Lexus ES300 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
We had the oil changed in our car at an oil shop. Immediately after I got in the car, I noticed the strong smell of raw gas, but I figured that since the car was in the shop, it was from the shop.
Later, that day the smell got stronger so the next day, we took the car back to the shop. By the time we got there the gas smell was gone, but they looked over the car from top to bottom and couldn't find anything. For the next 2 days, the car ran fine and then that smell came back again! So, we took the car to another mechanic, but by the time we made it there, the smell was gone again.
Now, the smell is back better than ever. It literally smells like someone has spilled gasoline in the car. I noticed the smell is coming from under the hood and appears to be on the passenger side between the timing belt cover and the engine. We are taking it to the dealer in the morning, but quite frankly I'm scared to death because I have no idea how much they will want to fix it or even what it is.
There are no visible leaks (we park in a garage so we would see a gas leak). The car still drives the same and the exhaust is clean smelling. Help!!!
I replaced bulbs a while back, outside lens is fairly clear...the inner "dome like" lens that bulbs inserts into is cloudy. My left light puts out very little light. Is the inner lens suppose to be cloudy (opaque) or how do you clean it?

I have a 2003 Lexus ES300 with 92,000 miles. I have a rear oil leak and plan on trying the Bar's Oil Additive before spending $2000 to have the Rear Main Seal repaired at the dealership. However, in the last few days, the car has lost acceleration from complete stops...just no pep. Never had a problem until now. No warning lights are coming on. The car starts right up, idles fine, just feels like it's hesitating. However, when it starts, a huge cloud of thick white smoke comes out the exhaust and then clears up. Could this problem be related to the oil leak or just coincidence? Any ideas?
How do you replace the license plate bulbs on the 2003 Lexus es300? It looks like they are way up in the trunk lid. I got two of the liner snaps near the latch off but don't know how to get more of the liner off without messing something up (I'm good at that :))

About (2) years ago, my power antenna gear (the one in the mast) became stripped. I removed the antenna assembly and replaced it with the rubber type. Due to continued poor reception, I wanted to install an original equipment one. ( dealer cost $500+ retail) I purchased (2) used assemblies that were working before their removal and tried them. No luck. I used the original wiring and its connections. I then, purchased an aftermarket assembly and it will not work either. I had a local shop replace some instrument lamps about a year ago. I was wondering if they could have unhooked something from the instrument panel, keeping the new antenna from working. All the new antenna needs is a chassis ground, permanent 12v and a wire from the radio switch. I purchased a complete write up on my car, in the past, with a schematic included. I have gone through the wiring in the trunk, however I need to remove the radio and check the wiring there. How is that accomplished ?
