Known Problems

Due to warped front brake rotors or variations in the thickness of the rotors, brake pulsations may develop. The best method to reduce pulsations is to use an "On the Car" brake lathe (as long as the rotors are suitable for turning). "On the Car" equipment can correct variations (or "runout") in the rotor surfaces because it also corrects variations in other components (e.g. the hub).

If the transmission delays initial gear engagement after being parked overnight or longer, it may be due to a suspect transmission cooler return filter. If the transmission was recently serviced and the part number for the cooler return filter contains an "AB" suffix at the end, a new filter should be installed.

Vehicles with manual temperature control may develop a condition where warm air is coming from the instrument panel outlets when cold has been selected. Our technicians tell us a revised air distribution housing is available to correct this concern.

The power right side rear view mirror may not adjust correctly. Our technicians tell us a revised mirror assembly is available which can correct this concern.

A popping or groan type noise may occur when opening or closing one or more of the vehicle doors. This may be caused bu insufficient lube on the lower hinge roller axle. Applying a small amount of grease between the roller pin and the inside surface should correct this concern. Our technicians tell us if the grease is not applied in the correct location, the noise will remain.

Vehicles equipped with the multiple displacement system (MDS) must use the correct 5W-20 oil in order to function properly.
