The thermostat may become stuck closed, causing an overheating condition. Replacement of the thermostat will be required to correct this concern.
Problems with the ignition coil will cause the vehicle to misfire or not start.
The AC system may blow warm air due to refrigerant loss caused by a leaking low pressure AC hose. These hoses commonly develop a leak at the hose crimp connection.
The engine mount on the right side can wear prematurely and cause excessive engine movement.
The external seal on the engine oil cooler can fail and create an oil leak.
If the power steering pump develops leaks, it can drip onto the lower control arm bushing causing the bushing to deteriorate. A knocking noise will be heard when driving over bumps and it may become more difficult to control the vehicle.
