Known Problems

Fuel injectors can short-circuit electrically causing a rougher than normal idle and reduced performance.

Our technicians highly recommend that the engine coolant be replaced every 30,000 miles.

An engine oil leak may develop from the oil pump drive O-ring. This can often be confused with an intake manifold gasket leak. Careful inspection is required to determine the exact cause of the leak. Replacement of the failed 0-ring will commonly correct this concern.

The oxygen sensor can fail causing Check Engine Light illumination and the engine to run rich (burn more fuel than normal).

This engine may leak oil from the valve cover gasket.

One or more of the rear suspension links may become bent causing a severe rubbing noise.

The timing belt may fail prematurely. Our technicians tell us that the belt tensioner and idler pulleys should be replaced when the timing belt is replaced.
Timing gears may wear causing a mild to severe knocking noise from the front of the engine. Replacement of the timing gears is necessary.
