Having problems with your 2000 Lexus Gs 300 ?

2000 ES 300 won't go into overdrive. The check engine lite indicates that it's the Knock Sensors that need to be replaced which is going to be expensive. I don't want to change this then find out it's the transmission. Any other suggestions?

I have a 1990 ranger. transmission was replaced before i got the truck. the people i got the truck from said that changing the transmission didnt fix the problem. the problem is when i put it in reverse to make it go i have to rev it up to bout 4500 rpm or so and pat the gas. then it moves slow. if i park on a hill it takes reverse alot better. also when going forward it revs up to 5000 or so before changing some times it dont want to change then does it trough all gears. please up.

I want to know what is the problem, i have to change the whole transmission or there is any sensor damaged?


Hi and welcome to FixYa!\012\012You don't need to replace the whole transmission. I suspect that you have a faulty torque converter. If the torque converter is faulty the shifting of the car becomes sluggish. Torque converter and transmission f ... Nissan Frontier

I have 79 CJ-7 with an AMC 401 in it. The jeep was running fine at idol, but when i shifted and went to go forward the engine just stopped running. I have changed the fuel pump, changed the spark plugs and the wires, changed something in the distributor(I forgot what it was called), changed the fuel filter, rebuilt the carborator, and have messed with the timing via the distributor. However i do believe that it is the timing chain, but Im not quite sure and i dont want to take it to a shop and s


One way to check the chain is to bring the timing mark on the crank pulley around to 0 on the timing scale. Then check to see where the rotor in the distributor is pointing. It should be pointing to the #1 tower for that plug wire, or exactly 180 deg ... Jeep CJ7

I have a a peugeot 106 xn and am juist learning how to drive. whenever i'm at a traffic lights on a hill and want to start going, the engine tends to go out. I dont know whether i'm just going off the clutch too fast, which i don't think i am or whether it's the car itself? I didn't seem to find it that difficult in the car I was in with the driving instructor


More revs and slower off the clutch. Takes some practice, maybe having an instructor gives you a false sense of security. Listen to the engine, shoudl not dip down too much when you start to pull away. Vote for me, thanks :) ... 1991 Peugeot 405

I've got a '95 aurora that won't shift to 2nd or 3rd gear. I took shift assembly apart and checked shift solenoids and they tested fine. I dont have easy acces to a diagnostic computer. It was parked for a long time and I've noticed the parking brake is stuck on and I dont know if theres a saftey switch there to keep it from shifting or not. Any suggestions? well my 95 aurora is doing the same thing, it doesn't want to change gears! It's like somethings not telling the computer to switch gears.

This may work for you, I'm not sure about your fans, but in a 1992 Ford Ranger when I kept overheating in idle or after turning off it was the heater core, you may want to try bypassing core and you should be fine, of course this is a band-aid fix. Y ... 1995 Honda Accord

Running I have a 98 Century Limited. I believe it has a 3. (something engine). About a month ago I started smelling antifreeze. Could not find a leak. Then the car started running rough and acting like it wanted to stall (not all the time, if it sat it would not do it). A week later it started running hot (still cant find a leak).
