For myself, I would change the part. If so, how much would it cost to replace the batteries? Look in the owners manual as there is a diagram in there I believe. Very expensive repair if done by dealer. Your high-performance vehicle definitely requires the best premium parts that you can buy. This, of course doesn't apply to all, but certainly a good portion of them. The noise has become much more pronounced over the past 1k miles even though Lexus said it would not get worse - my experience if Lexus Poole over the past 2 yrs has not been good so I don't really trust their diagnosis and I'm considering paying an Indy to have a look - can anyone recommend a good Indy in Dorset? Tension pulley is behind the radiator and a little left of center.
In my opinion delear Lexus tri county from New Jersey they not fixed my engine like they should and after one months engine broke- I make recall for this. Also, doesn't the chain have tensioners to prevent this sort of thing, so if they've failed would that still be wear and tear? Part number is the same for both banks 15678-46020 Hi Guys The noise is constant ant not just at start up. The filter is located just forward of the drain plug. Will be able to offer a reference then. But passenger room is tight and the driving position is flawed.
Just remove the air intake duct above the radiator. If only to put any future owners mind at ease when I sell the car. Jayna isn't very forum savvy, so I'll be her voice here. If it does, I'm pretty gentle on the car. I have paid £190 to get it checked and the engine taken apart. Either way I need to get the dealer to look at the issue again but unfortunately I have meeting all over the country this week that I can't move and I'm likely to clock up 1k miles so I'm really hoping something doesn't give out and cause major damage. Or when the car is in motion going straight on a highway or an intersection it could stall, and cause an accident to occur.
The belt is absolutely well made and many have stretched to 200k on them. Oil level is fine do I know it's not that and the oil is clear even though it's done over 9k since last service. People rail against one or the other but the fact is sometimes cars break and you have to fix them. Usually come up to speed after a stop gently and in no hurry. Modern cars have timing chains because of a trend to minimize routine maintenance on vehicles. Turn the ignition switch on without starting car 2.
Because of the inconsitency of the car stalling when in motion it makes it especially dangerous for the other drivers on the road and pedestrains. The filter is an element replacement only along with two O rings for sealing. Her main car is a '06 Prius and it has never had battery issues either. The lexus has an electronic circuit board behind the inst. Timing chains were all but abandoned with the problems of chain stretch and the introduction of the cam belt but are now making a comeback with new technology to avoid chain stretch or so I was to believe. Turn the ignition switch off. Even if you were to hold the gas pedal to the floor in neutral until something failed, it would not be the chain.
Hey 150k change, that would be my max. Never ever attempt to run the engine with the removable link, it may snap or come off. The car runs and drives fine and I think I would notice is the timing chain had skipped a tooth. Thanks again everyone for your help and support. The owner's manual is very clear on this issue. I'll have to do something else better than that.
This seems pretty extreme to me and I would appreciate any advice as to whether this cost is reasonable or if I could get it done without the main dealer for considerably less. Do not allow the crankshaft pulley to rotate while doing this. But like any rubber component, age and fatigue will eventually cause the potential for failure. Like the pistons, fan belt, camshaft and so on, the timing chain is running constantly for every inch you drive. My 4runner now has over 260k miles with the original timing chain…so far so good. The tension pulley is spring loaded. Before the timing chain, Lexus used a timing belt.
Call a dealer and ask if it is an iterference engine. I Also hope your company can reduce the shipping price for an item under five dollars. I will go through the recalls listings on lexus. Is there any major maintenance am I likely to need for this model with these miles? If cost is a issue, get a complete aftermarket kit , all the hard parts tens, idlers are high quality. Drain the oil first, and then remove the element. This is also the time to replace your water pump, idler pulleys, and belts.
