This list is close to being accurate. Keep in mind it is not purely US models. The year ranges given can refer to models sold that MY but in other markets (e.g, the ES300 year range is clearly...

This may surprise you, but ES330 = 3.3l engine. ES350 = 3.5l engine. ;)

The 3.3l is called internally the 3MZ-FE engine (the "2MZ" was a smaller 2.5l sold overseas and not in the US). 3.0l =...

No, there is no recall on your car.

You have a 330. Not a 350. MZ vs GR engine.

Were you doing the gauge reading at idle? The specs are supposed to be at around 1200 to 1500 IIRC, with air flow over the fins (fan on). That is usually the difference between reading correctly (on...

The sign you describe sounds like a failing VVT valve solenoid or plugged cat (among other possibilities).

I would first pull the 02 sensors and bench test them. This can be done with a...

I don't know on these vehicles, but this is what I weighed when I re-did struts 2 years ago:

I think the 97 looks much worse.

It has more signs of various oil leaks, and a amateurish-looking re-seal to the rear of the Valve-cover on bank 2.

The oil cap on the '01 is not a deal-breaker....

They are mid-block beneath the exhaust manifolds. You can see them from underneath if you look around.

If you didn't go near any air bag sensors (not that likely IMO but it is the one thing I know that will kill the fuel pump), check you are actually not getting fuel. The pump is in the tank and if...

Yeah, it's just a personal thing and what you value. And how the tire behaves. 32 would be on the "comfort" end of the ride/mpg/handling matrix for my tires and usage. Comfort's a lot less...

I don't have garage space this weekend, and I don't want to leave it outside while the clearcoat dries and cures. Too humid/wet and too much pollen in the air. Also I...

It's going to depend a fair bit on tires and your local roads.

With A/S Touring tires and good local roads (no harsh winters here), 36 is the sweet spot on ours for ride/handling/mileage.
