#1187 of 2081 TCS - 98 LS 400
Jan 13, 2004 (10:10 am)
I have a 1998 LS 400 with 69k miles on it. When I toggle the TCS button to turn the system on / off, nothing appears on my dash. The slip diff does seem to be working since it has appeared on my dash during a couple of snow storms this year. My question, does it sound like a major repair to get the TCS to work properly? Should this only be fixed by LEXUS, or could a qualified mechanic fix it? Thanks

Your car has a low oil pressure light and also a low oil level light . Check your manual to verify which one you are seeing .

The Traction Light DOES light up during the bulb test of the car.
#1192 of 2081 Struts on '90 LS 400
Jan 14, 2004 (11:14 am)
I am wanting to change the struts on my 90 ls400, but don't know how hard it is going to be. Is it a pretty straightforward process that I can figure out? or do I need a shop manual? or does anyone have some simple directions? Also, the struts are making a clunking noise when I go over a pot hole, do I need to replace the strut housing as well, or anything else? Where is the best place to get these parts, whether they be after-market or oem.
#1193 of 2081 Are you sure it is the struts?

It could be the ball joints, or a number of other components such as bushings in the suspension.

I'm pretty sure it is the struts, the car has 150K and they've never been replaced. If I replace the struts, should i replace the bushings at the same time to save labor? or is there some way of determining if it is the ball joints/bushings? How difficult to replace these items?
#1195 of 2081 It's a real BEAR!

You definitely need a shop manual and good spring compressors.
