    1996 Lexus LX 450 Spongey Brake Pedal Issue

    Somewhere there is a thread where you have to activate ABS, bleed brakes, (do this several times). 463K miles! wow! I would replace all rubber brake hoses and check the booster and its vacuum hose (cracks/leaks). There are reports that brake boosters fail out of the box, especially if you get...

    Scaring the power steering gear will cause that noise. It is documented in several threads.

    Have you seen an 80 this rusted out?

    Be patient. The right cruiser will come. Not to steer you clear of the 80 series but test drive the GX470. Prices are coming down on these rigs and the 2UZ is a wonderful engine.

    Bannana needs help. 30mm crank bolt siezed?

    X2 on the fully charged battery. Is the breaker bar tied under the frame? I disconnected the main distributor wire (just incase the engine would start). Give it more than a second bump. The sound scared the $hit out of me when I bumped the starter! Also, I did not use a SST to tighten it up. An...
