Model Years Affected: 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2006

Drive Trains Affected: 2WD, 4WD

Average Mileage: 168,669 mi (150,000 mi - 210,000 mi)


At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.
