Known Problems

The fuel pump may fail causing engine to stall and not restart.

You may be able to prevent transmission problems by servicing the transmission and inspecting the fluid every 30,000 miles. If the fluid is dark or burned then the transmission system should be completely flushed.

The spark plugs should be replaced every 30,000 miles and the spark plug boots should be checked for hot spots and cracks.

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

The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Our technicians tell us that operating the engine  with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.

One or more of the power windows may stop working due to a failed window switch. Failed switches will require replacement.

A stalling issue may occur if the battery goes dead or is disconnected and the "idle learn" procedure is not performed. For more information on "relearning" the engine idle speed, please click here»

The transmission pressure control solenoid may fail causing erratic shifting. Our technicians tell us that partial dis-assembly of the transmission is necessary to replace a failed pressure control solenoid.

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

One or more power windows may stop working due to a failed window motor or switch. Proper diagnoses will be necessary to determine the exact cause.

Corrosion may develop at the connection between the ignition coil tower and spark plug wire resulting in an engine misfire. The Ignition coil and spark plug wire should both be replaced to correct this condition.

An engine oil leak may develop from the rear of the engine. This is commonly caused by a failed oil pump drive o-ring seal. The leaking o-ring should be replaced to correct this concern.

Contaminated brake fluid can cause problems in the brake system and it should be flushed every 60,000 miles.
