Customer Question
Having problem starting it...

Having problem starting it some times, it will try to turn the engine but stops before it starts. Sometimes I have to try it a few times before it will start.

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

I replaced the battery few months back.

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

ES350 2007

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

So far I have replaced the battery but it is still acting up.

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

Is there a cost to talking to a mechanic?

Mechanic's Assistant: The Expert's answer will cost $10 to $100, depending on the issue type and time to respond. You'll see the exact amount on the next page and can decide then. It's way less expensive than face-to-face would cost. And you're covered by our 100% satisfaction guarantee.

hi there, how can I help you with this? did you want to know possible causes?

Lexus Mechanic: Steve, Automotive Expert replied 2 months ago

this is usually caused by a faulty fuel pump check valve or leaking fuel injector - basically something that allows fuel pressure to bleed off when the car is parked. This can be verified with a fuel pressure test where pressure is then monitored after the engine is shut off to determine if it is bleeding off or not.

if you need a good non dealer option to cut down on costs, check out www.bimmershops.com or www.bimrs.org for options.
