High Pressure Power Steering Hose Can Leak Fluid

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

Engine Starts and Stalls Due to Secutiry System Fault

The engine may start and stall with the security light flashing. This is commonly caused by a failed passlock sensor which is part of the ignition lock cylinder. A secondary cause could be the ignition switch itself. Worn contacts inside the ignition switch can cause voltage drop issues which can affect the passlock system. Proper diagnoses should be performed before replacing any parts.

Front Passenger Air Bag Stays Active With Child Seat Installed

The passenger front air bag may not deactivate as designed due to a failure of the sensing system. Dealers will correct the calibration-learning error by preconditioning the empty seat and also resetting the control unit to a seat zero-value free of charge to resolve the concern.

Engine Oil Leaks

Engine oil may leak from the valve cover area, which can cause a burning odor and increase risk of fire. Dealers will replace the spark plug wire retainer to redirect the dripping oil on affected vehicles, and will replace the left valve cover gasket on vehicles with the 3.8L V6 supercharged engine.
