Known Problems

Transmission problems are common in this model, often as a result of a failed front pump. The pump loses its ability to create hydraulic pressure, which an automatic transmission needs to function. A sign of front pump failure can be a whine type noise.

Wear on the rear axle shafts near the bearings can create excessive play and lead to gear oil leaking past the seals. Gear oil will leak onto the brake backing plate, brakes, and wheels.

The battery light may illuminate on the instrument panel because the alternator wire harness connector is damaged. A new connector kit is available and should be installed to correct this concern.

The engine may overheat at idle when the AC is on. A new, upgraded fan motor and resistor assembly should be installed.

Catalytic converter failure is common. Internal components become loose, causing a rattle or creating back pressure in the exhaust.
