Known Problems

A defective anti-lock brake system (ABS) pump and/or leaking piston seals in the master cylinder can cause excessive pedal effort, lack of stopping power, and abnormal pump noise. Diagnoses will be required to determine the root cause of any braking issues and the component(s) that will require replacement.

The speedometer may become inoperative due to a failed vehicle speed sensor (VSS), . A failed sensor will require replacement.

Timing cover oil and coolant leaks are common, the oil and coolant don't normally mix. Our technicians recommend to replace the timing chain and cam sprocket if the timing cover is removed to reseal - or for any other reason.

Excessive oil consumption—defined as more than one quart per 1,000 miles (on vehicles with less than 50,000 miles) or more than one quart per 750 miles (on vehicles with more than 50,000 miles)—is common. Common causes include exhaust valve guides, valve cover gaskets, camshaft plugs, camshaft seals, and crankshaft seal.

Noise coming from the front suspension can be caused by the front sway bar; the sway bar bushings should be replaced.

A refrigerant leak at the rear AC expansion valve and/or AC evaporator seals may cause the rear AC not to work.

Common areas for engine oil leaks include the camshaft plug, camshaft seal (sprocket end), valve cover gaskets, cylinder head gasket and distributor.

An intermittent loss of speed control can happen soon after the transaxle input or output speed sensor has been replaced. The problem is most likely caused by bad connectors.

Often when replacing the front left wheel speed sensor, the wrong part is used (it's from a later model year). If the wrong sensor is used, it can damage the wheel speed sensor wiring.

The door ajar light may illuminate and chime during driving, even when the sliding door is closed. Often, this is caused by a faulty switch in the C-pillar; a revised switch is available.

Voltage spikes can cause erratic behavior in the electrical system (lights, locks, wipers, head lamps). This is often caused by relays. Inspection and replacement  of relays is required; revised relays are available.

The airbag warning light may remain illuminated while the ignition switch is in the "on" position. This can be caused by water that has entered into the airbag six-way connector in the engine compartment.

Sometimes the vent windows' latch can pop open; if it will not stay closed or rattles, the latch assembly should be replaced.

A problem with the sliding door track and door stops can allow the door to slide out of the track and fall off the vehicle. This is more common when doors are opened fast and allowed to hit the stops with a lot of force.

The rear lift gate support (prop) attaching bolts may break, causing the lift gate to fall unexpectedly. Thorough inspection of the bolts is required; if the support washers are loose, the supports need to be replaced.
