Run fault codes and check for cam/crank position sensors. Check engine immobiliser . Check that the cam shaft is turning (broken timing belt)

It has 150000 miles on it ,it has power but wont start

If the engine has power but will not turn over it has electrical or mechanical problems. It can be something simple like corrosion on your battery posts or something really bad like a blown engine. If it will turn over then you start looking at other things. All engines require air, fuel adequate power and mechanical and electrical function to start. Check each of these requirements carefully . . it has to be one of them

Air bag suspension system wont inflate on 1992 lexus ls 400

The first thing to check would be the compressor, check all fuses and see if compressor is running.

i can tell you that most air bag systems develop a leak in the bags and the problem is not fixed inturn the air compressor runs so much to fill leaking bags that it over heats and destroys the compressor. most of the time the compressor fuse will blow, so check fuses first and then compressor. I have never seen a 1992 lexus with air bags.

1992 lexus ls400 wants to start wont crankover would it be a ignition problem

Check battery first........connectiions at battery and under vehicle at starter......You need a testlight
to check for power at starter when you try to start it....(2 man operation).....If you dont have power at starter when turning switch more than likely switch or relay is bad....More than likely have a faulty starter / battery / or bad connection

I have a 1992 Lexus ES300 that wont start. I think the heads are blown. Can I just replace the heads or do I need a whole new motor? It overheated and the radiator hose busted and it hasnt started since....

Yes, you could replace just the heads, bu i don't think they are the problem - it's much more likely that the head gaskets have failed , they are the ones that you should replace first.

The problem could be the contacts in the solenoid. The starters are not that expensive but to getting to it is very extensive. It is under the intake manifold. I had been having problems with my ls 400 (1990 with 275K miles) engaging the for quit some time and milked it out as long as I could.

Change air filter and TPS (throttle position sensor). It is subject to Physical wear. (1992, Age). A dirty air filter can put the MAF sensor out of range.
