What to do about it?

I am having similar issues with my '02 UL. I hear what I believe is the air compressor at start-up or at lights when stopped more frequently and at a louder volume. Question is, can anything be...

Whether '02 came with radar or laser (the display says radar ready) the question is why the regular cruise control after bypassing the sensor cruise doesn't work.

The sensor on my '02 UL w/120k was cracked when I acquired the car at around 50k 4+ years ago. I use the cruise only a couple of times a year and the manual override worked perfectly until this...

I think Lynzoid is correct. While there was no need for stainless steel over regular hoses, I wanted to try them. For about $50 a set, $100 for all four, the price was reasonable. If I was going...

I found it on Amazon after failing to find it on E-bay. $27.38 with Amazon Prime free shipping for cable and software. Over 20 very positive and informative reviews. For under $30, why not?

I put them on my '02 UL. They are a "nice to" as opposed to a "need to" change. My brake fluid was turning black quickly and I suspected some contamination. I flushed the entire system throughly...

Also curious about the color of the fluid. If contaminated, my guess is the fluid would turn dark. In any case, if you go to the trouble of replacing hoses, try stainless steel. Not absolutely...

Since you said the ashtray is in the same place as the LS400, I believe you may be looking in the wrong place. The ashtray is located to the right of the shift lever, on the "deck" of the console. ...

Dealer charged about $160. I am not sure what you mean by "hang and drained". I presume it means "was it a complete fluid exchange?".

As far as I could tell, yes. He loaded up the machine with...

I had all of the trans fluid replaced in my '02 UL with approx. 115k last week. The transmission is noticeably smoother. I found out that many Lexus dealers use a Valvoline equivalent rather than...

How long does it take your car to warm up?

Just curious, how long it takes your car to warm up? In the Michigan winter, it takes my '02 UL about 8 to 10 minutes to completely warm up. A little heat begins to appear after 3 to 4 minutes.
