Lexus RX300 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
My car doesn't go over 40 mph. It feels like it is really bogged down. It drains gas a lot quicker than it should (it took me a whole tank to drive 200 miles)
if I unplug the vacuum hose it runs by itself.
The weather was cool I turn air condition to hot, after turning back to max cool the air condition does not cool again

It also seams to go into a antiskid mode and the car jerks and then straightens back up. No codes found. It only does it when you turn a corner. I also have arattle in the rear of the car when you hit a bump. I put it on a rack and see nothing wrong or shinney where it might be hitting. Are the struts bad. 100,000 on car.
Hi, I have a Lexus RX 300 2003 model that has no acceleration after ignition and when in gear. Only the reverse work without issues, however while in drive, I experience no power in acceleration only until the car has warmed up and after at least 20 minutes of waiting. The acceleration may not work even after warm up and so I have to rev the engine for a couple of minutes before it works.
I have replaced the oxygen sensor heater control some and the check engine light went off however the issue still persists. What other measure could cause such an issue.
Am writing all the way from Kenya therefore I may not be able to find a local dealer on your site. I would rely on your advice to guide the mechanics here as well as ensure the right process is followed.
I hope you can help me on this issue.
Said there was a leak on his driveway. He wouldn't tell me what I need to do as far as is this dangerous or anything.. I'm a single mom and worried that this is dangerous. It has 100,000 miles.
Brake pedal depresses, braking occurs, but bumps and chatters
Later on that day got check engine line. Had code ran got cylinder 3 not working. Had all 6 cylinders replaced even though tech stated they were good. Now getting codes on cylinder 2, 3 and one more. Do you think I sucked up gunk from the gas tank? If not what do you think the problem is? TOOOO blessed to be stressed but I'm getting worn down.
wHEN i ACTIVATE THE DRIVERS WINDOW THE RIGHT FRONT PASSENGER WINDOW GOES DOWN AS WELL AS BOTH BACK SEAT WINDOWS AT VARIOUS TIMES.
When I activate the drivers window the left and right back seat windows as well as front passenger seats go down at various times.
The codes that appear are B1421 and B1422. I believe that code B1422 is for the solar sensor on the dash and I would like to disable it. Thanks

But could also be behind centre console. Previous owner had glovebox taken out and a servo motor; heater, replaced by Lexus.
Sounds like CD player running through all the discs. Its intermittent. Doesn't seem to matter whether the A/C is on or not. Haven't had heater on yet because it's hot here. Wondered whether the servo might be ok, just responding to a miswired signal or a short. What do you think?
At first, it was only one door that would not lock or unlock using the remote entry or the power lock button. Now, all of the doors have to be manually locked and unlocked.
I have to undo battery cable to shut everything off. What is causing this?
WHILE IN TRAFFIC STOPPED I HAVE NOTICED THAT THE VEHICLE STARTS RUNNING ERATIC LIKE IT WANTS TO DIE. THIS IS WHILE A/C IS RUNNING,BUT WHEN I CUT IT OFF, IT SEEMS TORERNATO RUN OK. I HAVE NO CODES OR DASH INDICATORS COMING. COULD IT STILL BE ALT
Performed 1/9/2013 "Ck engine light on,running rough (ex wife had vehicle then) Codes P1150, P1155. Air/fule sensor failed replaced sensor $319.63 (this was front sensor). 2 coil packs have failed replaced coil packs and spark plug" $561.20 Total $966.71
6/4/2014 Got vehicle in divorce. Set in drive for a while-tried to crank ponce a week. Ck engine light came on-running rough (bogging down esp on first few miles but sporadic now). Same shop put in BG44 fuel system cleaner and had me run two tanks of gas (never anything but premium since day 1). No help.
6/20/2014 Took back "several codes P1130 and P 1133 came back on, 02 rear sensor failure replaced" $322.67
"had a couple of misfire codes. may need coils later on. will need third 02 sensor"
I have had my car in for repairs for over a month now, I pick it up and another light comes on, usually the service engine light and the VSC light. It does affect my mpg. I have now spent over $1700 and have replaced the front oxygen sensor, downstream oxygen sensor and both knock sensors.... What the heck? If the lights come back on again, then what??
