2000 Lexus ES300 Problems

Check Engine Light Due to Failed EVAP Purge Control Valve

Intermittent failure of a purge control valve in the evaporative emission system can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. A failed valve should be replaced to correct this problem.

 

Ignition Coil May Fail After 100,000 Miles

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.

Debris 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.

The 2000 ES 300 handles and runs quite well, almost like a 3-series BMW.

Rubber boot manufacturers should invent rubber boots that can be replaced without having to dislodge an entire drive shaft assembly or ball joint.
I have a 2000 Lexus ES300. My dad handed it down to me as a graduation gift and i've had this car for 3 yrs now and boy this thing runs AMAZING and has never been in the shop except regular maintaince like timing belt, etc. It currently has 108k on it and still has a lot of life in it! Lexus 4LIFE!
