Question Answered: Air conditioning malfunction need HELP
April 22, 2016, 04:25 PM
IF the air conditioner quit because of refrigerant and oil leaking, then without knowing where the refrigerant/oil is leaking from it is hard to guess at what issue could be. Air conditioning systems need to operate at specific pressures and there are various components that need to work properly in order to maintain those pressures. It could be that the system pressure was to high and it vented through a safety valve or another possibility is that a seal or hose failed and will need to be replaced. Regardless, it would take a properly equipped shop to recharge the system and check pressures after repairs are performed.
Question Answered: Antifreeze leak

Where is it leaking antifreeze? Or is that what you need to determine? More information is needed.
Question Answered: Three things. Oil level a few inches above maximum; runs noisy, but always starts right up and inspite of noise, idles well. Noise isnot as loud inside the car. I hear no rods knocking. I think it's body noise, maybe a motor mount? Fan, heater, air do not

First, the reason for the oil level being so much higher than it should be needs to be determined before major engine damage occurs. It could be someone overfilled it, water could be leaking into the oil, or fuel may be leaking down into the engine oil. The noise issue could be as simple as a damaged or mis-aligned engine mount causing excessive vibrations.
Question Answered: How often should I replace my transfer case fluid has 120000mi. how much $

I don't see any manufacturers recommendation for a service interval. There are ,however, intervals for inspecting the fluid. I would have your shop explain why it should be changed and if youn don't trust their recommendation then you might want to find a new shop you do trust.
Question Answered: Mice get into my car. How do you think they get in? How can keep them out?
September 30, 2013, 06:11 AM
Are they getting into the interior of the car or just the engine compartment? You can't keep them out of the engine area of the vehicle any other way than by somehow keeping them away from the vehicle. As far as the interior there are several ways they can get in no matter what but one way to help shut them out is to set your ventilation system on recirculate when you shut off the vehicle. When the system is in recirculate mode it closes the door to outside air which is an easy way for rodents to get in. Your owners manual should explain in the heater/air conditioner controls section how to select the proper mode.

Has the fuel pressure been tested when it will not start? With no codes pertaining to the complaint I would immediately lean towards a fuel pump issue, thats not to say that there are no other possibilities.
Question Answered: Thinking about an '02 RX300 w/126K. Is this a good, low maint. car for teens?

Have the car inspected by a reputable shop. If the car has been maintained well and the price is right, it may be a great car. The Lexus is very similar to the Toyota Highlander which has proven to be a reliable car.
Question Answered: Every time I pump fuel my KIA Sportage spits gas back out at me.

Is your check engine light on? This symptom could be caused by a clogged fuel tank vent system which should trigger a check engine light and related code. If the check engine light is on or has been on, you may want to have the vehicle checked for codes to see if there are any for the evaporative system.
Question Answered: When starting out, the right rear area has a squeak.
April 22, 2013, 10:10 AM
It depends on if the squeak happens when the suspension moves up and down or as the tire/wheel rotate. The first would be a suspension noise and the second would be a brake, wheel bearing, or seal noise.

Replacing the headlight assembly is usually the best way to repair a moisture issue.
