2000 Lexus RX300 Problems

The Check Engine Light may come on because a component of the oxygen sensor stops working. Replacement of the failed sensor should correct this concern.

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 Check Engine Light may illuminate because the mass air flow sensor sends incorrect information to the engine control computer. This can cause a loss of power on acceleration. A failed mass air flow sensor will require replacement.

Amazing vehicle. Purchased new in 2000 and have driven it for 11 years. I have 275,000 miles on it. Only major issue was a transmission at 218,000 miles.
