1998 Lexus ES300 ProblemsDebris in Idle Air Control Valve May Cause Engine Problems
Debris can get into the idle air control valve. This will restrict the air flow into the engine, causing idle speed and/or stalling when cold. The valve can be cleaned or replaced to correct this concern.
On higher mileage vehicles, an engine misfire may develop and/or the Check Engine Light may illuminate due to a failed ignition coil. It is not uncommon to replace all the coils when the first one fails in order to prevent return trips to the repair shop.
1998 Lexus ES300 QuestionsDiagnostic check done. Mechanic said it could not scan at all - no codes (1 answer)
Daughters car has 160,000 miles. Engine light has been on for awhile, both traction light and another one of a car and its lights are lit up. System has had no problems up until now
this started two days ago.Any time the car runs on rough surface I hear this unusual noise from the front passenger side wheel as if something is loose.
I got into my car this morning, I put the key in and turned it to start the car but the engine didn't turn on but it made a clicking sound, the odometer and other needles went back and forth, and the dash symbols lit up but nothing else.
