Known Problems

On higher-mileage vehicles, engine oil leaks from the valve covers and front crankshaft seal are common.

Timing cover oil and coolant leaks are common, the oil and coolant don't normally mix. Our technicians recommend to replace the timing chain and cam sprocket if the timing cover is removed to reseal - or for any other reason.

When shifting from Drive to Reverse (or vice versa), worn outer CV joints may cause a clunk or clicking noise. A loose axle nut can cause the same symptoms.

Poor output from the heater and/or engine overheating can be caused by air left in the cooling system after the cooling system has been serviced. Our technicians tell us the proper coolant fill procedure should be used to prevent this problem from occurring.

The fuel level sensors can wear out and cause erratic or inaccurate fuel gauge readings.

Software updates are available to address transmission issues. However, due to the age of these vehicles, mechanical failures are more likely to be causing transmission problems. If a mechanical failure is repaired or the transmission is replaced, it is important to make sure any software updates have been taken care of. Failure to do so could result in continuing transmission issues.

Faulty pressure transducers (sensors) or the evaporator temperature sensor may cause the AC to stop functioning. The body control module (BCM) may lock up and create similar symptoms. Disconnect the battery for five seconds before resetting the BCM.

The instrument cluster may illuminate randomly to its full brightness and/or the fuel gauge may drop to the empty position. Typically the symptoms are infrequent and the instrument cluster returns to normal operation after a few seconds. An update to the body control module (BCM) will fix this problem.

A loose timing chain on early models will produce a rattle (in the front of the engine) because the chain hits the guide. The timing chain should be replaced (the cam sprocket should always be replaced at the same time). Remove and discard the timing chain guide; on later V6 models, the guide has been eliminated.
