Question about 2002 Lexus IS 300

1 Answer

I have a 2001 IS 300 with 160,000 mi. I was having trouble starting the car in the morning where it would take 2 or 3 tries to get it to turn over. It is in a garage in California, so not in extreme cold. I got a new battery and it was fine for about 4 days. Also, once the car starts it is fine for the day. This morning it again would not start until I tried 4 or 5 times. The starter just made a steady sound no clicking, and all the check lights were on. I did pump the gas on this morning try. It finally started, but very reluctantly, and then it was fine during the day with a number of starts. ???? This car has been very reliable with hardly any problems. I give it regular maintenance.

Try if this works\improves your situation;

turn the key to ON but don't crank, let it sit for 2 seconds. Do this 2-3 times, then put it in the ON position, wait 2 seconds then crank. As for what it is, could be spark plugs, fuel pump\line issue, etc..

89 dakota was sputtering. Wife put gas in it (it was low) and got home fine (10 mi.). started up this morn. and it died after .25 mi. Got it started and got it home. pump or relay?


Did it run out of gas? could be fuel filter.Otherwise turn the key to the run position and you should hear the fuel pump (zzzzzzzzzzzzz),you may only hear it for a couple of seconds, turn the key off and back to run to hear it again.If you don't hear it I would suspect fuel pump,

Won't start in the morning


It might need a good tune up and the computer scanned as well to see if it hasn't got any cold start trouble code stored in the memory.
