Known Problems

A stalling issue may occur if the battery goes dead or is disconnected and the "idle learn" procedure is not performed. For more information on "relearning" the engine idle speed, please click here»

The transmission may develop a harsh 1-2 shift and/or illumination of the Check Engine Light with code P1870 stored. This can be caused by wear of the bore for the TCC isolator and regulator valves in the valve body. This condition does not commonly occur until the transmission reaches normal operating temperature. If the valve body is worn, replacement will be necessary to correct this concern.

The intake manifold gasket may develop external engine oil leak. The manifold gasket will need to be replaced to correct this issue.

Extended life coolant may become contaminated and require cooling system service before the recommended 100,000 miles.

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.

Spark plug wires may fail, becoming electrically open. The will result in an engine misfire. Failed spark plug wires should be replaced.

Our technicians recommend to replace the fuel system filter every 30,000 miles.

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

One or both secondary air injection check valves may become restricted causing poor air flow resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light. It is often recommend to replace both check valves even if a fault code is set for only one bank of cylinders. Replacing only one valve may result in a return trip to the repair shop.

The intake manifold or PCV valve hose may develop an engine vacuum leak causing a rougher than normal idle am may result in illumination of the check engine (SES) light.

The fuel injectors may short out electricity causing a rougher than normal idle.

Body: A dirty throttle body may cause a lower than normal engine idle resulting in a stalling condition. A stalling condition may also result if an idle learn procedure is not performed if the battery goes dead or is disconnected.

Failure of the rear transmission mounts is common.

The tail or brake lights may be dim due to a poor ground connection inside the light socket. Failed light sockets will require replacement.

The trunk pull down switch may fail causing the trunk lid not to close completely. Our technicians tell us that the failed switch can be replaced without changing the complete pull down motor assembly.
