How do I check the oil level of the Auto. Trans. of a Lexus RX 350?

I had been having problems with my battery for a couple of weeks. I would get jumped off, go fine until I stopped and then have to get jumped off again. The last time this happened. I bought and installed a battery on sunday. it ran fine until thursday afternoon...2 batteries later and 3 battery cables (it kept melting my battery cables)..now I can't even get jumped off (until last night) now the car starts fine however, a new problem arises...I have no dash lights (even though the fuses are fine), no tail or brake lights...the windows will not roll down and no interior lights even though the car starts fine now. I was going to pull it in the driveway last night after getting it to start...now the interior lights come on but when I crank the car all the other lights still the same, out, except for interior and headlights...even worse, the gear shift will not move out of park now....I tried turning the wheel, etc....any ideas
?

When is the timing belt supposed to be replaced?

I added water to the battery before discovering in the manual that you are not supposed to add water to the battery. Will this damage it? A light had been left on in the car which drained the battery originally, but charged it up, saw water was low in battery , so added it. What happens if there is too much water in the battery?

The cel came on on my lexus, and shows a code 13. I have since replaced the timing belt. It is timed correctly. The cam sensors both check out good on a resistance check. The car runs perfectly, with no symptoms at all. I have reset the computer, but can not get rid of the dtc 13 code. Anyone else have this situation?

My car will start only if my foot is on the gas pedal to keep the RPMs up. Once my foot is taken off the gas pedal, the RPMs will go all the way down and the vehichle shuts off. What can I do to possibly fix it....I am not mechanically savvy, but can try before I spend alot $$$ on repairs.

Bought ls460 in December 10, and engine ran very quietly, not tapping, smooth and quiet. Had Valve Spring Replacement (per recall) performed at Northside Lexus. Now when car idles it has a noticeable clatter sound that accelerates when the rpms increase. One salesman said "turn your radio up." It is very frustrating in that this is an expensive car...supposedly the best Lexus makes.
Any thoughts?

I have a 1993 Lexus LS400. It is only getting around 10 miles per gallon and we smell unburned or raw gas. It also has really bad acceleration. It runs good when it is up to speed but it takes forever getting there. Any ideas?

The problem occurs while driving (slow or fast speeds), and is especially noticeable when going over bumps or uneven pavement. The noise is in the rear of the cabin area and it is non-stop and sounds like as crackle or something rubbing together. I have torn apart the ceiling and rear side panels to check for loose wiring, etc. and also tightened up the housing for the interior "third" brake light but the noise still continues. It doesn't sound like a brake problem or wheel problem but I cannot locate the origin. Please help.
