An intermittent connection in the crank position sensor wire connector can cause poor engine performance or the engine may crank but not start.

Insufficient fuel pressure may be caused by particulate contaminates or other type of substances by-passing the primary fuel pick-up screen and resulting in fuel pump failure. Our technicians recommended to replace entire fuel pump module assembly as two (2) filters, primary and secondary are included with the assembly.

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.
Some vehicles may exhibit a "buzz", whining", or "moaning" like noise from the transmission when reverse gear is selected. The condition is caused by a resonance of the transmission regulator valve system. Our technicians tell us that the repair involves replacing the transmission regulator (aluminum) valve with a steel one.
The fuse may blow repeatedly for the HVAC blower motor or the motor may stop working all together. Our technicians tell us that can often be repaired by replacing the blower motor switch with a revised switch and installing a wiring harness with a relay assembly.

The engine may exhibit excessively high oil pressure at cold start up. This may lead to distortion of the oil filter case. Inspect the oil filter case for any signs of distortion. If the case is distorted,  Connect an oil pressure gauge to the engine and start the engine while observing the readings. If the pressure reads above 80 psi, replace the oil pump.

On the 3.9L V6 and 5.2L V8 it is often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
