote.

and if the last guy put in a POS china belt, well, you are hosed.
no name belts are junk, never ever use one,
BTW i run Gates belts.

Lexus rx330 headlight igniter

I think the ballast on this car is around $230.00 for two. Mercedes wanted 2,800.00 to fix my car it took me 2 hrs. to fix it with 304.00 worth of parts. you can go out side the dealer to someone who specializes in Lexus however if they said $2305 your still looking at around $1,800.00. if you are mechanically in cline get a Haynes book from Autozone or O'reilys do it yourself. Go to ebay you can get good price's for your ballast.

Tune up for a 2005 lexus RX 330

1. get oil and filter change every 8000 km by using good quality synthetic oil.
2. regularly change air filter especially if driving on dusty roads.
3. keep tires seasonally rotated and check tire pressure regularly.
4. Top up all fluids. Dirty fluids should be replaced.
5. keep an eye on brakes
I follow this PLUS the Owner`s manual on maintenance. It should help.

When accerating as I'm going up a hill, I hear a rattling noise and whisteling. I've had the car for two months and it just started today. I have a 1996 Honda Accord LX, I bought the car used.

If the car is well past 90,000 miles (144,000 km) you may have a worn timing belt. Clattering sounds are a warning sound that the timing belt is not controlling piston and valve movement correctly. Carbon build-up may be contributing to your symptoms, but the timing belt needs replacing urgently if it has not been replaced already in the lifetime of the car. Timing belt breakage results in serious damage to the engine. Repairing the damage usually means an expensive engine overhaul or engine replacement.

2005 Lexus RX330 HID ballast replacement, passenger side headlight. What is the removal procedure please?

I have a 2005 Lexus Rx330 with HID AFS headlight. My passenger side light went out. I thought the bulb burnt out, so I bought a new bulb. After replacing the new bulb, it happened exactly like my old bulb. It light up lightly and then total black out. What's wrong with it? I thought the ballast burnt. I called Lexus dealer and asked for the new ballast/transformer. Surprised me, they don't know what is it. They told me they only know the wiring harness and the socket, but not the ballast ??????? Could you tell me what do I need to replace?
