2000 Lexus GS300 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
2000 Lexus GS300. After 2 new tires put on the rear with the 2 fronts having decent tread left on them (About 30-35% on them) my car feels like its floating while on the highway. Hard to explain but it feels like there's no grip to the road with the whole car but especially with the steering, she sways a lot on highway and can easily be over corrected. ( over steered, try to straighten out after being over to far). I did research on the tires after realizing this problem. There are Hercules all season. I forget the numbers but shouldn't matter. Anyone heard of this just because a tire change. It also pulls hard to the right. HELP ME

The noises usually starts a couple minutes after the car is started. At first it was only at low speeds but now it's at higher speeds also. Only happens when i accelerate, but there is also a clunking noise like something is loose when i go over speed bumps or bumpy roads. I took it in to the mechanic and he said it was the control arms, which he replaced, and when that didn't fix it he said it was pinging due to bad gas. I've put 5 tanks of premium gas in and i used an engine cleaner but the problem persists. It's been happening for about 3 months.
The clock also went out too. I had the fuses checked and I was told they are all fine. what else could be wrong? Especially if it was working fine. The
My Lexus GS300 overheated while my friend who
I let borrow my car for 3 months was driving it & needless to say my friend doesn't know much about vehicles. So it has an automatic shut off when it overheats so he let it cool off then added 1 gallon of water let it cool off completely the rest of the way. He didn't know that once you start the car that the valve opens and you have to add more water so without doing that he started driving down the road again made it about 2 miles and it overheated again and now wont crank. A friend of mine's uncle is a mechanic and checked it out for me free of charge before I had it towed into a mechanic shop and let know that yes it is a blown head gasket. I have also been told I'm probably better off just replacing the engine.
