lexus is fuel cooler

Answers and questions: lexus is fuel cooler

of such a pump is shorter than a low pressure pump used in port injection engines. This is apparently part of the cost(to BMW) of the new technology for greater efficiency and cleaner burning engines. I remember fuel injectors plugging on many car brands when fuel injection became common. And I dont remember the cleaning or replacement of injectors being free to 120K miles. As far as the lexus

Posted by bam First...if BMW knew they had a design flaw they wouldnt put it in some many models is complete BS. Do you know how much BMW spent in R&D in this engine I love this engine but I personally believe that this engine wasnt supposed to be released until an LCI for the 3 series. Ill explain... When the new 3 series were released they had a 255 hp (I believe) engine in the 330. lexus

LEXUS SC II SC400 2008 Z06 ECS SL1500 Paxton SC Install

Okay so here are the results of the East Coast Supercharging SL1500 supercharger kit I installed on my stock 08Z with only 4000 miles on it. After installing the kit and (edit) the base tune Doug at ECS prepared as requested for 91 octane and no meth inj. - the first set of Mustang Dyno runs and tune at Lightspeed Innovations netted 545hp and 571 ft lbs on 91 octane in 70 degree temperatures but I

I can run 91 octane fuel if I have to in 70 degree temps without detonation even when under full load and heat-soaked - although I will be running 93-94 octane fuel whenever possible. I believe he pulled back the timing and richened the mixture in order to avoid detonation on 91 octane and thats partially why its a little shy on hp at the top end compared to what some others are making with this

LEXUS CT Sports Mode Always

So i think we can conclude that the majority of the drivers here get better gas mileage when driving in sports mode and the cars alot more fun to drive in that mode. Is there a way to have sports mode on when we turn on the car or do we have to manually switch it every time we turn on the car

BMW SERIES 3 E90 E91 E92 E93 BMW should extend 335i warranty

With all the issues with fuel pump failures and high oil temperatures (with no retrofit for cars without an oil cooler) BMW should extend the 335i original engine warranty to 6 years100000 miles like they did with the M3 a few years ago. This is the least they can do even if the problems are resolved. I dont feel warm and fuzzy keeping the 335i past its warranty period at this time. My fuel pump died

ago and I dont have any indication yet when a replacement will arrive. Its just not right. Yeah just hope the fuel pump doesnt go after the warranty expires. I smell a huge cost there with parts and labor. But lets face it the 335i is a good car to lease but not so good to buy. That is a mistake I wont make again as I was ignorant enough to think BMW would design 40k cars for the long term like lexus

AUDI A4 B8 Audis Dirty Secrets on CVT

First time owner of a new 2012 A4 I had no clue what the CVT transmission was. I had been test driving an A5 Quattro and at the last minute when I declined their best offer I was shown an A4 (non-Quattro) or FWD. I took a short spin around the block and said it shifts pretty smooth and was never giving the CVT explanation. Huge mistake I have had conversations with Audi the dealership I purchased the

I have worked for Mercedes BMW and now AudiLamborghini. I personally love Audis and would never own another brand but thats just me.

BMW SERIES 3 E90 E91 E92 E93 Did I make a mistake

BMW SERIES 5 E39 Ideas on reducing heat...

It seems to me that most of the damage done to E39s is due to heat. Specifically the heat in the engine compartment. The rubber and plastic parts wear down faster because of heat fatigue. You would think that BMW would have done something to better combat it but well I dont think they did. Whenever I open the hood even after a brief 3-5 minute drive at moderate speeds the engine is probably hot enough

rpm range is safe before the engine is up to full operating temperature. So the idea of using a colder T-stat is not sound for reducing heat as 540ibakers is trying to discover. 1. Re Operating Temp If you look at Bosch fuel Injection Map it stops enriching the fuel mixture at 60 deg C and above. Have a look at fuel stoichiometry published by Bosch. So whether the engine is temp is 80 C (Toyotas lexus

I got my Black Pearl - a 2007 Audi Q7 4.2 (non-premium) with Technology and Entertainment packages in Jan 2007.

I do realize that making the move from Japanese quality to German performance comes at a cost both in terms of dollars and reliability. The 335i problems I keep reading about seem a little excessive though. I already know what youre going to say If youre so concerned about reliability perhaps youd be better off in an Infiniti or a lexus.

BMW SERIES 3 E90 E91 E92 E93 Reliability Please read.

Hello I am currently in the market for a new car and the 335i sits high on my list. I have so far driven the g35 sedan the A4 and both the 328 and 335. My favorite on the list is easily the 335 but i just have one concern reliability. My current BMW (92 735) hasnt had any serious problems to date (162000k and running strong) but my father owned a 98 7 series that was constantly in the shop not to mention

I just went through the car buying decision process. Seriously considered Infiniti G35G35xM35 Acura TL & RL lexus GS and Mercedes E Class. The new 535 was also in the mix. I had foreknowledge of the oil cooler controversey and the fuel pump problems. I still went full steam ahead. Honestly I liked the car so much I was willing to pay the price of those potential problems. I really dont think I am that

as you&39ve already noted less weight in front aids transfer to the rear wheels for grip on hard launches. What&39s not to like besides the cost - Addundum to 73birdman - if you&39re looking for all out gonzo performance with no holds barred don&39t even mess with the factory bottom end either. You want a Jim Butler or Kauffman-prepared race motor. That will outrun your cousin&39s SS and your lexus

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E III 211 Thinking of buying a e320 cdi

Hello w211 forum members im coming from a w140 MB S class mine is eating up alot of gas (14mpg) and i was thinking of getting an e320 cdi now i had issues with my car and had to spend alot on fixing it do you cdi owners run into the same problems are they reliable or do they need occasional maintenance like other Mercs Im seriously considering this car and i want to ask your opinions. Is it worth buying this car

pump less often and you might need to get over the DIY learning curve a diesel... youll probably get bored because theres not much to work on. Keep in mind the CDI was produced through 2006 and has the 5-speed transmission and 3.2l inline 6 engine while the 2007-2009 BlueTec has the 7-speed transmission and the OM642 v6 engine. I recall all the W140 guys saying the only car to jump for was the lexus

BMW SERIES 3 E90 E91 E92 E93 Need advice from others on whether to buy a BMW or not

Hi all Im currently having a hard time deciding whether or not to buy a BMW as my next car. Im looking at getting an 08 (since MY07 are pretty much done with) 335i coupe fully loaded minus the variable steering and adaptive cruise with the dealer installed aero package (minus the ugly rear-deck spoiler) in sparkling graphite metalic and saddle brown interior. Ive done my research and am now ready to

some exterior features they would appeal to more BMW lovers. Seriously do they really need to have their brand name printed in big silver letters across the trunk lid Little things like that IMO takes away from the cars prestige. The G37 lines are sexy but its geared more towards sporty rather than luxury. The bmw is sporty but maintains a level of class equaling that of luxo manufacturers like lexus

MERCEDES BENZ 124 124 Synthetic Oil

I have a 300D with an OM602 diesel engine. I currently use a conventional 15W-40 oil and would like to switch to Mobil 1 5W-40 Synthetic. I have heard that synthetics leak and cause problems with older cars especially with high mileage (Mine has 240k). Let me know your thoughts and personal experiences with synthetics (and if I can switch from 15W-40 to 5W-40 both diesel rated).

never change it. Go to Wally World and get whatever diesel 15W40 is in gallon containers and if youre lucky on sale. Many of us gasoline engine owners use C4 oil anyway. Mercedes engines just seem to do well on it. Oh and I change the oil on my E320 every 10K miles has 175K on it and not one oil-related engine issue. Consumes about a quart every 3K miles which is less than normal. My wifes 02 lexus

I havent been able to find much information regarding the

Theyre betting that people will love the powertrain so much that theyll be able to look past whatever blows up on them that they have to get replaced and I think its a good bet . Since when have BMW owners been concerned about TOP reliability Never. Thats what lexus

Everything was good until recently when the front end started making a squeaking noise going over speed bumps. I took it in last week and the dealer determined they needed to replace the control arms. None are in stock so they had to order it. Funny thing was that these parts were back ordered so I have to wait about 2 weeks. So when I take it in next week itll be my 5th visit for warranty work in 14 months of ownership. The Navi does some funny things every now and then too. The other day it dumped all my saved destinations and sometimes the ETA is way off. If I turn it off and then on again it works fine. Strange. Our next family car will probably be a lexus or Infiniti. Ive owned Japanese cars before and never had any issues with them.

BMW SERIES 3 E90 E91 E92 E93 100 MPH and Above Tire Pressure Factory Recommendations

So BMW in the manual recommends tire pressures based on load and whether or not you plan to exceed 100 MPH. My car came from the dealer set at the normal loading with 100 MPH and above setting. I am not feeling like the ride is harsh but have yet to fully inspect my tires to see if they are wearing evenly. In any case what do you guys mostly run recommended below 100 MPH or recommended above 100 MPH

fuel economy wont change much once your tires are inflated above about 32 psi... Ive talked at length to the tire engineers about this. I drove across the desert (LA - Phoenix) last weekend in a lexus GS 450h with four passengers and full luggage (four suitcases a camera bag cooler and a briefcase). It was 115 F outside and I was doing 75-95 mph the whole time... I bumped the tires up a few psi in
