Hello my guages is not working properly.

busted timing belt

I have had a problem starting my hybrid about three times now. When I turn the key the "ready light" does not come on. I have taken the key out to try it again and nothing happens. After several attempts it may start or I give up and come back to it later it starts no problem. I have taken it the dealer and they can find nothing wrong of course. I have also had trouble with the key physically turning in the switch. Are the two related and if so, why didn't the dealer put two and two together. Please help!

passenger side glass retainer is broken how much it will cost , as i have been advice it come attached with glass

I only have 84k miles on it. I have had it for 10 yrs now and have had all service checks, oil changed. I don't know if I should put this money into it or not? My mechanic said around 4k in repairs and he couldn't do the heat and a/c and bring to dealer. If I put this in, is the tranny going to go?

When I am driving occasionally I hear a quick whistling sound--can't figure out what; doesn't seem to be related to any particular activity.

compresser runs all the time, can not turn off with switch.

air condition runs all the time, can not turn it off with switch.

Passenger side brake light shuts off when brake pedal stepped on. Double filament bulb is okay as checked on the driver side light lamp housing.

Got too close to a curb and pulled out one of the clamps that hold the bottom outside door moldings, to the door. I see that I need to remove the whole thing to get it back on, but would like the know how, so that I do not do more damage than good.

Where can I find the switch that controls the trunk light

The shifter is not locking into place. If you have your hand on the shifter while driving or driveway with your foot on the brake the shifter will slip easily into neutral but not reverse. What is this? hoping it is not related to transmision.

Problem started a few months ago and has gotten very consistent now. After driving for as little as 30 minutes, upon restart (could be minutes afterwards up to an hour), idle speed will be so low that it dies almost immediately or upon putting into reverse or drive, unless constant throttle is applied to keep it alive. If revved up to 2000 Rpm while throttle is applied idle speed corrects to proper sustainable speed and I'm able to drive off.

I have a 1999 Lexus ES300 with trouble codes of 1349, 0301, 0303, and 0305. I would like to inspect the cam adjust solenoids for any clogged orifices. I would like to troubleshoot the VVT circuit but my shop manual does not include the topic. Could you give me some tips on inspecting and troubleshooting the circuit and checking out the solenoids? Also, please help me identify them and location for the pair of them. Thanks

Has anyone have any idea what is would cost to replace Hood Support Strut Shock (pair) for my 96 Lexus ES300?

Just recently I bought 96 Lexus ES300 and found out as I was driving, that A/C and front & rear defogger works perfectly. However, the heater would not work even when I set the temperature control to Max Hot or above 80 degrees. Only the cold air comes out. What could possibly be wrong with this?

I was driving with bluetooth on suddenly started to click loudly like relay and sound system doesn't work. the clicking sound is fixed regardless I adjust volume. does anyone have any clue what it could be? Thank you in advance.

My check engine light and TracOff lights are on. My codes are P1349, P0300, P0301, P0303, and P0305. My car has 122K miles; and I have just replaced all three oxygen sensors. The car drove beautifully for 2-3 miles after I replaced the sensors; then the lights came back on; and the car idles roughly, misses, and lacks power. I have seen answers here which say that the cause(s) could be failed ignition coil(s); failed oil control valve, or failed mass air flow sensor. I would like to know how to test these components, and in what order, to determine the cause of the actual problem. Thanks.
