Airbox mod, stock filter, stock Exhaust. Loud when you want it too be, quiet
when conservative. 317, 000 km with the 1UZFE toyota engine, at 250 hp, 260
torque. 0-60 is 7.9 seconds new at least, not bad for a 3800 pound car.

What I have to say about the 1998 Lexus LS400: The most reliable luxury
sedan I have ever seen in my life. This LS will go to about 400,000 miles
without any problems, it's probably the craftsmanship that Lexus put into
these cars. If your looking for a very reliable luxurious used sedan, this
is the way to go.
Competitors: Mercedes S Class, Audi A8, Acura RL, BMW 7Series
Lexus LS400 - Steering Column Repair
I repaired a steering column on 1997 Lexus LS400. The column would not go
down when I put in the key, or when I pushed down on the switch. All I
would hear was a sound of a striped gear. Instead of paying Lexus the $600
for the part, I just repaired the gear myself. This is a very simple fix,
and will take you only 20 - 30 minutes.
8mm and 10mm socket and ratchet
Phillips head screw driver
some type of hook or hanger to pull the gear out
standard Zip-Tie to use as a spacer...or a water hose washer.
I hope you enjoy this video and it solves your problem with little cost and
effort. If you want to thank me, please look at my photography

1992 Lexus LS400 Start Up, Quick Tour, & Rev - 99K
1992 Lexus LS400 ( Re-Upload !!! )
These came with a 4.0L DOHC V8 making 250 HP while paired to a 4 spd auto.
They were very good cars with decent quality. Just that the looks were a
bit bland. This model debuted in 1990 to compete against the S-Class
Mercedes & they did a very good job at that. If anything, interior quality
was on par & in many instances was better than what Mercedes offered in
90-91. This was the car that rushed Mercedes to bring the newer style
S-Class in 1992.
