Engine Affected: 2.2L 4 Cylinder


A cover plate on the front of the engine may develop a coolant leak, resulting in an engine overheating condition. This plate covers the location where the water pump was installed on previous versions for this engine. Replacing the gasket for the cover plate and refilling the cooling system is generally all that is required to correct this concern.
