  4. Oil Filter

Why do you need regular Oil & Filter Services?

Motor Oil provides the barrier that prevents metal-to-metal contact and absorbs heat from the moving parts of your Lexus' engine. The lubrication system filters the oil to remove contaminants and prevent corrosion, and then pumps it throughout the engine.

To keep your engine running smooth and clean, have your Oil & Filter changes performed at the recommended Lexus Maintenance Schedule intervals.

2. Engine & Exhaust

Engine Construction

  1. Timing Belt
  2. Crankshaft Pulley
  3. Idler Pulley
  4. Crankshaft
  5. Piston
  6. Valves
  7. Exhaust Camshaft
  8. Intake Camshaft
  9. Camshaft Timing Pulley

Ever wonder what makes your Lexus run?

A mixture of fuel and air is drawn through the Intake to the Cylinders. Spark Plugs ignite this mixture, causing it to fire and expand with enough force to drive down the Pistons. The downward motion of the Pistons rotates the Crankshaft, which in turn moves the Transmission.

The Timing Belt synchronizes the rotation of the Camshafts. The Intake and Exhaust Valves are opened and closed at precise times to operate the Engine and drive the Transmission efficiently. The Exhaust System neutralizes harmful gases created by the combustion process and removes them.

Electrical System

  1. Alternator
  2. Starter
  3. Battery
  4. Electronic Igniter
  5. Spark Plugs

Getting Started

The moment you turn the key or push the Start button you place demands on the Electrical System in your Lexus. A signal is sent to the Starter circuit to draw power from the Battery to the Starter and Electronic Igniters. The Starter engages the flywheel to start the Engine and the current is provided to the Igniters for the Spark Plugs. The Spark Plugs then ignite the air/fuel mixture to provide the Combustion that puts the engine in motion. While the Engine is running, the Alternator works to recharge the Battery and provide electrical power.

6. Brake System

Brake System

  1. Master Cylinder
  2. ABS Actuator
  3. Brake Booster
  4. Disc Brake

Your Brake System integrates Active Safety Systems like ABS to help ensure that when you apply the brakes, your Lexus brings you securely to a stop.

When brakes are applied, the pressure from the pedal is transmitted to the Brake Booster, which increases the force applied to the Brake Master Cylinder. The Master Cylinder converts this force from mechanical into hydraulic pressure. It is then directed by the Brake Fluid to the 4 wheels. There, the Calipers clamp the Brake Pads against both sides of the Brake Rotors to slow the rotation of the wheels.

8. Powertrain/Drivetrain

Rear-wheel Drive

  1. Engine
  2. Transmission
  3. Propeller Shaft
  4. Driveshaft
  5. Tire
  6. Differential

Transferring Power

The Transmission - Automatic or Manual - uses gears to control the amount of power and torque transmitted from the Engine to the Propeller Shaft, which then transmits this power to the Differential.

In AWD or 4WD vehicles, the Transmission sends power to the Transfer Case, which then sends it to both the front and rear axles via the Differential.

The Differential directs power from the propeller shaft to the Driveshafts, and enables the left and right wheels to rotate at different speeds when cornering.

10. Fuel System

Fuel System

  1. Injectors
  2. Fuel Lines
  3. Fuel Pump
  4. Fuel Tank
  5. Pressure Regulator

Time to Refuel?

When you top up the Fuel in your Lexus, the Fuel Tank prevents the emission of harmful fuel vapours. A Fuel Pump located inside the Tank moves the fuel through the Fuel Lines up to the Engine.

Fuel Injectors open and close to deliver a fine mist of fuel to the Cylinders, where the ignition and combustion occurs. These Injectors can occasionally require maintenance due to impurities in fuel. These contaminants can prevent injectors from creating the fine mist of fuel that is required for optimal performance and efficency.
