    Hello everybody!

    Summer is almost here and COVID19 is almost over we are looking for another great JDM family ride.
    I spent several hours searching internet about exact 2005 Lexus GS350 AWD model (JDM of course!) and not so sure now as I was before.
    I had a good time with Celsior and Soarer in the past and was sure Lexus is the way to go BUT very little (almost none) info about "5th cylinder" overheat because of "factory problem" with not sufficient ventilation leads to the whole engine failure.

    Please share your mind and possible knowledge resources.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for a reply. The same problem was reported for 2,5L, 3,0L and 3,5L FSE engines, not FE.
    Still not clear why overheating happens only to 5th cylinder...
    I'll keep digging and update here if found smth useful...
