I'm new to the board. Recently someone took a crow bar to my '93 Lexus LS400 which was much beloved. Reprobates. Anyway I've been looking around and there's a specific look I'm trying to find. It's def not the Mk5 I think as it has the straight headlight. I think it might be DHP? Perhaps you could let me know how difficult this might be to achieve/find? Picture below. Thanks in advance.
Can anyone advise on how best to get confirmation of the first date of registration,I purchased a LS400 which was registered in the Netherlands on I believe 20th October 1995 from a record in the service book however DVLA insist I obtain a letter from a owners club registered on their web site and it appears no Lexus club is,this is all that's preventing registration. Any information would be most welcome.
I have a noise which is difficult to identify , believe it might be to do with power steering as seems more prevalent when turning but can only hear when roof is down and then difficult to separate from road noise.
There is a posting on you tube with very similar sound but no suggestion as to how it was cured , old post and for USA
Anyone any idea , Lexus dealer could not hear it but only tested with roof up
Time ago I began to feel my car vibrating, especially at low revs. Driving another car with same engine confirmed this, older IS 300h was much quieter. I've noticed my car's engine start up is much harder than before, it feels like there is some resistance. Usually i drive only in urban areas, speeds below 100km/h. Today i drove on a highway and it was really problem to keep 130 km/h. My car for sure has lost a lot of power, or there really is some part making serious resistance in the drivetrain.
A few months ago at 75k odd miles I replaced my spark plugs from my mk4.
I couldn't see any evidence of past replacement and was puzzled by very worn plugs bearing the NGK brand in pale blue. They looked old. I did a write up; that's in the how to section.
What I put in were Denso plugs and that's what I'd expected to remove. All the mileage checked out.
However, having a trawl through the handbook I spy that original fitment listed as Denso SK20R11...and NGK IFR6A11.
That solves the riddle: I removed the original NGKs.
