How to Reset Oil Maintenance Required Light Lexus GS
Midas $700 mistake: http://www.provenhelper.com/MidasTouched Sometimes
the tech forgets to reset your oil maintenance required light after an oil
change. This is the procedure on how to reset it yourself. This was done on
a 2006 GS300 but it should work on most newer Lexus cars.
1. With the car running set the odometer to display total vehicle miles.
2. Shut the vehicle off.
3. With the trip reset button held down, switch the vehicle to on (push the
start button twice without your foot on the brake).

Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we'll take an up close and personal, in depth
look at the prototype 2015 Lexus NX. A more complete "In Depth Review"
will follow with they begin to hit showrooms later this year.
MSRP pricing for the NX has not been released. I will update this as soon
as it's available.
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth educational videos of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be

2014 Lexus GS 450h Hybrid Review and Road Test

The GS used to be the only hybrid game in town, but times have changed and
nearly everyone has joined the party. BMW has their turbocharged ActiveHybrid 5, Mercedes just
launched the E400 Hybrid, Infiniti has re-badged their M Hybrid the Q70
Hybrid, Acura is finally selling the all-wheel-drive RLX Hybrid and Audi
has announced the A6 hybrid will come to America "soon." This means that
the S80 T6 and Genesis are no longer on my list because we have
head-to-head competition now.
Lexus used to be known for restrained styling but the current generation GS
marked a change for the Japanese luxury brand. In addition to taking on
more aggressive front end styling, the GS was the first Lexus to wear the
new "spindle" grille. The schnozz that seemed so controversial three years
ago seems downright demure today, especially since this form has been
adapted to the enormous (and some say questionable) LX 470. Perhaps because
the GS was the first to wear the corporate grille, the styling seems
slightly awkward from the front 3/4 shot (seen at the top) but looks better
in person. Unlike the IS, which gets some sheetmetal swooshes on the side,
the GS's profile and rump are luxury car restrained. Overall I think the
Infiniti Q70 hybrid, despite being a little long in the tooth, still wins
the beauty contest. The Lexus and BMW are a bit too sedate for my tastes,
and the RLX and A6 suffer from decidedly front-wheel-drive proportions when
compared to the rest and the Mercedes lands smack in the middle.
While the GS 350 recently got an update in the form of a new Aisin 8-speed
automatic, the GS 450h continues with just a minor software update. This
means under the hood you will find the same direct-injection 3.5L
Atkinson-cycle V6 engine and RWD hybrid transmission that launched in 2011.
Combined with a 1.9 kWh NiMH battery pack in the trunk the system is good
for 338 combined horsepower, 286 of which
come from the gasoline engine. This is essentially the same engine found in
the Highlander and RX hybrids, but the transmission is more similar to what
Lexus uses in the LS 600hL. The unit combines the two motor/generator units
with a 2-speed planetary gearset to improve efficiency at high speeds (as
in on the Autobahn) but without the AWD system standard in the LS 600hL.
The 2014 software update improves "sportiness" in sport mode and now
imitates an 8-speed automatic instead of a 6-speed. While 338 horsepower compares well
with the 6-cylinder competition, the GS 450h has the unenviable task of
trying to be both the most efficient GS and the performance version as
well. For reasons nobody knows, the more efficient GS 300h which uses a
2.5L four-cylinder engine is not sold in America.
By design, the Lexus hybrid system is very different from the competition.
The two motor/generator units and the electrical circuitry combine with a
single planetary gearsest to "act" as a continuously variable transmission.
This setup allows the drivetrain to act as a serial hybrid (kind of),
parallel hybrid, electric generator, or a pure EV at low speeds. In
contrast Mercedes, BMW and Infiniti combine a traditional transmission with
a single electric motor that replaces the torque converter. Transitions
between electric and gasoline drive modes in these systems aren't as smooth
as the Lexus system because of the clutch packs involved in reconnecting
the engine. Meanwhile Acura combines a dual-clutch robotic manual
transmission with a twin-motor pack in the rear for the only AWD hybrid
luxury sedan in this category.
Of course the primary reason for buying a hybrid is to save on gas. Right?
Maybe. With a 29 MPG City, 34 MPG Highway and 31 MPG combined rating
there's no doubt that the GS 450h is a fuel sipping 338 horsepower luxury sedan.
However at more than $10,000 more expensive than a similarly equipped GS
350 it would take you more than 20 years to "save money." We did average an
excellent 31.5 MPG over 800 miles with the GS hybrid, a notable improvement
over the Infiniti hybrid and the short time I spent in the RLX hybrid.
Although we haven't extensively tested the BMW and Mercedes hybrids yet,
brief spins in both indicate they will slot in under the GS. There's one
more problem for the GS: Mercedes' new E250 diesel. No, it's not a speed
daemon, but at 34 mpg combined it not only makes up for the higher cost of
diesel with the higher fuel economy, it starts around $9,000 less than a GS
450h as well.

To join the conversation with owners and fans on our social channels,
Appearing as though it is precision machined from a single sheet of metal,
the Lexus NX will certainly turn heads when out on the roads. This premium
compact crossover is a first for Lexus; its blend of edgy styling and
world-leading technology making it a desirable addition to the range. The
Lexus NX incorporates a choice of petrol and hybrid powertrains culminating
in the highly efficient full hybrid NX 300h, and is offered in five trim
levels, ranging from the entry-level S, up through SE and Luxury to the
driver-focused F Sport model, and culminating in the range-topping Premier.
Technology abounds on the NX, aiding both safety and convenience and making
the Lexus a great place to be.

Lexus IS and too-large Lexus LS, the Lexus GS offers an appealing blend of
luxury, comfort, and space. Although an older design does lead to some
dated technology interfaces, you can't deny this models incredibly plush
ride, smooth-revving engine, and high-quality cabin. Just be sure you
aren't the kind of driver that likes some sport with their luxury, as the
GS is strictly just a luxury sedan here.

How To Diagnose A Fuel Pump Failure - EricTheCarGuy
I had the privilege of visiting Airtex, and while I was there I spoke with
Shane Neuman about diagnosing a faulty fuel pump. In this video we go over
the basic steps of diagnosing a faulty fuel pump. So if your vehicle isn't
starting and you suspect a fuel pump problem, here are some steps to follow
to confirm your suspicions. Another 'quick' test is to bang on the fuel
tank and then try and start the engine. Sometimes this works, just don't
bang too hard, you could damage something.
