FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LEXUS MALAYSIA TO CONDUCT SPECIAL SERVICE CAMPAIGN
FOR LEXUS IS250 TO INSPECT FUEL PRESSURE SENSOR INSTALLATION
SHAH ALAM – Lexus Malaysia, a division of UMW Toyota Motor, the exclusive distributor of
Lexus vehicles in Malaysia would like to announce a Special Service Campaign (SSC) for its
Lexus IS250 models.
This is to address the insufficient tightening of the fuel pressure sensor that has been found
in some IS250 model produced from August 2007 to February 2009 . There is a possibility
that the pressure sensor could become loose, over time. If this occurs, fuel may leak via a
gasket that is used between the sensor and the delivery pipe connection.
Lexus Malaysia will inspect the vehicle for fuel leakage and if no leakage is found, the
fuel pressure sensor will be tighten with the proper torque. If a fuel leak is confirmed, the
gasket between the sensor and the delivery pipe will be replaced and the sensor will also be
tightened with the proper torque.
There are a total of 78 units of Lexus IS250 involved in this SSC and Lexus Malaysia is
taking proactive measures to contact all its owners. No other Lexus or Toyota models sold
by UMW Toyota Motor in Malaysia are involved in this campaign.
As soon as the parts are available, Lexus Malaysia will notify its customers and make
appointments to carry out the necessary corrective measures.
Customers may also contact Lexus Malaysia’s free phone line 1-800-88-LEXUS (53987) for
further information or assistance.
