    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    I almost did a DIY on replacing the engine air filter but decided that if you can't figure it out, hire a monkey to do it....he'll get it. Instead all you're going to get is a visual comparison of an OEM Toyota filer against an aftermarket Mahle one. Mahle on the left; OEM Toyota on the right...

    I was looking into changing my cabin filter but remembered reading something about the filter being a carbon one. Is that only available at the dealership? Also, does it make a huge difference? Thanks, Andrew
  5. Do your lungs a favor, K&N cabin air filter
    Cabin filter is something that we all need to replace in our cars from time to time. If you don't do it in time or using a poor quality filter, it may be bad for your health, as the air inside of a car may be even more polluted than outside. There is dust, dirt, exhaust gases and million of...

    I just got my 2011 ct200h and did my first oil change. Unfortunately I couldn't remove the special tool that goes on the oil filter cap. I left it on there. Should I be concerned?

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Hello guys, I am sorry if the thread is not correct, but I would like to know if it is possible to change the engine air filter with a new panel one in better material (tipically a Sprintfilter in sintetic material or else, not a CDA or else...). This would cause any error in the CAR's ecu or...
