Yes....this does sound like a kinked or restricted vent pipe.

Has it been like this, since you bought the car ?

Did you mention this whilst still under warranty ?

Have you ever had any accident damage or repairs in this vicinity of the vehicle ?

I suggest you go back to your main dealer and try to get this rectified under warranty, as this is a potentially hazardous, and dangerous fire problem.

Due to the temptation not to fit the pump nozzle fully in to the tank spout, to speed up the filling procedure.
And possibly then a blow-back of fuel, over yourself, and then the fire risk.

Lexus normally have a very high standard to maintain, especially where safety is concerned.

Get an appointment with the service manager, and do not be fobbed off.

$2OOO. sounds a ridiculous cost to rectify this problem.

Let me know your thoughts?

A FixYa rating would be appreciated.... Thank you !

Good Luck !

the location and type of noise u hear is most likely coming from the electric blend door temperature control actuator.when they fail the ting gears inside make a clicking noise like this, the location you gave is dead on to where this part is located.

Hi, The first thing to do is take off the hub caps & see if one or more wheel nuts have come off! If that is not the answer then check if one of the brake pads has come adrift. The only thing easy left is the wheel bearing, should that not solved then you have a half shaft problem and you need to take that out look at the teeth on part that goes into the Diff the teeth should be straight if not then you need new half shaft & if one has gone you can be assured so has the opposite wheels well on they way to going or your Diff needs renewing & thats expensive. Please leave me feed back: Malcolm Campbell, Thanks.

i would buy the factory part and have a local mom and pop shop replace it. its not rocket science to replace a converter. i would even have someone else troubleshoot the code they read to see if that is in fact the root cause of the code.

The minimum compression required is 95 psi, below this there is no good combustion, incusive the spark plug gets wet in gasoline
If this condition exists, you should check the piston rings and cylinder surface

Check the Earth cable in the boot see that it's clean no white bits around the connection or the join. Cheers, Malcolm Campbell.

YES, you have to investigate what is throwing your valve timing off. That could be anything from a vacuum leak to clogged injectors, bad plugs, sensor ect. Have the car analyzed to find the cause. There can be many causes. Good luck
