#3 of 12 Cabin heat in 95 SC400
Jan 25, 2009 (10:13 am)
We have a 1995 SC400 that has been a great car. Recently the inside cabin heat works sporadically (when it is turned on). When the car is driving down the road, the inside cabin heater works properly. When the car sits idle at a stop sign, the heater blower still works but the heat turns to cold air. We have replaced the thermostat and cap. What else can be causing the sporadic heat/cold?

Just purchased a '95 SC 400 with - get this - 59,000 miles on it. It's got every option. I'm looking forward to many, many miles of pleasure (if not ecstasy!) driving this beauty. Seems perfect except for the power antenna (which is now a manual).
Anything I should look for - or look out for - in terms of problems down the road?
#5 of 12 Water in headlight

My 95 SC400 has water in the left headlight. Anyone have advice on removing the lens to clear the water and how to seal the gasket so it won't recur?
Also, both headlight lens are yellowing and dull. I've bought Mequier's plastic cleaner but haven't yet used it. Any advice on whether or not to do so?
Last, the display for the a/c is clouding out on the right side. Is there a fix less expensive and troublesome than replacing the display?

When I drove "Jade" out of the new car showroom in northern New Jersey in August of 1995 more than 14 years ago, who would have thought we'd still be together and quite happy with each other for so long after that? She was the second SC400 I ever owned and I knew what I was getting into when I returned my 1992 SC400 "Honey"'s lease when it expired. I've owned or leased Jaguars, Mercedes, Cadillacs, BMWs, etc. when I lived in New York City but not once did I ever imagine that I'd still be drawing stares on the street and thumbs up on the road being with Jade! If this were a marriage, it would be a very, very good one. As with my wife, I am planning to be with Jade until my very last day.

My 95 SC 400 had the same leak issues in the front left headlight What did you find out as the best way to take care of it in the future.

The tail light on this car had a similar issue. I took it all the way out and ran a hair dryer into the lens to dry it out. Before reinstalling, I cleaned the rubber seals and made sure everything joined tightly...it's worked ever since, no more condensation in the lens. The plastic headlight cleaner definitely works and makes a huge difference compared to the yellowed lights the car had before.

I don't have an answer for you, but I am having a similar problem with a 1992 Lexus SC 300. It was running great & now it is running rough, won't idle & is blowing black smoke. Did you get your problem resolved? If so, what did you do?
#11 of 12 Engine running rough
Aug 18, 2010 (11:04 am)
My 1992 Lexus SC 300 with 120,000 miles that has been running fine until recently it started running poorly & dying with a puff of white smoke. Installed a new head gasket, but still running poorly & dying. Took it to a Toyota dealer & they thought it may be bad gas. Had them drain the tank. It ran great for 3 days. Now it's back to running rough, not idling & blowing black smoke. Toyota wants to try replacing the ECM, but they are not sure that is the problem. At $1000.00 I want to be reasonably sure that is the problem & not throwing parts at it until we fix it. Anyone have a similar situation?

Does anybody have fixes to this problem? I have observed this in other SC 300 & 400's.
