A/c light flashes and no cold air. every time I take it in to shop it works. Cold air seems to fail after heavy rains and extremely humid condition's. Please tell me there is a relay or something besides the control head itself.

When I bought the car few months ago the car had a bad shake to it when you was going 50 miles and got better the higher speed. Come to find out from hooking it up to a computer it was a misfire. Changed the spark plugs( they had the wrong ones in) and the oil. Now it seems to doing a different shake.

Was driving mr car 1997 Lexus Es 300 yesterday turnd a corner and the car died I mean everything was on but I could't accerlerate, I noticed there was oil under the car when it was towed..please help

I was told the car has a seal that is leaking. It is no worse than when the car was checked the last time, and is not causing any problems. Was told it doesn't need to be replaced now, that the leaks are slow to get any worse and to get it checked in 1 year. Should I follow their advise or have it done soon?

I have 97 es300 Lexus and the other day my a/c control lost all power. After investigation I found that the fuse under the steering wheel marked heater 10 amp was blown. I replaced it and got power, for about 5 seconds before it blew agian. So I tried another, and another the same thing. I tried putting a 30 amp fuse to see what would happen, so now the power stays and it's blowing air but my a/c light is flashing and no cold air. I think maybe there's a short but not sure. Has this happened to anyone, or does anyone have suggestion's?

I think its stuck on a small eyeglass cleaning cloth I put in the ashtray. Help!

how much do i need to know to replace valve cover gaskets on my lexus es 300, is there a video i can watch?

Dealership replaced the VSV which did absolutely NO good. Feels like it wants to quit at times while driving. Doesn't do it all the time -- just sometimes but can be very bad. Mechanics are stumped. Had suggestion from friend that it may be the Ilde Air Control Valve. Any suggestions? Dealer is bringing in a "master mechanic" - don't want to pay "master" bucks. thx

MY 1997 LEXUS OVER HEATS. THE PROBLEM IS ONLY CORRECTED WHEN I DRAIN AND REPLACE THE COOLANT

Would a P0135 Code (O2 Sensor issue) have any thing to do with the engine's temperature?

While the car idles, the temperature gauge goes way up, to the point of indicating overheating although I have yet to see it overheat. As soon as I start driving, the gauge returns to the "middle/normal" range. Any ideas?
