Car leans on rear passenger side
Car leans on the rear passenger side had a sensor put on but still leans do I need a strut u think and wat kind I want the factory ride that's on there but don't know wat strut to order if that's the problem
My car has 155000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Experienced mechanics share their insights in answering this question :
I beleive that this vehicle has air suspension on all four wheels. If your vehicle is sagging on only one corner of the vehicle, it is likely that the air strut on that particular corner has a leak. The air strut will require replacement in order to resolve this issue. I would recommend having this issue resolved as soon as possible in order to prevent damage to the compressor. The compressor will run excessively with a leak in the system because it thinks that the air bags are not aired up as much as they should be.
How to Identify and Fix Common car Problems ?
Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced mechanics :
2003 Lexus LS430 transmission problems could include shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood.
This sensor or switch is typically mounted on the side of the transmission and screws into the body of the transmission to detect in which gear the transmission is engaged.
Headroom (front/rear) 967/964 mm (38.1/38.0 in.) Legroom (front/rear) 1118/954 mm (44.0/37.6 in.) Shoulder Room (front/rear) 1481/1479 mm (58.3/58.2 in.)
For the first four generations, all LS models featured V8 engines and were predominantly rear-wheel-drive.
What are the most common Lexus problems? The most common problems experienced by Lexus owners are oil leakage, melting dashboards and door panels, repeated illumination of the Check Engine light, PCM storage of certain codes, and airbag-related issues.
This thing could easily go 500,000 miles. It is a joy to drive and I plan on owning mine for another 20 years. I have an LS 460 that is just as fantastic, but I`m still drawn to this car. You honestly cannot compare this to any other vehicle on the road.
Common signs include harsh or improper shifting, cruise control not working, and the Check Engine Light coming on.
This one was an Ultra Luxury, meaning it came with features falling only just short of the newest luxury cars. The air vents wafted automatically, it had heated and cooled seats, four-zone climate control, an incredible stereo, and an early form of laser-based adaptive cruise control.
The LS430 Powertrain isn`t Just Reliable – it is Also Powerful. The LS430 features a 4.3L petrol V8 coded as the 3UZ-FE. If you know your Toyotas well, you will recognize the UZ engine code as the indicator to some of the most reliable engines ever made.
Lexus says the 3950-pound car will quick-step to 60 in just 6.3 seconds—0.3 second quicker than Lexus claimed for last year`s model, which we clocked at 6.4 seconds to 60.
Engine/transmission: The Lexus LS 430 comes with a standard 4.3-liter V-8 engine that develops 278 horsepower at 5,600 revolutions per minute and 312 foot-pounds of torque at 3,400 rpm. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that also can be shifted manually.
Now, you know your vehicle sends power to both the front and rear wheels, so it is either AWD or 4WD. To figure out which one it is, pop the hood and locate the engine. If your engine is transversely mounted, which means it sits sideways under your hood, this means your vehicle is AWD, not 4WD.
Lexus transmissions can last anywhere between 250,000 and 300,000 miles.
An engine that is hesitating to accelerate is most likely dealing with a fuel/air mixture that is too lean. Engine`s that are running inefficiently will begin to show signs like hesitation which will only become worse over time.

I can’t roll the rear passenger window up from either the drivers side or the passenger side. Could it be the regulator rather than the switches?
Hi there. If you are hearing a clicking sound as the window is trying to roll up or down, then either the regulator motor is burned and needs replaced or the track that the window rides on is broken. If you need further assistance with your passenger window motor not working, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
I did my brakes on my santa fe all except the rear passenger rotor. this morning the e brake on the rear passenger side locked up
The cable that you are referring to is made of ordinary steel and thus is subject to a lot of rust and corrosion. If rusted, it is possible that the cable is simply failing to retract in the cable sheath, even though you have released the emergency park. If you would like this e-brake failure to be inspected and resolved, the recommended service is parking brake cable replacement. The responding certified mechanic will inspect the e-brake system and if the cable is faulty, recommend replacement. If the fault is not in the cable, but instead in another system component, of course the mechanic will alternatively identify the other fault. If you have additional questions, do not hesitate to follow up.
After unlocking the car from the drivers side, if the passenger door is opened before the key is put in the car the alarm goes off.
The key should only unlock the driver door with one turn and unlock all of the doors with two turns. If the passenger door is unlocking when the driver door is turned with one turn or if the alarm is still set if the driver door is turned two times, then the Immobilizer System Module needs replaced if you are intending on not using a key fob or you will need to get a key fob to manually turn off the Immobilizer System Module. If you need further assistance with your doors unlocking unusual, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
new rear air bag shocks wont adjust to height regulation, passenger rear side is low.
The air compressor or a leak in the pneumatic system filling the air bags are common concerns for your type of vehicle. If you have performed the work on your own, check your work and make sure all connections are tight. You may spray a dish washing liquid and water solution on the components and anywhere you see a bubble will you know that you definitely have an air leak. My best advice is to have an experienced technician look over the work done and determine what needs to be fixed. A technician from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to inspect the issue and replace any faulty components as necessary.
My car got hit on rear passenger side and when you reach 65 mph its like the back of car is hopping 2003 Nissan Altima
Hello. If this occurred right after being hit then you have an issue with the alignment being off. It is also possible that something was bent or got damaged but this type of inspection would be done prior to the alignment. You really should have an alignment shop take a look at it and simply align it if that is all that is needs.
My heater is blowing air through the driver side air vents but is blowing cold air through the passenger side and rear console ven
Climate controlled vehicles have multiple electrical relays that open and close vents to maintain the desired temperature. In some instances, these relays can wear out overtime. However, it’s also common for debris to clog up vents (especially side vents) which may restrict the flow of cool air. The best way to determine why your AC is not working efficiently, it might be best to have a professional mechanic complete a AC inspection; so they can pinpoint the source of your issues and recommend the right repairs.
Will removal of sway bar cause my truck to lean even when parked to one side? 1997 GMC Jimmy
Hello – no, a broken sway bar won’t cause a tilt to either side just sitting there – only while turning. Your problem sounds like one of the driver-side springs, probably the front, has weakened. This causes the tilt you experience, and may require replacement to even out tire wear side-to-side. I would suggest a suspension inspection by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
I went to change the passenger side axle of my 2003 L300 3.0 and got the axle to find out the one in the car was not the same at
If you are not the original owner of the vehicle, it’s possible an engine or transmission swap was performed before you purchased the vehicle. Whether this is the case or not, have your parts source check listings for a couple of years before and after 2003 models to see if there is a difference. If for some reason that doesn’t work out, then you may have to rebuild the existing one. If your parts source cannot find the correct axle, ask them if they know of any local driveshaft rebuilders. I just tried a search for "driveshaft rebuilders" and a couple popped up in my area as well as several in other cities around the country.
