Known Problems

A surging or bucking during acceleration can be caused if the distributor is moved or mis-indexed. This is a result of the cam and crank position sensors being out of synchronization. Wear of the oil pump drive gear can cause similar symptoms because it allows excessive free play in the distributor drive. The distributor drive gear and bushing should be replaced if the rotor tip moves back-and-forth more than 3/16th of an inch when checking drive gear free play.

The door glass may separate from the glass lift channel. Our technicians tell us a front door glass channel kit is available to repair the door glass. The repair involves removing the door glass from the vehicle.

Delayed transmission engagement of 2 to 8 seconds may be noted after  the vehicle has been parked for an extended period. Our technicians tell the repair involves installing a drainback relief valve in the transmission oil cooler pressure line.
A delayed upshift condition may be experienced for about 1/4 mile in cold weather (32 degrees F and below) and is most noticeable after the vehicle has been parked for 8 or more hours. Our technicians tell us the repair involves replacing teflon governor drive seal rings with cast iron seal rings.

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.

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.

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.
