Question about 2008 Lexus Rx 350

1 Answer

Car sat in parking lot for 3 days, with a lot of rain. Upon start up Check Engine & VSC began to flash. Car ran normally for 2 miles. Pulled over shut down car, waited 10 seconds re-started engine with same indications. Drove 25 miles at highway speeds, transmission operated normally, electronic throttle operated normal and responsive. Any ideas before I take it to the dealership and have it checked for fault codes?

It likely had water on the ignition system. The check engine light will flash for misfire. The VSC light is on just because the check engine light is on. You likely have it dried out now and its fine. You just need to clear the codes. Autozone will do this for free.

Truck will start but engine dies and service engine soon light comes on/truck was idleing fine for 10 minutes then began to hesitate then shut off when first happened


When the engine dies the Check eng light is supposed to come on. You need to do a fault code test on the OBD2 engine control module.

You never leave a car running, as it will
overheat the Exhaust Converter
When you run out of fuel, you sometimes
ruin the Fuel Pump
It depends on gas to lubricate it,as strange as it sounds
Check fuel pressure & volume at the motor with a gauge

Check engine light on


I hope you havn't power cleaned the engine at any stage,,,,,, Check for moisture or even water in the spark plug wells . The HT leads should be tight ,clean , dry and not overlapping ie a HT lead seperator should be able to keep leads from touching and a possible mis fire.
