I'd say for you to replace the fuel filter. It should only cost $20. I'm about to do that right now because I'm having similar problems. I've had that problem on my previous car and it went away after I replaced the fuel filter.

What does the MIL code "PO 320" mean, please?


code p0320 refers to cam shaft position (CKP) sensor/engine speed (RPM) sensor--circuit malfunction=== causes --wiring--CKP/RPM sensor ---ECM
because the engine runs ok until it is on cruise control I would be investigating the RPM sensor for a fault
The cruise control takes its control from the RPM sensor and if that circuit is interminable the the cruise control doesn't know what rpms to maintain.

1997 subaru outback make clicking noise on in reverse. Also, sometimes when the car is turned off, the car lurches a bit


does it click while reversing straight or while turning? Sounds like a stick shift. Lunging probably due to e-brake needing adjustment(if stick shift). If your car only clicks while turning in reverse you need new front axles and can probably drive that way for a while

RPM near 3000 on my 1999 Lexus RX300


What is your speed at 3k rpm? What rpm would you estimate was previously 'normal' for highway cruising? If your Lexus is auto trans, it could be two things, it's either not shifting into the highest gear, or it's possibly slipping in gear (although I would think that would cause the rpms to fluctuate, not stay at a steady 3k). If it's a stick shift, again, it could be clutch slippage, but my choice from your description would be not shifting into the highest gear. Bring it up to highway speed slowly, counting how many shifts it makes, I.m guessing it's a 5 speed auto, but I'm not sure about that.

Highway driving problem. City driving ok.


If you have been to three shops,I'll assume that all the basics have been covered. Did anyone check computer stored codes? What did they see? If you are going to try to fix it yourself, you will need to get a manual and check each and every component, one by one. Also, outside of the realm of computer stuff, check converter to make sure its not partially plugged. At low rpm city driving it may be flowing just enough to get by on. Also check that fuel is clean and has no water in it.

When accelerating from a stop, car lurches when shifting gears


On a lot of vehicles there is a transmission speed sensor that receives data that tells it how fast the car is going and shifts accordingly. If this sensor is bad the transmission can't function properly. I would have this checked, they are not that terribly expensive, and not that hard to change on most vehicles. Hope this helps.

Engine Lurching in Cold Weather on Highway


I recommend a trans fluid and filter change first. It definately sounds like the problem is in the trans. If it was any sort of engine component you would have had a check engine light on.
