What is the average lifespan of a car starter?

There is no true average. Conditions that can effect the life span include weather, climate and care of the vehicle and make/model. Most of the ones I've replaced were in the 10yr-15yr life span. I've noticed fords are more frequent due to how the starter engages(with their moveable field magnet design).

How do you change the rear brake light at the top of the rear door on a 2000 Lexus RX 300?

The center section of the upper area of the that encloses the upper light assembly needs to be removed. It is plastic and is clipped in so be careful. After you remove this section the light assembly may or may not be attached to this piece. You need to unattach it and remove the bulb which is a 21 18W D bulb, standard rear brake light bulb in most American cars. Replace bulb and replace assembly then reclip the plastic section to the door. Be careful the plastic clips can break.

How do you repair a Lexus SUV RX 300 rear brakes?

I assume that you are wanting to know how to change the rear brake pads. First, loosen, but do not remove, the lug nuts on the rear wheels. Second, put the rear end up on jacks so that the rear wheels are off the ground. Then remove the rear wheels. Then you are going to see the caliper. On the back of the caliper there is one bolt and a pin attaching the caliper to the main brake assembly. You can tell these from the other bolts because there is a rubber boot around them. Now, you are going to remove the bolt which is on the lower part of the caliper. Once that is removed, the whole caliper will pivot upwards exposing the brake pads (you may have to giggle it a little bit to break it free). The brake pads simply slide out and can be replaced with the new pads. You may have to pry the piston which is part of the caliper back in because you are inserting new brakes. A screwdriver or clamp is handy to help you do this. Now simply repeat these steps in reverse order and you have yourself a new set of brake pads. Good Luck!!

I assume that you are wanting to know how to change the rear brake pads. First, loosen but do not remove the lug nuts on the rear wheels. Second, you are going to need to put the rear end of the car on jacks and then remove the rear wheels. You are now going to be able to see the brake assembly. Locate the caliper (the piece that looks like it is clamped onto the rotor). The top of the caliper is held on by a pin and a bolt. You can tell these from other bolts because there is a rubber accordion-like boot surrounding them. Remove the bolt with the boot (on the lower part of the top of the caliper). Then giggle the top of the caliper and it should pivot upwards exposing the brake pads. The brake pads are held on by clamps so simply wiggle the pads to remove them. You can now insert your new pads in the same way that the old pads were situated. Next you are going to need to push the piston of the caliper back in so that there is room for your new pads. A screwdriver or clamp can help you achieve this. Now all you need to do is pivot the caliper back down, bolt it on, do the same to the other side, put on the wheels, lower the car, and you have yourself a new set of rear brakes. FYI, when you start the car, pump your brakes a few times so that the pistons are compressed once again against the brake pads. Good Luck!!

Where is the variable valve timing gear on a Lexus rx300?

There isn't one. The components of the VVT are the PCM power train control module, 2 oil control valves, an oil filter for each OCV, and an intake camshaft sprocket/actuator assembly. If your check engine light is on and it's pointing toward VVT issues I would check each OCV filter screen. That is often the culprit.

How long should brakes last on Lexus RX 300?

As with the brakes on any vehicle, the lifespan of the brakes is very dependent upon how, where, and in what environmental conditions the vehicle is driven as well as how well the vehicle is maintained. The type of brakes used also have an impact, organic, semi-metallic, or metallic linings have different rates of wear (organic is shortest, metallic is longest) 2-5 years should not be an unreasonable expectation under average conditions using semi-metallic brake linings.

How do you change the spark plugs in a '99 Lexus RX 300?

I can't tell you the proper way which I believe involves removing several items like the alternator and possibly the intake manifold and then unsecuring the engine and rotating it forward. I can tell you the way I did it. The first time it took me 2 hrs, the 2nd time it me 1.5 hrs so it is a matter of figuring out the little things.

1. Remove the plastic cowl on the top of the engine. Hint, after taking the 3 hex-head screws out the "Lexus" emblem screws out. 2. The front 3 spark plus are easy to remove, unplug the coil packs. 3. Unscrew the retaining bolt with a 10mm wrench. 4. Pull the coil pack straight out. 5. Use a spark plug socket and extension and unscrew the spark plugs. Reverse these steps to replace. Note: Plug gap is 44 and I would use irridium plugs. Another hint is to use silicon spray into the coil pack fittings - both the spark plug end and the electrical fitting end. A little silicon into the spark plug socket before putting in the spark plug will allow the socket to release easier when retracking the extension and socket. 6. The back three plugs are much more difficult. I removed the cruise control cable and mounting bracket from the throtle body. I also removed the PVC tubing from the left side of the intake manifold. You should then be able to insert each of your hands into the respective openings, you pretty much have to perform the rest of the steps blindly. The space is tight but I have done it 3 times now and can say that it can be done and probably easier then the factory method. 6. This will be the hardest part, unplug the the coil packs. 7. Unscrew the retaining bolt with a 10mm wrench. 8. You won't be able to pull the coil packs straight out but you can get them out but move slowly so as to not damage the coil packs - they are around $100 a piece. 9. It will be easier to get at the spark plugs if you first drop in the spark plug socket, then insert the socket extension. Make sure you get the extension plugged into the socket and then the socket secured on the spark plug. Then wiesel a socket wrench in and plug it into the extension. To crack loose the spark plugs from the right side (socket wrench handle pointed to the right) you will push toward the firewall, on the left side (socket wrench handle pointed to the left) you will pull towards you. After cracking the spark plugs loose you should be able to remove the socket wrench and using your fingers on the end of the extension unscrew the plugs. 10. To reinstall the plugs insert the plug into the socket first and remember the silicon spray into the socket, then wiesel the plug, socket and extension into the spark plug hole. Tighten the spark plug as tight as possible with your fingers. Perform final tightening with the socket wrengh. 11. Replace the coil packs and remember the silicon spray. Secure them with the retaining bolts. 12. Plug in the coil pack electrical fittings. 13. Reinstall the cruise control mounting bracket and cable, reinstall the PVC tubing and the the engine cowl and you are done.

How often do you change the oil on Lexus IS250?

You normally change the oil on anycar every 2500-3000 miles. If there were a special condition it would be stated in the manual.

You can easily drive 5,000 miles between changes on modern engines with todays oil and filters. The 3,000 mile oil change is only recommended by people wanting to make money off it. Read your owner's manual and see when they say to change it. Probably around 7,000 miles.

The 2000 Lexus RX300 takes a 24" drivers side, 21" passenger side and a 16" rear wiper. See sources and related links below for more information. Since there are over 22 different wiper arm attachments, do not buy wipers just by length only.
