Lexus Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Lexus Expert
Hello, what exactly is the issue you are dealing with?
Alright, have you been able to obtain any trouble codes?
Unfortunately I am not in a position to take phone calls currently, I can continue helping you through online chat, or I can opt out and offer your question up to another expert.
Ok, if you can get any trouble codes out of the computer that would be extremely helpful in diagnosing the issue. Are you able to scan it with a code reader or other scan tool?
Alright, im going to opt out and open this to other experts.
When you do get the engine running how does she run .
Do you see black smoke coming out the Exhaust .
When engine is running is the check engine light ON solid or flashes
Is the car driveable .
Okay good .
Do you think you could take a drive down to Autozone and get a Free code readout done .
Just go to the repair service shop and ask them to read the malfunction codes .
Take the code slip and let me know what the codes are .
This way i will be able to help you diagnose this issue.
okay sounds good keep me updated .
Was the check engine light ON when the engine is running like it was before as you stated.
As if the light is on then there must be a malfunction code stored, or you have a possible ECM malfunction
