Question about 2005 Lexus Ls 430
your automatic transmission may be extremely low on fluid. check the automatic transmission fluid. go get three quarts at auto parts store type dextron II or equivalent.. make sure you get the right type. open the hood, start looking for the transmission fluid dipstick that it shows in the owners manual. if not it may be listed on the dipstick in the engine compartment. start the car set parking brake and check the dipstick with the car running. pull the dipstick out and wipe it off , replace, take it back out and look at the end of the dipstick. there should be fluid on the dipstick and it should be in between or right at the top line. the tranny fluid goes right in that dipstick hole you pulled the dipstick out of it takes a special funnel, theyre usually red, you can pick that up at the auto parts store too, tell them you need a funnel that will fill up the tranny fluid with a tiny end. theyll know. If theres no fluid showing on the dipstick you can safely add one quart of fluid and then let it run a minute and check fluid again. now fill in smaller increments at a time (1/2 cup) untill the fluid shows in between the lines on the dipstick. put a piece of cardboard under the engine overnight to see if its leaking and where. it may need a new gasket or the tranny cooler lines are leaking, study whats loose on the lines or get a haynes or chilton manual and put a new tranny pan gasket on it. its not too hard , just takes time and patience. if theres tranny fluid already in the car I suggest taking it in to be put on a computer for further diagnosis, but this may get you going.
