Default 5 speed RPMs

No not even close

40 MPH is 2000 RPM in 4th
50 MPH is below 2000 in 5th (bottom)
65 MPH should be about 2500

well it's a funny story . i went to visit someone , and rite next door was the es 300 parked with no plates on it . the owner came outside and was getting into his new 07 maxima . i asked him what he was going to do with it . he said he wasn't trying to make any money on it . because the auto shop said it had a leak in the engine , and the shop said it wasn't worth fixing . i offered him 1,100 , and had it towed to the shop . spent about $ 250 in parts to fix the problem . im still feeling the car out . i just had it for a month , but it runs great .

as far as the prodution date im not to sure what it is , or where to find out about that .

Wow thats an early one. Mines practally a 93. Any ways what part in the engine did you fix? Im asking because if its a head gasket, I got my ES 300 a few years ago. It had 58,000 miles on it. I went to do the timing belt at around 80K or so. It now has 105K. When I took the cover off the t-belt and water pump looked brand new, so i decided to leave it alone. Now i heard of the recall on the 3vz engine regarding head gaskets and ive been wondering if my engine has been apart before. I mean it runs mint and if something breaks ill fix it but it runs great.

yes it was by the head . i think im going to change my timing belts and water pump . because i don't know it the last owner did it or not , and i have 130k right now .

im also thinking about puting a navigation system in the car . i can't deal with the radio system in this car . it's time for some upgrades

yea i have a 92 5spd, bought it from the original owner with 78k original on it, and all the paperwork for servicing and repair from Lexus. I love this car and everybody who sees its a stick almost craps themselves. A very fun car to drive and still some luxury.
