Ididit: The device has a robust o-ring. Wiggle it back and forth while pulling straight out; it should come.

Thanks. already got it done by using a basin wrench. quite easy.

UPDATE: it turns out that the bank I first pull out by basin wrench is bank 1. I just pull out the bank 2 by hand, just like what you describe. Thanks for your tip.

Hello, I am new to the lexus rx 300 but i am not a newby at mechanic work. I have had the same code(p1354) and I replaced both OCV valves this morning and now that code is gone and I have two new ones, p0125, and p1133. My rx 300 started with twelve codes at first and i have replaced the thermostat, radiator, and coil packs with new spark plugs as well. I have been going down the list one code at a time. I have also changed the oil and filter and checked to make sure my fans are running good, but the vehicle is still getting hotter than normal. Can anyone help?

Just this morning I had p1354 in addition to random multiple misfires on cylinders 2, 4, and 6.

7 codes total

2 for each cylinder misfiring and 1 for the 1354

Brakes lost their boost and were stiff/weak

When in neutral engine rev'd to 1300rpm

At a stop the engine vibrated like crazy

Lost overdrive and essentially went into limp mode

CEL blinked every now and again but was always on.



I bought a new "left" OCV (oil control valve) and it runs like new again.


If you have these codes and symptoms...replace your OCV and 99% chance you'll have taken care of the problem.

How old is your water pump?

It's also ALWAYS possible to have a defective new thermostat. I've seen it happen more than once in my 15+ years of wrenching.

It's sad that you have to school a Toyota parts guy on the endless cross references between our Lex's and similar Toyo's.

I had this same issue. Did you replace your air filter? Because the air intake is above 3 of the back 3 spark plugs. When they dont get enough air it throws off the valve timing and causes a laundry list of problems.

Default 2001 Es 300 issues

Hello everyone,
New to the forum and new to repairs here but i recently had a very similar issue as @erics99rx except minus the overdrive issue. I was hoping someone could explain to me where I find the ocv and the ocv filter and how I go about replacing/checking them for damage.
Thanks

There is a list of DIY (sticky) and you will find the right link in there. Although core engines are the same, access and other things may be different.

Bank 1 is the solenoid on the right, and nearest to the firewall. Bank 2 is the left solenoid, and closest to the radiator. It was $63 with free shipping and a genuine Lexus part showed up, not too bad. I saw some other guys paid ~100 at the dealership so I sprung for the cheaper one.

Got the part in today, it took about 10 minutes to pop in there and tighten the retaining bolt. The car immediately ran great, highly recommend this job as a DIY. Thanks again guys for the good info, hope I helped someone too.
Just want to clarify: I think RockAuto does in fact offer this part. At least for a 1999 Lexus RX300, it's listed under Engine > Variable Timing Solenoid.
