1990 Lexus LS 400 - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


most probably a torn lower suspension arm rubber bush that would not show up if the car was on a 4 post hoist
there is a problem there as the noise would not be evident if there was nothing wrong
different tire pressures will give different noise when hit with a tire lever ( a trick used by truck drivers to check for flat/ under inflated tires
good tire solid sound
low pressure tire a dull sound

Check the linkages between gear shift and Box could be loose. If these are OK get a transmission service by a good Auto Transmission shop

One filament, in the bulb, is burned out.
remove the bulb, look through it and see if it has two filaments.
replace if necessary.

Hi Jorge. Por ahora, s?lo conduce a la misma velocidad que todos los otros conductores. En ese a?o, un problema com?n estaba poniendo demasiado lubricante en el cable del veloc?metro, causando que se pegue. Golpe? el tablero de la rociada unas cuantas veces y ver si eso lo har? correr. Quiz? deba reemplazar el racimo del instrumento. A veces se encuentran disponibles en los patios de demolici?n del autom?vil.

It seems no one knows the answer. It may be a circuit breaker instead of a fuse. Or maybe a fuseable link.
I found several YouTube videos on replacing the motor, or replacing a plastic gear that's part of the system. If you watch them, it may point you to an answer.

Most car alarm and stereo installers may be able to help you. I took apart the driver's door lock on one vehicle, removed the tumblers and reassembled it but eventually someone messed with it and I was stuck

Best bet is the it to a toyota dealershipnor Napa and have them hook up the computer. They will tell you if your timing is off.

Please check plugs, plugs wires and distributor connection

1990 Lexus LS... | Answered on Aug 19, 2014 | 16 views


check for spark from the spark plug wire pull the plug wire put a screw driver in the wire hold it by the plastic handel so the shaft of the screw driver is close but not touching a ground and watch for a spark be careful not to get shocked or see if the fuel pump is bad sometimes you can hit the gas tank with your hand while you turn the engine over you have to hit hard and fast while trying to start it this means the fuel pump is bad if it starts because it will stop again

Water or contaminants in the fuel system or possibly a bad plug wire? It can also have developed a vacuum leak at the intake manifold or an emissions system failure is possible first check your sparkplug wires that's the cheapest route! I feel like it might just be a plug wire is broken and is jumping spark or the timing belt may be stretched? Look at your mileage if around 100,000 miles then plugs and wires may be at fault?
