Lexus RX300 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
My floor was wet and watering when raining recently found, it seems from winshird. Hhow can I fix this problem? Or I have to send to the dealer to repair this problem? Many hnaks
Transmission issue began about 2 wks ago on road trip (ie., car rapidly accelerated, gears wouldn't shift, and made slight squealing sound. Had it diagnosed & received codes P0770 & P765, I think. Moreover, I also received code P1135 but I believe that was for a O2 sensor, don't know if that's related. Anyways, the following day started car without problem but haven't tried to drive it since. In fact, I had car transported back home to be safe. Is it okay for me to try to add transmission fluid to see if this helps? Also what is the avg.cost of repair? I don't have a warranty so I'm trying to determine if the car's value is worth the cost of repair. In addition, I'm concerned if there will be more costly problems as a result of this major transmission issue. Please advise!!
And it won't go over 3000 rpm when I try to accelerate it just chokes out...will idel fine.. but hard to start
All calipers, pads and rotors are new and just put on. I jacked it up after driving it for a couple minutes and could barely turn the tires and all the rotors were really hot.
iwant change out the battery cables first ...the ones I bought have only one spot to make connections on each post ....but the Lexus 300 rx 1999 has two positive wire that are connected to two separate positive connections on the battery connect from the factory.....Question I join both Positives on the connector ....or do they need to be separted buy the type of battery connector that has the two connections?
I replaced the starter yesterday.
While on my first roadtrip, post rebuilt tranny, I could feel a slight hesitation in speed. It's almost like the car had a hiccup. There are no warning lights on, I had my fluids checked before I left. I'm slightly concerned because we have a 600 mike return journey home today and it's just myself and my mom.
I just purchased a 2000 Lexus rx300, it sat for close to a year, I put a new battery in it, it starts right up, idles like a new car, but when I went to drive it, if u give it gas it spits and sputters and won't go anywhere, let off the gas and it idles just fine.... Has anyone had a similar problem??? This is the first Lexus I've owned, it could be numerous things, I'm mechanically inclined but was hoping someone had similar problems and new the solution..... Any info would be greatly appreciated....
The audio is only working intermittently. It is getting power, and the fuses seem to be okay. The radio, cd, and tape players act like they work, but no sound comes out, not even crackles.
Also, possibly unrelated, but the back right door lock will not work with the power locks.
Any ideas on what what this might be, or how to fix it?
The locks on the SUV have to be locked manually. None of them will open or close with the automatic unlock/lock function on the key. The only lock that works correctly is the tailgate lock. I have looked on other forums and it seems this is a common occurrence with the 2000 RX 300.
On road loose metal nuts bolt sound. Shop said bolts loose. Noise still there I'm afraid to drive. What all is taken loose or off to replace rear valve cov gasket. Going back today do I just ask them to recheck everything they disconnected or took off? Help please someone who knows not from state of Mississippi. They were hush hush on the loose bolts. Felt like what else??? Please I would appreciate some helpful advice. They didn't do any ck for codes. I don't have over $900 again.
I drove to a gas station got gas then it wouldn't start. my Lexus has 125000 miles on it. I recently replaced both knock censors.
