Lexus RX 300 Failure

In one week of March we replaced 3 transmissions in 1999-2000 SUV’s. We had been seeing early failure in RX 300 that what we consider, low mileage 80k to I started asking the “why”

It seems quite like the sludging or gelling issue Toyota had with their 4 and 6 engines. ToyoTechs believes with timely servicing of transmissions, the life of this component will be extended Just like our insisting you motor oil service at least miles before the 5,000 service recommended by the factory. and the guys point out the service is printed right on the dip stick as and is in the owners manual as such.

What We Are Finding

That the is getting clogged up with fluid that is similar to in consistency, along with wear debris that the is made to suspend. This is clogging up the filter making the starved for its cooling, lubricating

The Solution

To flush the Transmission out sooner than the manufactures we suggest doing the first at 60,000 miles with a new then just flushes 30k after that. As of this no TSB has been issued but we think soon will


How this service gets matters a whole lot. Our has two BG flush machines because is such a time consuming and we do so many 60k services. The advantages of this machine: The BG system has the pump in the correct pressure and in the direction as in normal operation. The flush process calls for running a cleaner/solvent through followed by a Dextron 3 transmission flush then a BG shift

Depending on the circumstance we often the pan, clean it, and replace the filter at the pick up tube. If step does not get done and the stays clogged your is still starved and overheating an early death.

We have seen the RX 300 with on them so we believe spending a money now can save you big bucks. I’m about close to half the of the car! Note: Toyota failure uses this transmission across their line Camry Avalon models and have not have the degree of problems.

In Closing

Minor transmission service, a and fill, is waste of time and Only complete fluid will help in early failure. On highline vehicles as the Lexus RX300, replacement of the screen is necessary as these are prone to premature failure We strongly advise you that if you can this system clean and it will prevent very repairs to this otherwise good Toyota SUV.
