An oil leak may develop from the rear of the engine, which in some cease may be caused by engine block porosity near the high pressure oil gallery at the rear of the engine block. Our technicians tell us the repair involves resealing the area of the leak using an aluminum putty,

If a droning noise is coming from the fuel tank, it may be caused by a noisy fuel pump check valve. A fuel pump assembly, with a revised unit, is available address this concern.

Excess effort may be required to engage the rear defroster switch. This is commonly caused by flexing of the automatic temperature control housing. Our technicians tell us this can be corrected by securing the control housing using special screws available from Jeep dealers.

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.

Front brake rotors can wear causing a pulsation felt in the brake pedal. Our technicians often recommend replacement of the front rotors and brake pads as the best option to correct this condition.

The manual transmission may become difficult to shift into reverse. Our technicians tell us that the repair involves replacing the shift control lever assembly with a revised part.

I had just merged with the interstate and had been driving about 1 mile at 65mph when my 2008 KIA Rio 5 lost power. I looked down and saw a blinking engine light and possible electric (everything was happening very fast) light. At that moment I heard a very loud metallic "crunch", very hard to describe but one that just tells you something very bad just happened. Thinking that when I glanced at the dash I may have hit something I checked th...

heater blows cold air even after letting warm up before driving after 6miles starts to get warm but not hot

Some models exhibit a high cold idle caused by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) misinterpreting data and causing the Check Engine light (MIL) to illuminate. A software update from Honda is needed for this repair.

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.

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.

Condensation may develop in the heater case which can cause a musty odor from the heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) system.  Our technicians tell us a cleaner is available for the heater case. Also, the drain system should be checked for debris.

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.

Engine would start then immediately die, after a few attempts the engine would then start and run normally. It was found that when the car died the radio would not be on. Detent had been lost between run and key-on positions of key switch, so the force of the start return spring caused the switch to go to the almost off position, where the engine red light, ecm, etc would come on but not the fuel pump, and radio would be both off.

I live where there is a lot of winter driving. All of the doors have rotted on the bottom. I do wash the car at the car wash but this still occurred.

Due to wear of mechanical parts in the control head, the buttons on temperature control assemblies work erratically or not at all. These control heads need to be replaced for this concern or when the display screen starts to fade out.

The Check Engine Light can illuminate with codes due to the lack of EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) flow caused. This is commonly a result of a clogged passage in the intake manifold. To correct this problem, the EGR valve has to be removed and the passage cleaned thoroughly. Partial restriction of this passage can cause smog test failures for the NOx emissions without causing a drivability symptom.

Some engines have had the problem of the crankshaft pulley bolt coming loose. This will make a rattling noise as the engine idles. Our technicians tell us that the pulley bolt should have a thread locker applied and then retorqued.
