These two tests alone will definitively tell you if you have a leak or other engine problem, where it is. Why can I not find these tests available at most mechanic shops or sites, including

The remote controlled pivot of the outside rear view mirror still works.

It worked when I bought the car 2 months ago (89k miles). All of a sudden liftgate switch just stopped working?

Check engine light came on. Diagnostic code P0420

It does not want to shift gears

Missing badly when it's reved@2000 rpm and shut down when I remove my foot from the gas pedal

The starter is mounted on the transmission and has a fire wall right next to it. How can I remove that.

Lexus RX 350

While in park with the emergency brake down the car sounds fine when u crank it up an it's running. When u release the emergency brake while in park it rolls backwards and the regular brakes want stop it either. When I shift to drive and try to accelerate it want go forward; it rolls backwards & the regular brakes want stop it. While in drive it's making a loud clunking straining grinding scraping like noise from under the hood. Noise coming from passenger side, I think? Nothing appears wrong from under the car. VCS, traction, check engine light all on. Prior to all this happening, the oil change indicator had been on. This just happened while I was driving home. Left car parked. Car will not drive forward at all, just keep rolling backards except when the emergency brake is down and then the noise goes away too. Please help me! What can be wrong? What is the repair cost

When the emergency brake is released it rolls backwards; also while in drive and trying to accelerate too. While in drive engine making a loud scraping/clucking/grinding noise. Please help me!!

What years interchange with 2000 Lexus gs300

no check engine light. trac light come on at times an goes out for awhile when i turn the engine off and back on.

My PCV has not been changed in 50,000 miles.

recommendations from lexus: repair transfer assembly, power steering pressure hose and tube; and repair coolant valley pan. Other than oil leak these are only recommendations and I have no indication that anything is wrong with my RX330 except the oil leak. Do these need to be done or are they just a way for lexus to gain repair work.

The tire seems to get blisters bumps and bubbles on the outer side of the tread on the front end driver side tire it appears to be leaning in at the very top I guess that would be a toe in our camber out of the out of alignment but the popping sound still makes no sense

Had lost key but got another 1 made by locksmith

my car runs great when outside temp is below 40 degrees

Back passenger tire

only when car is cold ( first starting out my day) Then it's fine!

I have 155600 miles - has been an awesome vehicle to date.
A nationally chained repair shop recommends: (1) valve cover gaskets leaking needs replaced at $527. (2)transmission pan gasket leaking needs replaced $327. However, the
independent Toyota/Lexus shop recommends (1) trans flush $130 (2) T-belt sticker $249 (3) spark plugs $186 (4) water leak and timing belt $610 (5) power steering line leak $655.

Why does the national repair shop not bring up the water pump leak? Why does the Lexus shop only mention trans flush where the national shop say trans pan gasket leak replacement?


The window does work with the control of the button on the rear passenger door. The window will not work via the driver door control panel.

I spooned out as much as I could, but the next day the computer detected it. I'm being told by Lexus that I must replace all parts in the system ( $ 9,000). This was done about 4 days age.

I need to replace my ignition sensor and I have another car for parts
