The tech only tightened the 2 screws in the back of the gasket where it was leaking. He did not want to tighten all the gasket screws telling me that might do more harm then good.

I refoamed my rear sub 4 years ago, but it started rattling about a year ago. I bit the bullet and went for an OEM ML subwoofer. The rear seat was a pain to remove and I didn't want to take a chance...

Transmission leak?

I found some newly dripped oil on my garage floor this morning from my 2001 LS430 with 117,000 miles. From what I am able to see from crawling underneath.....it is coming from the bottom of a tube...

If you are doing both sides, definitely replace the plugs. The passenger side is more time consuming.

There are still select size Primacys available if you search. I was lucky and got a new set last month for just a few bucks because of premature sidewall cracking on my current MXV4s. For the price...

Please let us know how you do with treadwear. My major concern when reading about the Premier is the significant reduction in tread depth from the Primacy from 11/32nd to 8/32nds with the Premier....

Funny thing is that whenever my doors start creaking, I grease up the seal that runs across the top of the window and the sound disappears. I've never even touched the seal you have pictured, but I...

After 5 years of ownership, I replaced my subwoofer with OEM for a little under 300 bucks and all is well. No rewiring or anticipation of blown amps. All is well and the music sounds great.

More than likely, regardless of the age of our cars, the first generation (2001-2003) will probably settle around ($6,000-$9,000) regardless of miles within the next few years. The 2004-2006 might be...

Takata air bags

Does anyone know with any certainty whether any of our LS430s from 2001-2006 have the Takata air bags? If not, who was the air bag manufacturer for our cars?

I have to say, that many of the original poster's issues have not appeared during my ownership. Yes, the subwoofer is a given, and creaking from control arm bushings will occur. Of course spark plugs...

It's crazy how a company with their most popular tire decides to replace it. I'm not thrilled about going from 11/32nds for the MXV4 to 8/32nds regardless of the hype about better wet traction when...

I manually fold my mirrors every time I park. So far so good on my 2001. I don't want to jinx myself, but every electrical accessory on this old timer works as it should.
