Model Years Affected: 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004

Engines Affected: 2.3L 4 Cylinder Turbo, 3.0L V6 Turbo

Average Mileage: 164,000 mi (163,000 mi - 165,000 mi)


The fuel pump check valve may have failed if the engine requires more cranking before it starts. The check valve is a one way valve that maintains the pressure in the fuel lines so the engine is easier to start after it has sat a while.
