Known Problems
The engine may not crank when the key is turned to "start" if the starter relay fails. This can be confused with a defective starter motor.

Problems with the ignition coil can cause poor engine performance due to misfires and the symptoms may be intermittent. This may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate.

The exhaust manifold often warps and cracks, breaking off the studs between the cylinder head and the exhaust manifold. The noise may be most noticeable when the engine is cold.
