Known Problems
The engine may not crank over when trying to start the vehicle. Our technicians recommend to inspect the starter cable at the solenoid before replacing the starter motor or battery cable.

Oil seepage can occur at the speed sensor or speed sensor gear adapter (speedometer adapter). A redesigned speed sensor is available and the adapter may need to be replaced.

Some transmissions may slip in reverse or at mid throttle. The repair involves replacing the regulator valve line pressure sleeve and plug. The reverse drum, reverse band, and rear servo assembly must also be inspected and replaced as necessary.
A squeaking/clicking noise from the rear of the vehicle may be coming from the rear springs. Our technicians tell us that a kit is available including spring tip liners and clinch clips.
