We've replaced the igniter. The igniter gets really hot idling 5 mins or drive for five mins.
1994 lexus es300 cranks fine runs 5 mins then shuts off. Will not fire back up for 10 to 15 mis. Not over heating, replace cam and crack shaft sensor and Ignition ignitor my mech has lost his mind with this car. Just checked with the Mech and he said the Ignition Ignitor is getting really hot. The old one and a used one we got from salvage yard. Gets hot when the key is turned on and the car is not running. When something cools down say 20 to 30 mins of sitting car cranks up and idles with no problem or will drive with no problem for 2 to 5 mins. The computer tester only gives the code for ignition ignitor. No other codes or problems are returned.
Cam & crank sensor Ignition Ignitor fuel pump & filters Started off running 15 20 miles then down to 5 now 1 maybe 2 miles. Simply stops running like running out of gas. Pressure is good on fuel. Used to let it sit on side of road 5 mins then drive another 5 to 10 mins. Now it has to sit for 15 or 20 mins to even start back up and can't drive more than 1 or 2 miles.
Diagnostic code after ecm cleared and the car runs for 5 mins then shuts off is P1300 The ignition ignitor is getting rather HOT to the touch after it runs for 2 to 5 mins then the car simply shuts off and will turn over but will not attempt to fire for the next 20 or 30 mins. I sprayed duster upside down on the ignitor last night to see if that would cool it and make it run but it did not help
code is for a shorted out coil which if it's shorted out will cause the ignitor to overheat have you changed any coil packs
MY MECH IS PULLING OUT HIS HAIR! I know you all make make a lot of money but mines really tight right now and the mech is a friend of mine so he's helping me out alot but I think he's at a loss for this one.
