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