Aisin is a leader in the development and production of high-quality original equipment matched components and systems for the automotive industry. Actually simple install, just take your time. Brakes still would not engage. Once he got a speed ticket because of it. To preclude hitting traffic on a major street, I put car in reverse. Would definitely purchase from this seller again. Works and fits great on my 2007 Lexus is250 rwd.
Side note I used a gallon concentrated antifreeze with a gallon of distilled water. However, the technician forgot to write the water pump information on the ticket. After I bought this pump, a serpentine belt and tools, I watched, almost to the point of studying, the youtube videos several times and read the club lexus instructions to get familiar with the steps before tackling on the actual job. Also an environmental hazard oil discharged into environment. Make sure you order two gallons of toyota super long life coolant too. My warranty ran out just before year 2 due to the high mileage. After complaining to Toyota, they bought the vehicle back.
However the water pump was slightly different from my original one in the 2008 lexus gs350. Replaced this myself this weekend and the part fits great and sound of rattling bearing is gone. I took my car in to a local Lexus dealer for an unrelated maintenance and the dealer advised me that my pump is ready to go. You have to take these off anyways while replacing the pump. I left the car overnight at two different dealership service depts so that they would be able to duplicate the sound also from a cold start. Will need 2 gallons of coolant for this repair. Mechanic said diagnostics pointed to cooling system error - water pump related.
Driven over 100 miles with the new water pump and it's been working great, no leaks. It's been about a month since I made the repairs and so far so good. Lexus only agreed to pay 25% of the bill for the replacement of the ac evaporator and nothing towards the cost of the replacement of the waterpump. No leaking after installed with the gaskets that came with the water pump. With this momentum, Aisin is increasing the development, manufacturing and supply for European and American automobile manufacturers.
I replaced the serpentine belt, thermostat, and upper and lower radiator hose during this install as well. The contact noticed while driving at 55 miles per hour the vehicle's cruise control caused the vehicle to accelerate. If you need any assistance please feel free to give us a call at. Also, the technician told my husband that the waterpump was leaking as well and it needed to be replaced. Replacement of the ac evaporator, water pump, and passenger side window are very expensive if the work is done at the dealership. Advanced technological design produces smooth coolant flow channels, efficient rotors, ball bearings, and carbon ceramic mechanical sealing for optimum cooling performance and longevity. Didn't a driver and his family lose their lives in a Lexus 350.
At first, he though other cars were slowing down, but later realize that it was his car speeding up. The part that bolts onto the pulley 4 bolts is shaped slightly different vs the original one that came with the car. Saved even more money there. Club lexus and youtube are great resources, but I admit I was quite hesitant to tackle on this repair as I am not mechanically inclined. The manufacturer had not been notified.
I ordered this water pump and followed the instructions posted on Club Lexus forum. Extended warranties are also available for purchase; please call for details. I did not contact them regarding the passenger front window. Engine continued to flare excessively. It seems like a lot of the issues that I stated above are recurring with other owners.
I took my vehicle to the dealership for the ac and was told the ac evaporator needed to be replaced. The malfunction seem to occur when other cars are around. Utilizing the experience and knowledge gained throughout the years of co-operation directly with automotive manufacturers, Aisin is able to employ a technological advantage in manufacturing and supplying of the best in quality and the most durable of products. I am concerned that there might be a problem later on with the vehicle and that this is a warning sign. Twice I was told that the mechanics were unable to duplicate the sound which is difficult for me to believe as it is there everytime I start the car.
