Morning all, Bit of an issue with my otherwise lovely 1998 LS, really hope someone can help! A leaky injector hydrolocked my VVTi engine - You can see the result below: A member from another (non-Lexus) car forum sent me some replacement pistons, but they're from a non VVTi engine, as you can see here (the more pocketed piston is from my engine): My question to the members on this forum - does anyone have a spare VVTi rod and piston assembly they're willing to send me for beer tokens? I spent all of last weekend getting the bent rod out on my parents' driveway, it was a bit of a nightmare to be honest! Had to strip the engine down, then hoist it up whilst dropping the subframe so that I could remove number 1 oil pan. It would be a real shame now that I've got to this stage to give up, but it's starting to feel like it might go that way :( Really hope you can help! I absolutely loved this car when I bought it - my first Lexus and hopefully the only one I ever need. Cheers, James
