I have a 2004 ES330 with a hestitation problem. It is good from a full end but as soon as I go not far off from turns upon onto highway ramps, afterward I sadden the accellarator (sp?) it hesitates for 2 seconds past reving up. I ve taken it to a mechanic and he says it is normal. I have an 2003 Avalon behind the similar engine and it jumps off the start and has no hesitation. Mechanic s Assistant: Will the headlights tilt on? Is the battery abundantly charged? With or without headlights on. Relatively further battery. Mechanic s Assistant: What is the model of your 04 Lexus? ES330 Mechanic s Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried in view of that far? I ve cleaned the MAF sensor. Checked for connections in the intake. gone I put my Turbo OBDII app on, everything seems fine except that the TPS stays constant concerning 30%. This is a drive-by-wire model hence it has not throttle cable or usual TPS. I undertake the TPS is integrated with the throttle controller/motor. Mechanic s Assistant: anything else you desire the mechanic to know past I attach you? No, I guess that is it.
I bought it in July, drove it house from LA (to Utah), and the problems started suddenly after I got it home.Any additional incite you can manage to pay for is appreciated. I don't know what else to attain but admit it urge on to the dealer. I know I've got the shop foreman involved upon it at the dealer, but I nevertheless setting its pushed to the encourage as its obsolete and everyone loses in this situation.
I don't have any check engine lights unless I unplug the MAF sensor. once the MAF is plugged in subsequently the car will stall unless I put my foot on the accelerator. There is afterward an intermittent popping sound coming at idle.
