'98 Mk 2 GS300 - losing brake fluid

Recommended Posts

My beloved '98 GS300 brake warning light comes on about once a month and a small amount of brake fluid is needed to rectify this.

Have anyone experienced similar or know where the leak may be occurring?

Michael,

I had a weep on the ABS pump of my 98 GS. I think this was a known weakness. My garage sent it off to a specialist for repair as a new Lexus part was very expensive. Once repaired I never has any more trouble.

John,

Thanks for your response.

I am suspecting the master cylinder, ABS pump or something equally wallet-purging. These items are not available on the aftermarket. 

Do you happen to know the name of the repair specialist?

Michael,

My garage thinks it was ACTronics Ltd, Unit 3, Brunel Court, Brunel Way, Colchester C04 9PX, 01206 849920, info@actronics.co.uk.

I looked at https://www.actronics.co.uk/products and did a search for Lexus GS but the Mk 2 seems to be missing. Best to ring them?

John

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
