Cars using biofuel typically have problems with injection pump failures; symptoms can include a "no start" condition or external pump leaks.

A defective vehicle speed sensor can cause problems with the cruise control and speedometer operation, as well as erratic shifting. The connectors on the sensors are also susceptible to corrosion, which will create similar symptoms. Any of these problems can cause Check Engine Light illumination.

Illumination of the Check Engine Light may be the result of a loose or worn gas cap.

The speedometer may read higher than the actual vehicle speed as a result of the driven gear calibration. Our technicians tell us a updated speedometer driven gear is available to correct this issue.

2.0L turbo charged engines may develop a hesitation on acceleration and/or illumination of the Check Engine Light due to a failed high pressure fuel pump or a worn camshaft follower or camshaft. Our technicians tell us that whenever the high pressure fuel pump is replaced the camshaft and the follower should be checked for wear. The camshaft lobe pushes on the follower to operate the high pressure fuel pump. Frequent oil changes and use of synthetic oil may help with this wear issue.

brakes apply on there own while driving until fully locked

When you are driving the temperature gauge go up and down .Please assist.

The transmission has numerous problems; symptoms can range from shuddering to completely dying. The majority of the TSBs (service bulletins) require an overhaul of the transmission. Updated internal parts are available.  
The ABS master cylinder assembly may fail internally causing the ABS light to illuminate.

An engine oil leak may develop from the rear of the engine. This is commonly caused by a failed oil pump drive o-ring seal. The leaking o-ring should be replaced to correct this concern.

A defective vehicle speed sensor can cause problems with the cruise control and speedometer operation, as well as erratic shifting. The connectors on the sensors are also susceptible to corrosion, which will create similar symptoms. Any of these problems can cause Check Engine Light illumination.

The manual transmission my be difficult to shift due to worn synchronizer rings. Our technicians tell us that the transmission must be removed and disassembled to confirm the fault and perform repairs if necessary.

On 2.4L 4 cylinder engines a whining noise may be noted when the engine is cold and the rpm is in the 1800-2000 range. Our technicians tell us that most commonly this type of noise is coming from the engine oil pump. The repair is to replace the front case assembly and both the drive and driven oil pump gears.

The climate control system can fail or perform erratically due to internal problems with the climate control button electrical contacts. Replacement of the climate control assembly is commonly required to correct this problem.

A defective vehicle speed sensor can cause problems with the cruise control and speedometer operation, as well as erratic shifting. The connectors on the sensors are also susceptible to corrosion, which will create similar symptoms. Any of these problems can cause Check Engine Light illumination.

On certain models the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) misinterprets data from the coolant sensor and sets a false Check Engine light (MIL). A software update from Honda is required for this repair.

A squeak may be noted when applying or release the clutch pedal on vehicles so equipped. Our technicians tell us that lubricating the clutch return spring will correct this problem.

A hard shifting concern may develop. If this occurs a friction modifier can be added to the manual transmission fluid to help minimize this issue.

The steering wheel position sensor may fail causing the Service Stability message to be displayed.

t is not uncommon for the clear coat paint to develop white spots and begin peeling. In most cases Mitsubishi will not cover out of warranty repairs for this condition.

I own a 2006 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 6 speed manual transmission 6 cyl. 4.0L. The clutch pedal safety switch has broken loose from the firewall. This is a very common design flaw that Daimler Chrysler/Jeep has known about for decades but refuses to compensate owners for or do a recall on. Getto fixes include workarounds like placing a fuse into an empty fuse slot or bypassing the switch altogether. Along with that, the clutch pedal rod also...

Some models have tandem hydraulic pumps—one section for power steering and the other for suspension adjustment. These pumps are prone to leakage from either section.

A worn steering dampening shock can cause a fluid leak at the front of the vehicle. If a leak is noted from the dampening shock, our technicians tell us that it should be replaced.
