i like to have everything easily accessible in my phone. plus i’m not all that familiar with auto repair/servicing so i have to get a tad OCD about it. if i am not mistaken this is a mashup of information from the mud FAQ’s formatted through the owners manual information.

not sure if anyone will find it useful but through to post it. obviously if experienced LC/LX owners have corrections or suggestions i’m all ears.

formatting is a little screwed up in the cut and paste but if anyone is interested i could post the text document after i proof it.

if something similar is out there already i’d be interested in a link.

Thanks for putting this together!

There is probably some overlap in the tech data, but below is a quick reference guide that I pulled off of MUD a few years back. As a suggestion, I would try to format your list into a double sided reference card. Laminate it, keep it in the truck, and you'll always have it at your fingertips.

Additionally, attached is the dealer brochure spec. sheet for the '97 LX450.

thanks man. printed those two out. the lx brochure is nice to have.

so if anyone is interested i proofing that i will probably print it out doublesided card stock. as it stands i have mingles’ here which i am studying.
one question popped up. @mingles are we talking 1.6 liter between the marks on the dipstick or 2.0? i’m tracking oil loss now and this is pretty much how i am doing it. so far i have been working with 2 liters and not 1.6...
thoughts?

I knew I had seen that somewhere before.

Thanks for the reminder!
