Hi all - I am a relatively new owner (6 mos) of a 2002 GS300 with 75K. Although milae is low she has spent the past 7 yrs in the NYC boroughs. It has seen its share of potholes and the bumpers have done a lot of kissing.
Here’s my issue.... she hesitates when accelerating and is not consistent when traveling up steady inclines. I think it could be a fuel delivery problem.
I have tried the as treatments, cleaned the air filter and scanned for trouble codes. At this point, outside of plugs, I believe it could possibly be the fuel filter.
• Can anyone tell me details about the location and changing the fuel filter?? any firsthand stories or nightmares to share??
• How about fuel line clips, like on the old (1990-98+) American GM Buicks to deal with..how about special tools?
• Should I tackle myself or bring to mechanic?
Thanks in advance.
