So the CEL is still on? It's usually not a good idea to drive months with the lights on, there is a problem that needs to be fixed. OK, so it could be just about anything. While the other owner said it was the O2 sensors, it might not be in this case. If you don't want to be hustled, go to any local auto parts store and ask them to scan the car for the fault codes. 4 Digit codes, and post them back here and we can better be able to tell you what the issue is. It also sounds like you need to find a mechanic you can trust. Ask family and friends on who they take their vehicles to and have them diagnose the issue why your Lexus is giving you trouble. Also if you can't find a garage like that, then I always suggest going to 2-3 places for an estimate before you decide on what to fix and how much to pay. Good Luck!
