Known Problems

A single click or pop may be heard from the rear of the vehicle when the clutch is released. Our technicians tell us the repair involves installing matched hubs and yokes to the rear axle.

The AC/heater (HVAC) system may unexpectedly switch to the defrost mode when accelerating. This system is operated by engine vacuum and should be inspected for any vacuum leaks if this problem develops.  There is also a revised vacuum check valve available to address this concern.

A light chatter or rattle or noise from the transmission may be noted with the clutch engaged and the transmission in neutral. Updating the transmission lubricant, SAE 75W will help but not eliminate it.

Some driveline clunk noted on acceleration and deceleration is considered normal.

Wind noise and/or water leaks may be noted from the top of the windshield frame. Our technicians tell us that installing adjustable top latch handles should help to correct this problem.
A water leak may develop between the top and side curtains. There are updated right and left side rails available to correct this issue.
A lack of performance may be noted due to misalignment of the throttle cable bracket.
A rough idle condition may be due to a leaking intake manifold gasket. Our technicians tell us a revised intake gasket is available.
