  1. Past hour
  2. Yes Ive tried putting car into reverse adjusting mirrors and then back to park. They just won't move on their own. Am I missing part of a sequence? I know it doesent have the power fold when locking function so thought many they don't reverse tilt either?
  3. I'm afraid you're posting in forum full of LS purists so you may not get too many agreeing with you!

  5. 2 reasons i can imagine. Cheap and easier to recycle. Cartridge and spin-on Early engine oil filters were of cartridge (or replaceable element) construction, in which a permanent housing contains a replaceable filter element or cartridge. The housing is mounted either directly on the engine or remotely with supply and return pipes connecting it to the engine. In the mid-1950s, the spin-on oil filter design was introduced: a self-contained housing and element assembly which was to be unscrewed from its mount, discarded, and replaced with a new one. This made filter changes more convenient and potentially less messy, and quickly came to be the dominant type of oil filter installed by the world's automakers. Conversion kits were offered for vehicles originally equipped with cartridge-type filters. In the 1990s, European and Asian automakers in particular began to shift back in favor of replaceable-element filter construction, because it generates less waste with each filter change. American automakers have likewise begun to shift to replaceable-cartridge filters, and retrofit kits to convert from spin-on to cartridge-type filters are offered for popular applications. Commercially available automotive oil filters vary in their design, materials, and construction details. Ones that are made from completely synthetic material excepting the metal drain cylinders contained within are far superior and longer lasting than the traditional cardboard/cellulose/paper type that still predominate. These variables affect the efficacy, durability, and cost of the filter
  6. It's the opposite in my handbook! Doing as you suggest disables tilt on reverse. Handbook says to select either left or right to enable the auto tilt function. @Shada, have you actually set a position for the tilt on reverse?
  7. Every YouTube video I seen said it had to be selected l or r and the function was disabled in the centre. I can't get it to work in any position and not even sure if the function is fitted
  8. Can't see why not? I mean - the styling's a bit marmite but the turbo v8 can't be sniffed at! The LS400 is legendary but it's not perfect; just try opening the centre armrest when there's a drink in the cupholder.... or drive off after a rainstorm with the window down!
  9. Interesting that Lexus use a replaceable filter element rather than a self contained cartridge. Haven't seen one of those for decades. I even converted my 1958 sports car to the cartridge system about 10 years ago. Anyone know about the pros and cons?
  10. Today
  11. Make sure that the mirror switch is evenly set between L and R.
  12. My mirrors don't auto tilt in reverse and I can't find a menu to enable it. Should they or does the is300h have this function? am I missing something? Just figured out how to get a signal on the dab radio it's not the easiest car to figure when I'm not up on techy things.
  13. Ours is a 63 plate (November 2013) Advance. Had 33.5k on the clock when we bought it in February last year and we paid just under £25k for it. Certainly didn't look rough inside then and still doesn't now at 47k.
  14. Hi everyone I've been looking to trade in my avensis 2012 2.2 against a used rx450h .now I've looked at quite a few and I have found the following issue 2013/14 model 25-40k miles interiors look rough seats etc price range 22-26k , ok with extended warranty to cover issues to just over 100k and 10-12 years age so good for hi spec model .or buy 2010-2012 in really nice condition top spec all goodies etc for 17-20k money wise and 60-80k mileage but it limits you on extended warranty which puts you off higher spec model .I know this may be a big ask but what has everyone else spent ie main dealer / specialist small dealer ,vehicle Year ,spec ,mileage and what did you all pay ? all help would be helpful regards Alan
  15. I know but it shouldn't be done to such a fine carriage surely 😟
  16. Hi Jason thanks, i still have this one from my CT200h so it fits also on the IS300H? I did not try it yet.
  17. I’m using this one.... https://www.amazon.co.uk/SODIAL-Filter-Wrench-Removal-Corrola/dp/B0752F4L21/ref=mp_s_a_1_4?keywords=lexus+oil+filter+removal+tool&qid=1563726149&s=gateway&sprefix=lexus+oil+filter+&sr=8-4 It works effectively and was cheap Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Hi, anyone knows which tool to use for removing and fitting the oilfilter from the IS300h? Like the one using in this video at 16:00 min
  19. I squeezed a 300bhp Nissan turbo engine into my Ford Capri so I'm quite partial to a bit of Frankenmotoring...

  21. Thanks for that. Looked at a couple of SE models but want the SE-L version. Finding prices vary too as to what condition the car is in. But thanks again for your info, yes I meant Jump start. The dealer got me in the car so I could not see how he jump started it, but used a box rather than another car. Still looking, not sure if we should pay a little extra and look at RX450h but alot of people suggest there is no point. I also wondered if there is anyway to update the sat nav. Thanks again.

  23. I have a Toyota aristo 2jzgte non -vvti registration 1994.[JZS147] A fault has developed regarding high idle from cold start ie instead of initial say around 1700 rpm it slowly increases instead of dropping as the engine heats up?[ once warm if rpm at idle was 1000 rpm it would clear by switching engine off/on[bringing idle to normal at hot 650-700 rpm ,but now no longer the case] On engaging auto box drive the revs drop to around 1100 rpm and the car really drives on it`s own. In park the engine surges/hunts between 1500-3000 rpm. I changed the IAC Valve ,but no difference. Toyota cannot fix as being an import, but did say it was a vacuum leak .Also car has a mines ECU. Disconnecting/reconnecting battery no longer clears high idle either. ie ECU not relearning? Can you give me some help . Thank you , Best regards, Alex.
