This is why the 2013 RX350's were recalled for a brake actuator reflash. This is exactly what the vehicles were doing. I recall seeing one come into my dealer with 86...

Lexus master tech here,

You are putting too much thought into this. Basically if you see bubbles in the sight glass while the a/c is on at idle, it is under charged. Your best bet would be to take...

Lexus master tech here,

Believe it or not, that is part of your upper thermostat housing. A leak there is very common, as Lexus/Toyota only used an RTV compound to seal it instead of a gasket. It would be a good idea to...
