Question about 1990 Lexus LS 400
Although the LS 400 is a great car, the engineering could have been a little more "consumer oriented," when it comes to repairs.
I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the starter is in the middle of the engine, underneath the intake manifold. This means you must remove the negative battery cable, empty the coolant, remove the air intake assembly, the throttle body, all of the vacuum lines, hoses etc. and then the intake manifold. The starter is located under the intake.
If you are a "back yard" mechanic, you can do this yourself. It's not very dificult, just extremely tedious. It also doesn't require any special tools, just the basics, such as a metric ratchet set and open end wrenches. It would take a pro about 5 hours.
