Customer Question
When i come to...

When i come to a stop then take off there is a drag,car hesitates then frees up and drives fine -doesnt happen every time i stop only some times

Mechanic's Assistant: The Lexus Mechanics require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost.

How much

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Lexus?

2002 rx 300

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RX 300 yourself? What have you tried so far?

We changed the total brake system rotors pads etc..

Mechanic's Assistant: How old are the rotors? How many miles are on the car?

The rotors are new! the car has 105000

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Im not sure if its the trans or calipers-but something is causing this drag,rummble

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

so to isolate this issue you would want to put the car up on jack stands or a lift and inspect the wheels for resistance when mimicking a take of situation, also check all wheels for resistance and turn those by hand to make sure your brakes are releasing.

so can you explain this hesitation more? does it seem like the car is misfiring or your not getting enough gas? how long is the hesitation? do you try to floor it and is there any changes?
