  1. Hi all, So today we finally get a warm day in the north east so I put my air con to cold for the first time. (I run my air con all year round) however when I was expecting nice ice cold air I was just getting cold air compared to the passenger side that was getting all the nice ice cold air. Both sides were set to low but only one side gets the ice cold air. called Lexus Teesside who said it could be the Air mix servo that could be sticking and not going down all the way to low. Has as anyone experienced this issue before if so did it cost a lot to get fixed or is there a hack to reset it? Regards Joel
  2. Clunk when steering

    Hi! Someone please give me some advice! When turning the wheel i get this clunking sound! Depending on how much i turn the wheel to either side i can hear it more than once like rubber is catching onto something! like you would slide your finger over a baloon... Note that this is not on full lock! it does this when turning left or right and it doesn't matter if i am moving or not! Any help will be appreciated!

  4. Rattle/ vibration sound, feel

    Hi! I am experiencing something that is rather annoing! I start the car and select first to drive off! All normal! Then i select second and as the revs go up just after 1800rpm there is this rattle sound that i can feel in the steering wheel and vibration! When it gets over 2000rpm it stops and then changing to third is the same going after 1800 rpm when picking up speed the vibration comes back until it goes past 2000 rpm... In this time i can feel the car vibrating like it struggles around this rev... all normal when 4th is selected! If i rev the engine when parked i dont get that! I recently cleaned egr and maf and after using shell v-power for months i put a tank of bp to see how it feels! Car accelerates and drives fine but i get that judder/vibration at that rev cound when picking up speed! It is something like a BRRRRRRRRRRRRRR Lexus is220d 2007

  7. Engine cover clips

    Hi all, As it’s been forecast for strong winds like an idiot I opened my bonnet to top up with washer fluid! A gust of wind managed to remove the front plastic engine covers along with clips. i know the clips are poor however are any people using alternative clips to hold down there engine covers? I know most people have some missing or all of them so wondering what are people are using. Have looked on eBay and ones I have seen look like the poor ones I have already. cheers in advance Joel

  9. Vsc errror please help

    Hi, I do not really have any idea about cars at all, upon starting my car this evening (lexus is220d ) 2007 I got the vsc error and turned on the engine and Tc lights. Would this be from a filter problem, I have had no problems before. It is due for a service in 2k (currently 80k) would you recommend to call the road side assistance and ask them to define the fault or to take it to a garage or a dealership and ask them to asses any help is much appreciated
  10. Hi guys. Looking for an answer into the issue i have with my IS220D. it is an manual 2006 IS220D with 140,000 on the clock. I bought the vehicle in June, knowing of this issue, but hoping it’s a cheap easy fix to which I have only attempted terraclean as of yet. The issue I have, is that the car feels well underpowered before the turbo kicks in, foot could be flat to the floor and it feels like it is holding back. Asoon as the turbo kicks in it’s flying. Has anyone got the solution? Thanks in advance.
  11. Remapped my IS220D SE-L 2 years ago

    Hi guys, Thought I should join to share my IS220d experience. I had issues blanking my EGR few years ago as it would throw up all sorts of errors. tried cleaning but only eliminated issues temporarily. I found a company willing to do a remap. He managed to delete DPF and EGR. I then blanked the EGR with a plate and got the DPF gutted by a professional welder (mechanic) within a week of map. The car was at 120k mileage when mapped. it is now at 162k pulling strong on all gears. the economy, torque and response was an still is really noticeable. I manage 38>mpg on minor boost and 31-36mpg having fun with it. These figures vary dependent on weather and road conditions hence the large variations. To summarise, 1. hydrocarbon engine flush. (I just did it for the sake of it) 2. remap (delete EGR and DPF from ECU) 3. Blank EGR (blanking plate from ebay) 4. DPF gutted then re-welded professionally (from my mechanic) Hope this helps,
  12. Hi all, can an anyone recommend a good replacement gear knob for is220d. Got quoted from Lexus £150 quid for a new one. Just wanting to know if anyone has replace there’s and if so what with. ta Joel
  13. I put this together from all the scrap pieces of paper that I had written on and thrown in the service manual. Just throught I'd share - some may be interested. Next car I get, I'll include tyres and others like bulbs, etc. Also, I'll track costs too.
  14. Hello All, Just wanted to check where you guys are getting you parts. It seems there are no problem to find front caliper slider pins set: Though, I would argue £30 is not exactly cheap for few (non genuine) bolts... However, it is even worse for rear - I cannot find any for sale in UK (P/N: 04948-30210). The only ones I could find are either in eBay (from Latvia) or in Amazon (from US), few weeks wait time and £30 for 4 pins (not even genuine)... Does anyone know the place to buy them in UK? Amazon US ones are actually genuine toyota and cheaper, but still few weeks wait: One question on the side - what are the size of Lexus locking wheel nuts? M12x1.5? (bloody tire place hamered my ones in place so hard I will have to extract them and replace all 4 now..)
  15. Hi, this is my first post. I've recently bought a 2006 is 220d and I need to replace the rear n/s caliper and carrier. The caliper that is currently fitted has the number: 43 L 10, on it, I've found a replacement for the same model of car which has the number: 45 L 10 on it. Does anyone know if this will be a compatible replacement? I've attached an image of the new part.
  16. In order to use the techstream, a ECU version need to be chosen for my lexus is220d. But there are three version listed on the software, I don't know which one is correct. How can I know the correct ECU version of my car?
  17. Hello all, I've just become the proud owner of an IS220D SE-L with 116,000 miles on the clock. One interesting thing i haven't investigated further is that the fuses have been removed for the heated seats and also for the ABS system. Can anyone advise why this may have been, as i intend to replace with the correct fuses as it would have been before. Previous owner didn't even know they were missing! Thanks all, Simon

  20. Hi guys, This is my first post in a long while, and apologies if this has already been answered elsewhere as i couldn't find an answer myself. I'm in a bit of a normally bullet proof 2006 is220d SE has recently started to cough and splutter before stalling when at idle. This does not happen all of the time, oand when it does its usually after a couple of mins of the car being in idle if i am letting it "warm up" , or if i come to a stop after driving (parking up). once this happens it struggles to start up again but after a few attempts it usually fires back up. another thing i noticed the other day was that the revs jump from idle to around 1500 rpm a few times before it stalls. my most recent episode was when i was waiting at the lights and as i set off the revs started to jump causing the car to sort of bounce along. i tried to accelerate and found there was no power just the revs jumping erratically, fortunately it didn't stall and drove normal after a minute or so of going crazy. i service the car every 10k miles without fail, and last service was done approx 8k miles ago. the car has done 210k miles - but trust me when i say this, it does not feel anywhere near that mileage as it has been properly maintained, to the point where sometimes you cannot tell it is a diesel vehicle let alone a high mileage one. its just this little niggle now is causing me alot of no error codes or lights..any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks
  21. So I bought this Lexus is 220d from a car dealer 50 miles away, just as I got a few roads away from home I lost my acceleration. I was pulling out from a junction and it suddenly had nothing to give. Here is the fun part... I bought the car with the VSC and engine management light already on. My first thought was that it was going to be a simple DPF issue or something simple. The car did still have power even with the VSC light on and it still runs fine now but no acceleration. DTC from scanner: P1426, P2002 (Particulate Trap Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank1)) and P2047 (Reductant Injector Circuit / Open (Bank 1 Unit 1)). What I have done to find and fix the problem. General inspection revealed sensor from back of the engine (I think 5th injector sensor P2047) was unplugged and so was another in the DPF (I think temp sensor P1426 code). After plugging them both in the codes went away. For P2002 I took the car on a very long run after using a DPF cleaner and fuel additive and had no effect. Decided to try remove the DPF from the vehicle to have a look but to my surprise before I removed it completely I could see light coming from the other end. I think the people before me obviously removed it unless it has been broken up and inside of the convertor itself which I think would be unlikely as I would have seen some sort of broken material surely? One of the differential pressure sensor tubes that come from the DPF is blocked, I could not unblock this with a tyre compressor so I used a T connector to join the two and then used another T connector to go straight into the pressure sensor. I was worried about the sensor getting too much pressure so I decided to put a couple breather holes in the tube so the pressure wouldn’t build up even close to 14psi. This has cured my VSC light. I have done tests with the differential pressure sensor and I think it seems to be in good working order, unplugged the signal reads 4.8v, plugged in with power its 0.8v and when the car is running it will fluxuate around 0.8v. It does seem like its missing the power from the turbo as if I had a leak between turbo and manifold. I have looked for vacuum leaks but it’s been hard finding any problems. I have inspected the turbo actuator (wastegate) and it seems to move and do its job. Alternator is charging and battery is good health. Glow plugs have good resistance and volts going to them. Put paper against the exhaust to see good pressure and no suction from exhaust valves. EGR is clean and good condition the valve moves freely. While inspecting the EGR I could see a fair bit of carbon maybe oil build up on the air intake manifold. Vacuum pressure regulator seems to be working fine in regards to resistance etc. but not sure if its diverting the air to the filter when volts are going to it. I done the test while it was still on the vehicle and could read it had 12v supply while plugged in but when I blew on the hose I was still coming out of the other hose not filter, sure it would provide a DTC if it was faulty. I spoke with someone that done remapping and he said if I deleted the files from the ECU then I wouldn’t have the problem with the DPF anymore assuming all the sensors and everything was in working order, he told me he couldn’t find any problems. I paid the guy £250 to come out he remapped my car and it had no effect... Its driving me crazy I need to get this fixed.
  22. Hi there, newbie Lexus owner here 😬 Wud any of members know where the engine number is located on the engine block of a 56 plate 220d??? As I wish to check against logbook as previous owner told me engine was changed at Lexus but has no record of it..... I could ring dealer but thought I'd try u guys first. Thanks in advance Chris.
  23. I recently received the Techstream which I brought from ebay 2 month ago for checking the Block percentage of DPF. “Luckily”, my DPF problems happened again (the 3th times in 7400 mil) and I recorded the data before and after the DPF regeneration using the TS. The TS dose show more data compared to cheap EM327 OBD2 scanner. An it dose provide DPF regeneration function that you might simply sit still and rev the engine to regen without dangerously stop-start driving on motorway. So, I wanna share with you guys. In the NEXT TWO screenshots below, please pay attention to the “0” column and "DPF PM BLOCK" row. The ECU saved the P2002 error with last 3 data, the time error occur data and 1 data followed. These 2 screenshots record the data at when the DPF block error occured. After checked up the ERROR code P2002, I start to looking for some data to show the available capacity of DPF. On other cars, it would be shown as percentage like "150% full". But I failed to find it. The only data I could check is the DPF differential pressure, which also shown on upper 2 screen shot. The differential pressure is also the source that ECU tells how much the DPF is blocked. The data highlighted in screenshot below is the DPF differential pressure. This screenshot was taken at I was just going to start DPF regen. Throttle in IDLE, you can tell by looking in Engine speed. This screenshot below was taken when I just started to regen. After I switched on the regen, one data related to DPF regen change, which is the After Injection Period. I think it means that the engine is actually started to heat up the exhaust gas. But I didn't notice when I took the screenshot. As the requirements (tank not overfull, rev at 1750 to 2750, coolant above 75 Celsius, shown in the TS when selected the regen test. but not shown in the screenshot) of regen process, the car was sitting still and gearbox in neutral with engine revved at around 2000 rpm. (Is the throttle not controller by TS? I had to press the pedal by myself). You can see that the differential pressure going all the way up to 11kpa (110mbar) when the engine revved at 2200rpm. I kep the throttle at around 2000 rpm for about 5 minute. (The regen was acutrally works but I didnt notice at the time. So I doubted that the regen dosent works. I stopped it and decided to have a motorway run) The screenshot was taken several minutes after I started regen( you can see on the engine running time.) It actually improved by seeing the differential pressure 8.9kpa compared to 11kpa (2 minutes ago). After I went on the M1, the car did enter limp mode a few mils at 3rd & 60mph. But never enter limp again. The process time is much much shorter than previous times (10 stop-start period) Then I cleaned the error by OBD2 scanner. Here are the screenshot after all the works, please take attention on the DPF differential pressure The engine was on idle. These 2 were on 2000 rpm The diff pressure which is much lower than which before the DPF regeneration. I can feel each time after the DPF regen, the car throttle respond is improved. I do record the time that DPF problem occurred and the additive I added. I post it out as a reference. It looks like the DPF problem happens to me every 3000 mil. The recent time mileage is 107400. The regen test looks like this. The description is in Chinese but nothing important in it. My driving style is already change a lot from last time, always 5th@70mph, 6th@above 75mph. EGR cleaned and exhaust recircle error is always very low (0~10%). I still dont know how can I fix the DPF problem. i didnt try to update my ECU since the car was last serviced in lexus centre in 2010, the ECU might be out dated. I have call lexus and hope to get my ecu update soon. By the way, the TS does have a ECU upgrade function, maybe I can do it myself but I want to try lexus centre first. Does any one know the cost of ECU upgrade? The check with TS every several hundreds mils might help me to monitoring the DPF and tell me when add DPF cleaner.
  24. IS220D Mystery

    Hi All, I am at my wits end with a strange problem I have with my lexus. The car brings out white smoke intermittently. It doesn't smoke when you start it but when the engine gets warm and you are driving along, it may suddenly start smoking for about 20-30seconds and then stop. The drive is normal(fine) and there no warning lights coming up on the dash. I took it to a garage a few months ago and was told that there were no indications of any serious problems. I live in Chelmsford and would appreciate any recommendation of a good lexus garage. Thanks
  25. Hi everyone, I have been suffered from the DPF problem during months. I brought the SE-L in April 2016 with clock 100k mils. It came out the first time with my hard accelerating with the car in May. DPF was regenerated after I added the Wynns DPF cleaner and drove for 50mils on M1. It was a hard time, with many times of stop-start on hard shoulde.. After that, I didnt add any additives till now 15/09/2016 and the same problem shows again in the congesting M25. The OCD added additional 3000 mils (80% motorway driving, normally 6th & 70mph) since the last DPF treatment. (I found that the Wynn's is required every 3rd tank in the instructions) I did the same way as before, and it is now working well as last time. I also notice the improvement of my feeling in engine and the turbo lap. I think the DPF is mainly blocked. I am planning to add the Wynn's in the next few tanks then 3rd tank as it suggest in the instruction. I also think about the reasons of it. As my driving is mostly motorway, it's very weird that I still suffering from the DPF problem. After I solved the problem, I start to looking in the data that read from OBD2. I found that the fuel consumption is actually not very high in motorway count in Liter/hour (under 10L/h, unless during my regeneration 3rd gear/60mph is 25L/hours). There wasn't much heat generated during the motorway driving (6th gear). Not the least, the exhaust pipe is longer than my friends new mini SD, and the bottom of EGR is exposed underneath, which makes the heat radiate fast. What I want to do next is using exhaust heatshield to cover all the pipe after turbo and all the DPF. I dont know how much it could help. The winter is coming. I hope it could keep the DPF warm enough. Please leave any suggestion & comments. BW,
