Default My new sexc400

All I'd like to say here to introduce myself is I used to drive a 04 honda accord and the amount of upgrading I did by going backwards 9 years is absolutely mind blowing. Im sticking with lexus till I die. Beautifully crafted machine in my hands for a reasonable price thanks to lovely depreciation!!

bought on 11/28/16
1995 with 97,323 miles bought for 5K!
I'd also like to thank alot of you (obviously not personally) to who helped me out with tough questions that had me stumped.. mostly because I do not know very much about cars but this is a wonderful site where people can get together with the same burning passion for Lexus and help each other continue on driving these beautiful beasts. Thanks to this site I've already saved around 500$ in repair costs! Ive already had to replace the radiator (which I found a link on here for half the price of other sites) and thermostat due to cooling problems I was unaware of when I bought it but everything sings in this year of 2017 and I hope to bring this whip into the 200,000s as I've seen they can make it with the right love. And I plan to do so with some of your guys help!!! Thanks to all and continue on CLUBLEXUS!

Default Greetings!

Hello,

I just purchased a 1993 Lexus SC400 from an individual off Facebook. He told me the motor had recently been rebuilt with roughly 60K on the motor. I am not sure if that is accurate as there is no paperwork to show. The car has leather seats, and sunroof. There are little Knick knack things wrong with the car such as window motors, the passenger side door canít be open from the outside. Numerous rattles sounds from the interior. I think only one speaker is working properly. There is also a whining noise coming from passenger glovebox which sounds like a vacuum leak or something possible with the blower motor. I also discovered that the windshield wipers only have one very slow speed. Being that itís a 93 I accepted there was going to be little gremlins and parts failing. The ďbodyĒ has ~ 203K miles on it. I fell in love with the car as soon as I got the privilege to drive it. I am new to automotive in general, but I need to find a healthy hobby rather than programming all day. I will be driving this daily, and I plan to put money in it as I go. Also which was really weird is the back passenger side where the long amber turn signal is was a bulb that was completely rusted and seized. I have to try my luck and find a whole new socket, and splice it in. Ebay is going to be my friend for the foreseeable future.

Hello all - I'm Patrick - I've only been lurking around over the last couple of years and never really introduced myself
My (ex)wife and I picked up our girl back over 10 years ago - I've put a LOT of blood sweat and tears into her
I've replace 90% of the suspension, massaged the stock air box to get better cold air and upgraded the main engine wiring harness twice - otherwise shes a regular stock cruiser in need of more TLC and hopefully new paint in the near future
Now that I have my girl back on the road from a junk timing belt install, she's all mine!



Engine bay as she sits now with salvage LS covers - 256k miles and still running strong!


Interior in need of more TLC

Those are nice rims! What are they and what tires are you running?

Also your engine bay looks really clean!

Thank you! - I've been working on it for a long time
When I originally redid the wiring harness, I relocated the 3 main sensors and the diagnostic port to the firewall
This cleaned up the top of the motor real well - not to mention the cleaning I did while I was working on it over the last 6 months

Those are Monte Titano MT7 rims in 19x8, with Pirelli Cinturato P7 235/40/19s - stock ride height with KYB G-Force struts
They just clear the front inner fender liners
Got a pretty good deal on them too - they were second hand but brand new, still in the wrapper
The are supposedly +55 on the offset, but I don't believe it

Just bought this one........... 79k miles.
Need to get it towed 400 feet today.
Owned by a female senior 5 doors down.
Has been sitting in the same spot since 2007.
Was running when parked. Should be an adventure.
Filled the tires, replaced the batt. But as its sat so long will need some work to get up and running.
Plan to clean everything 1st. Super dingy from sitting out.
But rust free & all orig.
Is there a free online manual anywhere? I searched here and struck out. Thanks!

Talking ****newb alert****

Hey guys! I'm Rob and I've been lurking this forum for info for about a year. After a ton of research and being patient, last night, I finally made one of my 'dream car own's' a reality. I was able to acquire an all original, 143k mile gold SC400. I've always wanted an SC since I was a kid but never saw myself in a 400, but as of late, I felt the 400 fit the bill better to suite my needs. This is a completely new platform for me than I'm used to lol but I'm very much looking forward to learning as much as I can and enjoy this car as much as I can. It's in really great shape. The typical power steering fluid leak is there(havnt gotten the chance to diag fully yet), and the main cluster needles are out. Feels like the front struts are bad, and there's a misfire under light-moderate load between 1200-2000rpms while cruising around 40-50mph. But other than that she's in great shape! Lmao I'm really excited to do more research and get her running 100% mechanically again. I look forward to being an active member and sharing as much knowledge as I possibly can from my experiences. Pics coming when I get to it lol

Hey Everyone,

I own a 1997 SC400. I found this forum earlier after looking for a solution to my broken passenger door. Just ordered the part and excited to finally get that fixed. Seems like a great community here and I'm hoping to learn more and have a good time.

Obligatory picture below:

Hi, i'm Aaron. I've owned my sc3 for 2 months now, and she's had a rough 2 months. she started off in OK shape. Now she's got a welded diff, window weld bushings, stripped interior, redneck abs delete, cut & modded knuckles, 4 tires with wires showing, alignment issues, chopped springs, a slight trans leak, a slight oil leak, intermittent ps, and a couple sockets modified to keep the steering rack in place. Probably a few things i'm missing, but I think you'll all get the idea......My name is Aaron, and I have a "drift cheap car as cheap as possible" problem. Hi guys!
