suddenly not responsive and shifting is off
My Lexus LS400 stuttered for a few seconds when pulling into a parking lot. After a
meal the car started fine but didn't respond well when I went to pull out onto the road.
The car was very sluggish, not responding to the gas pedal. Then it stalled going
around a corner when I stepped on the pedal and at a stoplight, too. It also wouldn't
shift well, yet when I shifted manually the car ran well through the first three gears.
This car has been running beautifully and the problem occurred like a switch was
flipped. Can someone tell me what's going on with this car?
Get your diagnostics...okay the '93 Lexus has OBD-I....have the trouble codes read and report~...ANY autoparts store does this for you for free...some are friendlier about it...NAPA has always been very co-operative with me~
really sounds like a vacuum leak or sudden destruction of the diaphragm in your fuel pressure regulator~....techron (don't trust stuff that 'cleans' , cleans away critical components, like the flexible diaphragm of the fuel pressure regulator~ this might be/could be the cause....good luck provin' that in court~
a faulty fuel pressure regulator will issue NO info to the OBD-I system~
Just got back from checking trans fluid and that looks fine. Thanks for taking time to help me j_r. I appreciate your time and knowledge. You wouldn't happen to work in the Detroit area would ya?
not Detroit...Milwaukee for eighteen years...then escaped to California...wine country...perfect year round...beautiful sun~ you must apply suction to the fuel pressure regulator to see if it's regulatin' or torn diaphragm~
