Quick Quiz Question

Morning All,

I probably shouldn't publicly admit any driver errors but anyway here we go Past few months on 3 seperate occasions I've gone to put her into second gear and find i've been fighting with the gear box as it just won't go

Twice moving off from a roundabout and once turning a corner eventually after a few seconds (trying to get any gear) and my blood pressure comes back down ill find it and off we go again.

At first I put this down to driver error but since it's now happend again for the 3rd time im thinking again.....

I know the IS gearbox is indistructable

But could this be anything other than driver error something slipping or not quite engaging perhaps??????

Any input would be great

Thanks Guys

iirc, there has been some history with Lexus IS200 manual gear boxes being a bit iffy at going in to gear, never having a manual IS myself I have not had the experiance. Give a search on gearboxes etc a go to see what it brings up.

Should be enough light afternoon reading in that lot, I gave up looking, but if you search on "gear" and ignore all the "top gear" posts and work from the back forward, there are plenty more you might be able to have a look through.

Hope that helps :)

The last two or so links note a "notchyness" in getting in to 2nd gear, which might be the resistance you are having with you gear box...

Matt is selling a short-shift which may help, might be worth a PM to him to discuss.

How would I check if the Clutch is on it's way out or not?

also worth checking the clutch isn't on its way out.

Pull handbrake right up.

Put car in first.

Bring up clutch slowly and see if car will eventually cut out.

If not, then the clutch is slipping = "on its way out".

I used to have trouble getting it in second esspically when rev's where a bit higher, im not sure how but it eventually went away, might be i got used to it or i might have had a service around that time not sure might be worth having a garage look at it just in case

If you havnt sorted it, hope this helps

had this with an old car and i found it was the linkage cable was bodged onto the gearbox with a cable tie, so it wasn't 100% true at finding 2nd gear. (notchy and clunky). Maybe worth checking that all linkages are ok and possibly some lubrication.

Gear synchromesh??? don't know much about it but this was also mentioned before i found the cable tie.

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
