It happened to me and my wife 4 times and resulted in neck pain and headache, and almost being hit by another car. I hate 18-inch wheels because of this. Seemed to be a band aid fix for a major problem. The Lexus dealership has called it a situation not a problem. Thanks for assisting by providing your answers. The most bothersome is the lack of proper response when the driver needs to slow down and then accelerate such as turning left or changing lanes to avoid obstacles or double parked cars.
Automatic transmission hestiates, hunts, shifts inconsistently, hangs in between gears, delayes, etc. Its an embarrassing eyesore and getting worse. Transmission was its only downfall other that a pain getting to the oil filter. It feels like all power falls away. If I could have gotten to him before he ordered those tires, I would have specified the Bridgestone Alenzas primarily because they carry a 65,000 mile treadwear warranty, probably the only tire that will fit this wheel that carries one. Can anyone give me a logical explanation for this? When I had the headlight examined, the igniter I believe it was needed to be replaced. Hope this helps, Justin ps.
They say there is nothing they can do to correct this problem. I decided to reset this code again, continued my testdriving and yes at that moment the overdrive was working, but after one or two miles check engine light came on and overdrive not working anymore. Now during my third and fourth visits Lexus has declined to reset the chip or do anything about it. Toyota soon discovered the flaw in the design when the '99 models, after 70-80,000 miles started requiring new transaxles. The drive-by-wire throttle system in these vehicles has caused enough frustration and fury in some owners to make them dump the vehicle, while other owners have experienced no problems with it. Eventually the system comes on but will not play any of the cds stuck in the system. If so, what was the cause, and how much can I expect to pay to have it fixed short of just buying a completely rebuilt transmission?

I have had at least 4 near accidents with this Lexus Rx330 since July of 2004. When I pull over and stop and start the car the problem goes away to return an hour later. By the 2004 model year, is the oil gelling problem a non-issue? I should know by Monday. You will use this Electronic cleaner to spray onto those resistors to absorb and clean all that dirt and grime that is covering the resistors. Thanks to all for your input. The CarFax Report comes up clean and I can make a couple of phone calls and get any applicable Lexus service records tomorrow.
Could this problem be related to the knock sensors? The lead mechanic told me they simply don't have a fix, and he knows it's an issue. This will fix your problem unless there's another problem down-stream - if the Check Engine light goes back on again - but I doubt it - because your error code only says P0171 and nothing else - correct? The question is what this means. Dealer replaced the pump with the same model pump , but problem was not fixed. Thanks for assisting by providing your answers. I knew I was low on oil so I stopped, added a quart and the problem went away. Thank you for the detailed posting! Long ugly cracks run over the entire surface of the dash. Sounds like it's definitely sensor related.
And I've only had it for 2. It is very much appreciated. If I take off too fast, and by that I don't mean real fast, it often will not shift into overdrive. Suspect it may be due to a dashboard replacement recall. If it wasn't for the cracked dashboard I'd be extremely happy with my car.
I have recently had the dealer do the upgrade, for free under warranty, and the problem is gone for now. Many thanks for those who venture an opinion in reply! Car not safe to drive. Also not much they can do right now until Lexus makes a move. Everyone should look into this. Squeaky clean, well-appointed, well-maintained, brand new Michelins, all services performed at Lexus, so all records are in order and complete. Very common on motorcycles where they use really cheap o2 sensors. Dealer replaced A frame rebound bumper.
I am currently running it in my Camry. Provide the driver with a manual over-ride switch to disable this function if the roadbed traction is questionable. This latter symptom will be more pronounced with a cold engine as the rings are not yet fully sealing the cylinders. Lexus can not win this argument on repetition, it is defective. About 15 minutes after driving the diver side vents start blowing straight cold air but the.
