Known Problems
Extended life coolant may become contaminated and require cooling system service before the recommended 100,000 miles.

The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid; it should be replaced.

Brake fluid can become dirty and may cause problems in the brake system; it should be flushed every 60,000 miles.

The ABS brake pressure modulator valve can fail internally causing the ABS light to illuminate.

The steering rack may fail causing a loss of power steering fluid as a result the steering may become hard to turn.

The front struts may show signs of wear, or be excessively bouncy ride at freeway speeds. This may begin to occur at around 75,000 miles.

The rubber section of an automatic transmission cooler line may develop a fluid leak . In some cases the leaking section of hose can be replaced. In others, the complete cooler line must be replaced to correct this concern.

Do to a low or erratic voltage condition, the fuel gauge needle may "jump" around and become stuck on the back side of the "stop" below the "empty" indicator. This does not mean the gauge is broken. If the gauge cover is removed and the needle is gently moved back around to the correct side of the pin, the gauge will again function normally. When the needle is moved back to the correct position, the electrical problem that caused the needle to jump in the first place must be corrected or the needle may jump around again. The most common problems that cause this condition are a weak battery or corrosion on the battery cable ends.
