  1. Try to find former owner or car history. The belt was changed att a time. Maybe some nr. on the belt.
  2. Took the car to the Lexus garage today for Flushing, but they could'nt do it because of a missing fitting for the flushtube to the gearbox, but before they noticed the missing fitting they already had drained the pan, so they had to refill the drained quantity oil, maybe its placebo but i believe the gearbox is reacting faster on throttle movement (gear down) but because of the first snow this winter i had to be a little gentle, but I am 99% sure that something is changed for the better, going to take a full flush in about 14 days so maybe its getting even better, my only little criticism on the car have been that with a kickdown the car used to much time to react compared to an earlier owned car(Volvo) but I believe this issue is changed for the better.
  3. Remember that you have to send itt from the phone, i did this a fev days ago and vaited and vaited, noting hapend, i had to tell the phone to send the contacts, and its ok now.
  4. Today i ordered time for flushing of my 2006 Is250. 250000km on the counter. why? From first contact with Lexus in Norway i was told to not do anything with it , so i talked to a former owner of my car that also is a mechanic for a Toyota store, he advised me to flush and told me that Toyota Landcruiser also had lifetime limit on gearbox oil, that have been changed to flush at some km, so i did call another Lexus store in Norway about this issue, he advised me to flush the gearbox because of the high miliage on the car, so i searched the net about Aisin that manufacture the gearbox, their advice was to flush or refill( not sure ) every 40000km. After this info i decided to do a flush on my gearbox on November 8. After that i will let you all know about the user benefit from this, if any. After mu finding i realy dont understand the do nothing vith it from Lexus.
  5. I replaced my battery 3 weeks ago and have a usb with volt meter in the car and after 14 days with only short trips i did go for an 1 hour trip, the charging volt was 14.2v allmost all the way and did go down to not charging after 55min. So if you use the car like me with only 10 min trips, charging the battery maybe once a month will make your battery happy and last longer. Quote Send Sticky Note
  6. How often do you charge the battery? I replaced my battery 3 weeks ago and have a usb with volt meter and after 14 days with only short trips i did go for an 1 hour trip, the charging volt was 14.2v allmost all the way and did go down to not charging after 55min.
