Known Problems

Brake fluid can become dirty and may cause problems in the brake system; it should be flushed every 60,000 miles.

The heater core may leak coolant which could cause the engine to overheat and steam to fog up the inside of the windshield.

Corrosion may develop at the connection between the ignition coil tower and spark plug wire resulting in an engine misfire. The Ignition coil and spark plug wire should both be replaced to correct this condition.

The transmission console shifter or wiring may fail causing the key to become stuck in the ignition.

The turn signal switch may fail causing the turn signal flasher to continue to click after the turn signals are turned off.
