Lexus GX 2010+ :: 2014 GX460 Engine Stalls While On A Stop Light

Jul 31, 2015

I bought a certified used 2014 GX460 with 16K. I now have 20k. Last week while on vacation, 450 miles away from home, while on a stop light the engine just stopped. I re cranked pulled into Drive and it stopped again. I wanted a couple of mins and it re started. I pulled to a safe area and called my service adviser. He said to keep driving it. Probably just a fluke.

It drove good for the next 45 mins. Later same day we took off again in it. It stopped on me 6 more times. Some were while I was travelling at 60 mph. It just stopped. Had to pull to the side of the road before I lost all steering ability. Kind of scary when a 18 wheeler is on your bumper.

I had it towed to the dealership. They kept if for 5 days. They said they replaced some gaskets around the exhaust valves??? Not areal good explanation.

I drove it 1 1/2 days (45 miles) and it started doing this again. It is at the deal ship now.

Lexus GX 2010+ :: GX460 Hissing Noise When Braking To A Stop

Ever since we got our 2012 GX, we hear a hissing noise whenever we brake to a stop. Does yours do this? Turn the radio off, and brake at a stop you hear it? The dealer didnt know what it was. We took another GX off the new car lot and it did the same thing. It sounds like air releasing when you brake.

Lexus GX 2010+ :: 2013 GX460 Stop And Go Jerkiness When Stepping On Pedal Initially

I recently bought a 2013 gx and noticed a few things.

1. At high speeds 50+ mph the car downshifts quite often during rapid deceleration.
2. When coming to a near stop but not completely, and accelerate moderately to fast, lot of times there is a jerkiness when stepping on pedal initially. Is this normal or could it be something with the differential gearbox?

Lexus GX 2010+ :: GX460 - 4 Lo Light Began Flashing Along With Dinging Sound

I just bought my wife a 2010 GX 460 and noticed an issue today with 4 Lo. When sitting with the car on, and in park, I engaged 4 Lo. The 4 Lo light began flashing along with a dinging sound. It didn't stop when I put it in drive or reverse, and just continued. The manual states I need to take it into the dealership because there is a malfunction.

Lexus GX 2010+ :: 2011 GX460 Humming Light Grinding Noise From Driver Seat

I have 2011 GX 460 with 28000 miles. Just recently I started to notice the noise of the engine. You can only hear it only from a driver's seat, and it happens when you drop the pedal and engine goes into idling, at stop signs or stop lights etc. It comes as grinding noise and goes away when you accelerate. If the vehicle in parking or at full stop, you can hear this humming light grinding noise. I go outside, lay under the car and hear no noise. The dealer says it is a normal sound for this vehicle. I tried a few of them, and it is not the sound I hear.

Lexus GX 2010+ :: 2014 - Engine Light Came On - RMP While Idling?

I have 900 miles on my new 2014 GX460 (bought in Sept) and engine light popped on. Told by Lexus that EGR valve needed to be replaced. It was defective. They said that they heard a whole lot was shipped bad and put on trucks. I guess I was one of the lucky ones. Should I be concerned about the longevity of my new truck now? Easy replacement? Could there be other issues? Has there really ever been a Lexus Lemon? I had a 2007 GX470 that hummed along wonderfully for years, so now worried.

Second question - at what RPM does your GX460 idle at while in gear? After getting it back, it seems to be idling low, but Lexus tells me it is computer configured and even if they wanted to tweak it they couldn't.

Lexus GX 2010+ :: GX460 - White Residue Under Oil Cap?

I just purchased a 2010 GX460 with 63000 miles. I saw a buildup of white residue under the oil cap the day of purchase but figured it was just moisture buildup from the car sitting on a car lot and not moving much. Well, after cleaning it off, it came back. I then thought maybe there is moisture in the oil so I took it to the local lexus dealer and had the oil changed. Well, its still coming back. The picture below is buildup from 2 days of driving, I cleaned it off monday afternoon and its wednesday afternoon. When checking the dipstick, I have almost completely clear oil as its new, then about 2 inches above the oil line to 6 inches above there is more of this white stuff. Also, does the lexus drivetrain warrant that lasts to 70k miles apply to 2nd owners?

Lexus GX 2010+ :: Brand New GX460 Drifts Heavily To Right?

Just took my brand new GX460 with 1000 miles on a road trip. I found the vehicle drifts heavily to the right, so much so that I have to even hold the steering wheel several degrees to the left to make the car go straight. I drove my other cars on the same road and they are not as bad and generally go straight. Is this possible? Can a new SUV of this price come out of the factory misaligned?

Lexus GX 2010+ :: Fuel Tank Capacity For GX460 - 23gl?

The specs says 23gl in total capacity. However, the last couple times I filled up gas, it was 19+ gl I put in with about 20+miles indicated on screen before filling up. So it means ~21gl in total capacity? I assume with 20+ miles left = ~2 gl of gasoline. I know the calculation is rough?
