    GS300 sensors

    Thanks for the useful info master ... the problems connected to the failure of the O2 sensor are too broad to think that this is my only problem. Can be a battery issue too right. i need to know if something specific happens to notice that the o2 sensor is out. Thanks again.

    GS300 sensors

    I forgot to mention one more thing, the check engine light had come up when i took it to the dealership, with a couple of fixtures they were able to turn the signal off but since the time i have brought it home, the light comes up regularly, only when i am 5-10 mints into my driving. When I park my car and turn it off and turn it on again, it does not come up until i drive again for 5-10 mints. Thanks

    GS300 sensors

    Hello everyone, my vehicle GS300 2010 has been the target of loss of power and low on efficiency. it will drive around but its become poor in every aspect. To add to my worries i look it to the dealership last week and they could not find a single problem with the battery, engine, alternator/starter, sparks, wires, etc. I tried googling the problem since i am afraid its going to shut down completely soon and i cant afford that. Found a couple of problems related to "loss of power" and they mentioned something along the lines of a sensor that might have stopped working which is why the car might be performing so poorly. Can someone tell me in layman's terms which sensors we are talking about? Thanks

    cooling seats function

    hey guys I got an IS250 12 from work to use for a couple of days and was out in the afternoon today. I had heard about the cooling seats in this car and saw the function for it too. Tried turning it on with max cooling but felt no difference on the seats. Is there a way to turn them on or something? Thanks

    Heater probs

    The servo is an electric motor. There are 2 of these for the heater control. One controls the heater control valve under the hood which allows hot antifreeze to flow through the heater core. The other moves the blend door. The door allows the air to flow through either the heater core, or the a/c evaporator. If its not moving properly, it may be stuck and not allowing the air to flow through the heater core. Explained!

    Engine tapping noise

    i can sorta relate to that noise in a way because my ES 2004 made a noise like that too. maybe not as loud as a piston slap but there was always a strange sound. to be honest the part about it not being harmful is correct as it never caused any problems for me.
