Question Answered: 2 different shops have given different recommended svcs. Which is more important
January 14, 2017, 10:43 AM
1. The leaking transmission pan gasket is a clue that the transmission fluid hasn't been serviced for some time. A transmission service is important to keep your transmission from failing. However, frankly $130 for a 06 Lexus transmission service sounds low. If you allow them to do it, make sure they are using the manufacturer-specified fluid only. This is very important. 2. Independent shops tend to hire more qualified help and be more thorough. That said, it's not possible for me to comment on the other recommendations without seeing the vehicle. The timing belt has a service interval specified by the manufacturer. If the belt breaks, the vehicle stops - no matter how fast you're going. In a Lexus it won't necessarily damage the engine if it breaks - in many other vehicles it will bend the valves.
Question Answered: code P2165 came up no power, idles rough and stability trek

Didn't find a code P2165. There is a code P2156 for this vehicle which indicates problem w/#4 cylinder. Recommend you have it diagnosed somewhere.

It's either a vacuum leak or belt-related noise
Question Answered: When I make turns I hear a clicking sound near my wheels. What is that?
December 15, 2016, 09:31 AM
It's always a good idea to have noises checked and confirmed at a repair shop, but clicking is oftena bad CV axle.

Bring it by and we'll take a look at it. Is there any oil in it?

At a dealership or shop that is equipped with the appropriate software to reflash the computer.
Question Answered: My car won't start I can here bubbling in the back of the engine I can smell gas
October 19, 2016, 11:42 AM
Smelling gas is never a good sign. This is a highly flammable liquid and if it is escaping, you'd better hope there are no sparks nearby. It would be best to have the vehicle towed to a reputable shop for diagnostics.
Question Answered: Headlights wouldn't turn off. replaced switch, no change. Could it be the relay?
October 03, 2016, 09:41 AM
Yes it could, or it could be something else. You might want to take it to a knowledgeable diagnostician, as it may be cheaper than guessing.
