Known Problems

If the engine cranks but does not start, it may be caused by a tripped inertia switch. Switch the key to "ON" and the fuel pump should be heard running for a second or two. Listen at the gas filler if necessary. If you do not hear the pump the inertia switch should be reset, it will "click" when it is reset.

If the engine runs poorly or stalls while being driven in the reverse, the intake tube between the mass airflow sensor and throttle body may be split. The damaged intake ducting will need to be replaced.

Our technicians report the original paint tends to fade and the clear coat peels off, though many cars have now been repainted.
