Right...got myself a 2000 Lexus is200 se (2000)
A day after I got it, the Engine light came on and the TRC light started flashing. The car started idling low and rocking slightly, almost like it was missfiring. Instinct told me it was a coil pack so I tested them all (all fine) I even swapped all of my step fathers coil packs over as he also has is200 se but made no difference.
I have done a fair few things to it and it just isn't making a difference. I clear the faults and the lights come on again :megaangry:
The list of things I have done so far are as follows...
1. Full Service (inc: plugs, oil flush, all filters etc)
2. Took throttle body apart and cleaned it all, tightened up throttle cable as was sightly loose - Still slightly lumpy
The only thing I can think it is now is the 'oil control valve' or 'camshaft oil control valve' (what ever you call it)
Can anyone help as Im rapidly loosing the will to live now. Anyone having the same issue or can give any advice would be great.
Diagnostic machine will not pick a fault up - Which doesn't help but mind you I have got a non-standard head-unit in and I have heard that they interfere with the diagnostic checking!
