The car accelerated to the left and crossed sped across 8 lanes of the highway, including over a median before it spun around and jerked to a stop in the left lane of the West bound lanes facing East. I feel it is only fair that Toyota accept responsibility for their seemingly never ending list of wrongdoing and take immediate steps to correct ongoing issues. Is the clicking noise continous or intermittent after stopping engune? The accident was reported to the police. For the next few days I had experienced muscle pain, stiffness and poor night sleep. Between my accident and knowing both of my parents are currently driving vehicles that are unsafe to drive, by Toyota's own admissions, I have been and continue to experience significant distress. Does noise appear only intermittently? If it is different, can you please eleborate and give a detailed description.
In some cases you need to pull over immediately to prevent damage while in others you merely need to tighten you gas cap next time you stop in order to reset the service engine soon light. If it is not the above, can you describe the noise in more detail? This will help your mechanic evaluate the issue. I've heard it in parkling lots on old junkers but not on a Lexus. The letter further explained that they did not currently possess the parts needed for the repairs and would be in touch in the future, no indication of the expected time frame was provided. We will never process your order before verifying with you the engine information!.
Both of my parents also currently drive Lexus vehicles, and both models were noted to have similar issues. I was hit head on by another driver. The car probably would have landed on the train tracks; but, fortunately, it went into the fence which is used to support a shelter that shields commuters from inclement weather. She was going forward at about 1 mph with her foot on the brake pedal in order to slow the car down as she was approaching the curb at the front end of the parking space. Lexus has a contractual arrangement with a vendor to inspect the event data recorder edr installed in the car.
My questions above are directed at the cooling fans. For example, does it happen when you accelerating, driving on the highway or does it appear at low speeds? With her foot on the brake pedal, the car suddenly lunged forward and went over the curb and into a metal and wooden fence. After being warmed up it is fine and after subsequent starts it does not make that noise. To buy a particular engine, you may or call our sales canter at 1-866-612-9788 with the stock number. The driver was informed that the edr inspection report for this incident essentially addressed what happened with the air bags, none of which had deployed during the accident. The clicking noise is emitted when exhaust components contracts while cooling down. The vehicle was towed to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the crankshaft pulley fractured and would need to be replaced.
I was not injured, but the car was a total loss. Quite a number of vehicles of different makes would have the exhaust clicking intermittently after turning off engine.

It is never easy to detect noise problems online unless a good description of the noise is made.
Melling recommends a new timing belt with every engine rebuild as well as periodic belt replacement for high mileage vehicles. If the noise is from the center pipe, it seems strange that it should be clicking for extended periods and clicking rapidly. I purchased the car used from the local toyoto dealer and have taken it back there for all service. My body went forward and backward violently. Though the Toyota dealership might be trained to perform Lexus repairs but they might not have the attended to many Lexus vehicles and have not encountered such problems before. If all else fails I guess I'll have to take it to a Lexus dealership although the toyota dealership where I purchased it said they were trained to maintain this car. Do you have any idea what the approximate cost should be and do you agree with the mechanic? Belt replacement is a small investment compared to an engine replacement due to a damaged, stretched or broken timing belt.
Noise are never easy to diagnose online so I need to understand the problem better and hope you can fill me in. Furthermore, my mother recently received a letter indicating her car was being recalled due to the passenger air bag issues, the letter stated while Toyota would offer what they considered to be a suitable fix at no charge. After replacing the drive belts which did not help the noise, I was told there were cracks in the center pipe of the exhaust system. While driving various speeds, the steering wheel became difficult to maneuver. The last opinion stated the noise is coming from the center pipe in the exhaust system and not recommeded that customer replace. I was told they did not reccommend repairing it because it was so costly and it would not effect the driveability.
Lexus informed the driver that they could not provide any further assistance or guidance to determine the extent of any parts or design defects. The damaged fence is owned by the union pacific railroad. The vehicle went forward and fell approximately about 5 feet to the other parking level and violently hit the back of a pickup truck which was parked. I am also incredibly disgusted by their history of victim blaming and would love to do whatever I can to bring attention to this issue. I am not sure if that is the noise you are referring to. I am the only owner of the car and I had it serviced regularly over the past 13 years. The manufacturer was notified of the failure.
The vehicle was not repaired. Hi Sharonkeehan, Thank you for the donation. Also recall on the issue but not the vehicle I own; since I experienced the same problems I feel that the recall should have included my vehicle and a refund due. Each belt is manufactured from quality synthetic polymers to provide resistance to heat, stretching, belt shear, climate conditions, and abrasion to assure dependable operation throughout the belts service life. I had my seat belt on. The driver suffered a back injury and required medical attention, medication, and physical therapy.
Are you able to verify from which portion of the engine is the noise coming from? I am aware of the significant fines and suits settled against Toyota in the past, but they continue to seem unfazed despite their cars putting all of our lives at risk daily. Please make sure to read the engine description below and in particular match the engine size with your vehicle's motor specifications. It would be good to get a second opinion, at least a clear explanation of the problem should be given. I want to thank you so much for trying to help me - as you can sense-I am completely out of my comfort zone. The incident was reported to Lexus in torrance, ca. Not sure replacement of the pipe will cure the noise.
