My 2001 Lexus RX300 makes this beeping sound that seems to be coming from around steering wheel area. Every time the beeping sound comes on my cruise control no longer works and I have to press the gas petal (vs. cruising obviously) my steering wheel also feels like I have less control. I was told there was a recall on the Toyota ignition. Could this be the problem on my car?

Floor, and not responding when brake is applied. Took to break masters and was told it may be electrical issue and have something to do with abs?? But can't pin point and sending me to dealership?? Any ideas??

Started hearing loud noise from rear, growling/humming/?? Sound and vibration that stays constant but will level off once cruising at a set speed, and get louder if and when accelerateing. How can I determine if its hubs/bearing issue or bad tire issue, as I've read that both of these issues can sound similar. Can the average Joe do this at home, or does this need to be done in shop setting with a certified mechanic.









Is at the correct level. is there a fairly easy way to rule out possible issues and find the problem for the average car owner. Or does this need to be done in shop setting by cert mechanic?

It is still misfire ing. Check engine light. Comes on and goes off repeats

code is lean on bank two

about a month ago, i noticed at certain times when i accelerate from a complete stop that a loud groaning noise occurs. Sounds like it's on the right side. Has new brake pads and rotors so it's not that. My husband drove it around and doesnt do it for him. It does it at random. At first i thought it was the slick old tires, but it did it today twice after i just put on new tires. It only happens when you accelerate.

got code po171,lean and p1130, bank 1 sensor 1

I have 1 ohm across heater circuit when unplugged

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

car has 209,000. Never had this problem before

has no thumping sounds it runs just fine till i go over 60

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.

Kind regards

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.
