Known Problems

The throttle body may malfunction in very cold climates causing symptoms at engine start up. A throttle body causing problems will require replacement.

If it feels as though the steering wheel has a small amount of play (moves toward you when pulled), a new bearing retainer may be needed for the steering column.

A new lower secondary door seal is available if clothing is getting dirty when entering or exiting the truck. Dirt or mud may build up on the rocker panel below the door.

A revised return spring is available if the cup holder binds or is slow to open.
