2006 Lexus GS300 Problems

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to an O2 sensor heater fault. Most commonly the affected O2 sensor will need to be replaced to correct this concern.

Suspension & Steering -- hohoho1461 and 6 others

I noticed the noise level has increased significantly while adjusting seating/driving position. Also the steering occasionally became heavy while making turns.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

A squeak type noise may be noted from one or both front seats. Squeaks can be caused by contact between the seat track locating pins and the vehicle floor pan. Our technicians tell us the repair involves removing some of the seat locating pins.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

All wheel drive models may develop a creaking type noise from the front suspension when driving over uneven road surfaces. Our technicians tell us revised front sway bar bushings are available which may correct this concern.

Engine, January 26, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The fuel pressure sensor monitors fuel pressure for optimum engine performance and emission controls. Lexus has found that some of these sensors can loosen from the fuel line, which may cause the sealing gasket to leak fuel. To prevent this from occurring in the future, your Lexus dealer will ensure that these sensors are properly fastened. No schedule of owner notification is available at this time.
