Having problems with your Lexus LX 450 ?
The engine sputters when in drive but runs smooth in park
\015 The check engine light is on but i do not know what the codes are. When in drive or neutral the engine runes smooth, even when revved. As soon as I put it in drive it stalls when I accelerate. This is a 1997 LX450. Thanks for any help!\015
You have a Idle air control valve,but it would not stall you out when you accelerate,A badly plugged airfilter can stall you as you acclerate, A plugged exhaust or catalytic can do this but you would not be able to rev the engine, and you would has power loss on acceleration.The only thing that comes close to what you are experiencing would be the MAF (mass air flow) air duct taking in false air check to see if there is any torn that can cause false air.
