1999 Lexus es 300

Asked by Jul 03, 2016 at 07:33 AM about the 1999 Lexus ES 300

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 99 Lexus Es 300. It has Ben a great car.
About a week ago it's starting to develop a stutter
in the drive train wen I start to take off. I replaced
the plugs in the car cause to me it felt like there
was a plug fouled out. So I put new ones in but it's
still doing the same. The RPMs are running high
also. At 70 mph my gauge hits 4000 RPMs. I swear
it feels like a miss in the motor wen at a slow
speed or sitten still. At a fast speed it kinda clears
out or ya just can't feel it o don't know. Does
anybody have an idea wat could be my issue.
Thank you

Higher than normal RPM at speed may indicate a problem with the transmission. Have you checked the transmission fluid recently? How many miles on this Lexus?
