My liftgate suddenly lifts using liftgate door handle, but when is gets fully open, it just drops. Is it the struts or is it some actuator thing?

    The struts have failed. They are like narrow bicycle pumps filled with oil. Try looking on www.rockauto.com or other auto parts web sites on line. A company called Beck Arnley make a wide range of these tailgate struts. Also try Napa auto parts stores.
