Although a high rate of engine-related fires have been reported with this engine, most can be attributed to neglected maintenance. The fuel hoses in the engine compartment should be inspected periodically.

A growling noise may be noticed on deceleration from higher speeds. This type of noise is commonly caused by a bearing failure in the rear differential. Replacement of the rear differential is often necessary to correct this problem.
