Known Problems

An oil leak may develop from the front crankshaft seal. Our technicians tell us a revised seal is available which should correct this concern.

A chirping type noise may be noted from the engine area, mostly at idle. This type of noise is generally caused by a faulty drive belt idler pulley. Our technicians tell us a revised pulley is available to correct this concern. Chirping Type Noise From Engine at Idle

A rough or unstable idle may be noted due to an intake manifold vacuum leak. Our technicians tell us a revised intake manifold gasket, along with manifold bolt flat washers which will better distribute the clamping force are available to correct this concern.

In severe wet conditions, water may enter the anti-lock brake system (ABS) modulator electrical connector resulting in corrosion and illumination of the ABS warning light. Our technicians tell us revised modulator ground leads are available to better seal the connector. If corrosion is found in the electrical connector the connector will need to be repaired as necessary and the new ground leads installed.

A pulsation may be noted upon brake application. This condition is commonly caused by warped brake rotors. Our technicians recommend inspecting both front and rear brake rotors when this condition occurs. Brake pads should be replaced along with any warped rotors to correct this condition.
