Known Problems

If the vehicle cannot return to run position after start or if the interior fan is not getting power, it may be the electrical portion of the ignition switch has become erratic or has failed. The entire switch assembly should be replaced.

Due to air leaks at various locations after the mass air flow sensor, the Check Engine Light may illuminate with fault codes P0171 and P0174 stored.

A failing mass air flow sensor or EVAP system purge valve can cause engine misfire concerns. Proper diagnoses of engine misfire issues is necessary to correct these issues.


A fault with the camshaft tensioner may cause camshaft timing issues resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light.

An engine oil leak may develop for the valve cover gasket. Gasket replacement will be required to correct these leaks.

Engine oil leaks can occur at the rear main seal and/or intermediate support cover o-ring; a revised seal is available. A careful diagnosis with proper tools is necessary to verify dimensional accuracy of the crankshaft to engine block.

Depending on driving habits, brake pad and rotor wear can be excessive. Our technicians recommend regular brake inspection.

Smoke, oil consumption, and fuel trim issues with various fault codes can be traced to an internal leak at the oil separator.
