Hi! Have you checked the distributor rotor? This may cause a no spark too. If its good then the last resort is replacing the engine control module or the engine control unit. Hope this helps and have a good one!

Check coolant level in the overflow bottle.
Have you ever had the coolant system flushed and replaced?
Is the temperature indicator light on?
Any fluid leaks?
Check those as well.

Hello. Any car with 200K has reached it's life expectancy. I would not recommend this car as Lexus parts are often very pricey. Some head light lamps, for instance are $400.00 alone. Joe

Your alarm is keep your system from starting. When the alarm system fails, you have 1 of two choices, if it is a after market alarm then just disconnect the alarm, if it is a manufacture alarm then you will need to take it to a company to have then replace the alarm or disconnect it. Doing so yourself you can hurt your vehicle more then help it

I would inspect your wires at the starter. If you live up north then corrosion is bad, clean all wires going to starter. then clean wires to back of alternator. I seriously doubt that alternator is the problem, but if you remove it you can have it tested for free at most parts stores.

White smoke is either steam or coolant. Oil smoke is blue, fuel is black. The smoke is water or coolant boiling and then coming out the exhaust as vapor.

If the weather is cold, water will condense in the exhaust system after shutdown, then come out as steam on startup. This is OK. If you see the smoke after driving on the highway for an hour or it is an all-the-time event, you have a problem.

If you have a problem, most likely, at this age, it is a leaking head gasket. Possibly the cylinder head is cracked. Valve problems are possible but less likely. Keep track of how much coolant you add to keep it at the full mark. Obviously, this is expensive to fix.

The problem was bad/worn valve stem seals which allowed oil to seep into the cylinder heads when the engine wasn't running and burn off when the engine was started creating the white smoke. If it is valve stem seals, they are not too expensive to replace however I would suspect your mechanic will want to do a complete valve job which is a little more costly.

Hope thos help (remember comment and rated this).

I believe you just may be simply out of gas. if that is not the problem it could be a fuse, fuel pump relay or even your fuel pump itself. try that and if that dont work let me know.
