Get a fill kit with a pressure gauge on it from an auto parts store. The ones with a red, yellow,green indicator are the easiest to use. Follow the instructions on the label. You will be measuring pressure from the low pressure side, that's the one with the thicker aluminum pipe coming out of the compressor. There will be a service port with a plastic cap on it. That's where you connect the refill kit. Follow the instructions & get the pressure into the middle area on the gauge while the a/c is on max & the engine running.

The Nakamichi radio in the 1998 Lexus LS400 is turned on by pressing the large round button on the radio in. This same button also controls the volume by turning it clockwise or anticlockwise. The radio will use the same audio input that it used when it was turned off. The input can be changed using the series of buttons on the right side of the radio, tape, cd, fm, am.

I drive quite a few miles in my 1998 LEXUS LS40 and have religiously changed the oil every 5,000 miles (and rotated the tires). Im pushing 185,000 miles on it now and I am due to change the timing belt a second time next weekend. That being said, I have never had any issues with the engine changing the oil at a 5,000 mile interval. I use the standard synthetic blend oil at the local quick stop type oil change places.

Been there! If the trunk rim gasket is intact and securely in place, look for areas at the top where factory sealant under the paint has retreated (like a glacier) and apply sealant along the edges

Are there any warning lights on in the dash, may a security warning light? If so you will need to reset the security system, refer to the owners manual or callthe local Lexus dealer for instructions.

The sensor is located in the exhaust system just off the exhaust manifold in the head pipe, it is removed using a special 7/8" O2 sensor socket, this socket requires a 1/2" drive ratchet and a short extension in most cases. The sensor unscrews counter clockwise. This engine will have 2 sensors, one for each bank of engine cylinders, you must id the correct sensor before the change out. If money is not a problem i would suggest you replace both sensors as an old and new sensor can provide confusing output data to the powertrain control module(computer).

The starter itself might need cleaning of old dirt, grease, oil, or crud inside, but I think your starter solenoid is failing. The contacts in it are probably pitted and failing.
Those starters are pretty bullet-proof. Don't exchange it for a cheap alternative. Just replace or repair the solenoid.
