  1. no compromise on japanese cars - always petrol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  2. This is like advice of top up in my opinion, after putting 100g of refrigerant and 8 grams of oil air con was blowing cold air only on passenger side and compressor was quite loud. Filling up system with 430g of R134 and much more oil (but much less than spec sheet from my original post) aircon is blowing ice cold and compressor work is quiet.
  3. There is misleading label under bonnet that says to fill 100g of R134 and 8g of oil but this is pure bs. After top up 100g and 8g of oil cold air was blowing only passenger side.
  4. So nobody maintain AC, that would explain 0 grams of oil in the system in fully serviced car 🤣?
  5. Hi there, I did air con service and I could not find anywhere how much PAG 46 oil should be in system. All sources say "Refer To Manufacturers Specifications" or "n/a" "https://www.mahle-aftermarket.com/media/homepage/facelift/media-center/klima/thermokampagne/2-2-handbuch-fuellmengen-pkw-&-nkw-200120-gb-screen.pdf" The only one I found is from Australia "Lexus IS250 2006 2008 6 Cyl 2.5 Eng PAG46 7 14002951 R134a 16" but it is for years 2006-2008 source: http://www.austinbaker.net/downloads/2014/2014 ABI Oil Catalog.pdf Will this be relevant to 2010 model? Anyone have any confirmed quantity? Thank you
  6. I asked LEXUS dealer in Leicester 3 times for this and never had any replay.

  11. Yes it takes a while, I came from toyota avensis 1.8 petrol and in Lexus I need to make double of the distance to warm up engine.
  12. Yes you can do protective maintenance like changing brushes and cleaning (usually dust is the main cause of electrical failure) same for motor starter However for 190k and 14 years it lasted long anyway.
  13. 21k ?? Not enough used XD, sorry I couldn't resist for 21k diesel
  14. Battery should be around 12.5V so this is ok, alternator has nothing to do with other connections as it is only for direct battery charge Unless you made short circuit somewhere during replacement, check all fuses
  15. It is only oil, filters and differential oil (every 60k miles). The most important is to put decent oil not like generic on from drum as most garages do.
