    is 200
  1. Thanks guys. Today i disconnected the battery for a few mins and its still the same. If it was a coil pack wouldnt it run and idle funny ? it runs fine just quarter throttle pedal to the floor. could it be a fuse for throttle motor ? I have rang around some local garages and all of which have blagged me off to lexus main dealer. Skint at mo. could def do without that. any ideas on where 2 go to get the codes read ? im in middlesex west london.
  2. I hope someone can help me. ive got a 99 lexus is200 manual. I didnt use the car for few weeks and now i have the engine management light on. Also the traction control light flashes. The main problem is that the throttle pedal seems too have about 3 inches of play then some throttle for the last 1inch, which means the car is dangerously underpowered as im only getting quarter throttle. I thought the cable may need tightening but i checked and it was pulling back right to the stop. it seems as-though the outer cable holder turns freely, but there is another cam closer to the block which is only starting to turn for the last inch. When i turn the inner cam with the engine running it can rev fully. This leads me to think this is a mechanical fault rather than an electrical. is something missing from the cable holding cam to turn the inner cam ??? anyone have any ideas or pics of how theres is/looks ? any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all. keep up the good work.
  3. lately my is200 seems to drive absolutely fine in 1st and 2nd gear but when you get to 3rd or 4th every now and again the engine seems to rev without transferring power top the wheels. In my past experience this usually means the clutch is on its way out. What you guys think ? its done 103k If the clutch is :tsktsk: how much am i looking at ? Thanks.
  4. Wandering if you can help me. Im getting a very slight knocking noise when going over very small bumps. Its almost like i can feel the knocking under my peddle so its definaltely drivers side. Garage has checked all suspension brakes e.t.c. Was this the same symptoms you were getting ? Thanks
  5. Hey, That was me, the no shower. He said to get there before half 2 and i couldn't make it. I wanna go today. What were the symptons you were having ? I seem to get a light knocking noise but only when going over small bumps. Over the big stuff its fine. Is it worthwhile doing ? and how much it cost ya ? Im thinking of going in a minute.
  6. O.k. Anyone have WIM full address and phone number ? also how much am i looking at ?
  7. Hi all, My is200 drives lovely apart from under hard braking i have a steering wheel shudder. Also the steering wheel is slightly off centre to the right to get the car to go in a straight line. I have heard alot about the Dr. Problem is he is far away from me. Leeds i believe. Does anyone know where i can get this done closer to home ? I'm in middlesex west london. Also any ideas of cost ? I refuse to take it to kwik-fit. Any help much appreciated

  11. No problem i used to own a ecu re-mapped audi S3 1 . Re-mapping changes the program on your cars ecu (computer) basically changing how much fuel, air and the timing. Done on naturally aspirated cars. I.E cars with no turbocharger has little effect. Where as cars with turbo chargers whether they be diesel or petrol re-mapping can have HUGE benefits. Basically the manufacturers in your friends case audi will set the car so the turbo is running low boost so the car will have better fuel economy using less fuel and not overwork the engine. Re-mapping will run higher boost through the turbo and more fuel to compensate therefore greatly increasing the cars BHP and torque figures. 2. Re-mapping is just changing your e.c.u's settings. I had my Audi S3 done by REVO these are very well respected for audi re-mapping. 3. Unfortunately re-mapping will use more fuel. Being a turbo though if you keep off the boost it will be bearable. 4. Seems V.Expensive. I had mine done by big boys toys in essex. They are REVO dealers and i think i paid about £400 + VAT 5. REVO REVO REVO they done mine and it was ACE :D 6. Being re-mapped, there is no evidence of this. All they do is plug your ECU into a laptop wait 5 mins and away you go. I highly reccomend this but go to www.revo.co.uk they do the most renouned and reliable re-map on the market. The guys at Big Boys Toys if your near are ace. They took my car for a spin with the laptop connected to make sure all was o.k. They will change settings for you at a different date too. I went back they turned my boost up for free. Hope this is of help ???? Thanks a lot lexuslee, great advise and appriciated too. Will pass on the info and checking out the Revo site soon. So best bet is go for it and not to warry aout the fuel since the smile on your face will be enough to forget about the diesel been drained.. Cheers.. Dibslpg Correct. My S3 was 225bhp standard and with the REVO brought it up to around 260. I was eating subarus for breakfast. Diesels can expect just as much of a power gain.
  12. Dont know where abouts you are in u.k but theres a bodyshop next to my work www.littleknocks.com really nice lads. They do a real good job too and pride themselves on small repairs. Prices are very reasonable give them a ring Little Knocks Unit 7 Canal Way Summerhouse Lane Harefield Middlesex UB9 6TG Tel: 01895 822665
