to be honest, i've seen Toyota vehicles with 200,000 miles on the original timing belt. However, I have seen the water pumps on RX400h's begin to leak at mileages as low as 70,000 miles.

I highly doubt the engine needs to be removed. This engine is very similar to an LS460, which starters go bad on quite frequently. The passenger side exhaust manifold needs to come off, but once...

Very common problem, It is usually the bank 2 oil control valve that has gone bad. An easy way to confirm this is to swap between bank 1 and 2.

Bank 1 is firewall side, bank 2 is radiator side.

I'm sure the oversized rims on the new LX570 doesn't help. That is a lot of rotational mass to slow down. I wouldn't doubt a TSB coming out in the next few months to address it.
