4 Cylinder engines, with a hard starting condition when cold and illumination of the Check Engine Light may have corrosion build up on the engine coolant temperature sensor. Our technicians tell us that the coolant sensor and pigtail should be replaced to correct this issue.
Vehicles equipped with a 4 cylinder engine may develop a no start or stalling condition, most commonly caused by a failed distributor pickup plate.
The fuel pump may fail resulting in a no start condition. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter whenever the fuel pump is replaced. Failure to replace the fuel filter may cause the replacement pump to fail prematurely.
Erratic operation of the speedometer may be noted on vehicles equipped with a passenger side motorized seat belt. This is generally caused by a failed Passive Belt Control Module (PBCM). Our technicians tell us that if the speedometer functions correctly with the PBCM disconnected the PBCM should be replaced.
