3.0L engines may develop an excessive oil consumption issue. Blue oil smoke may be noted from the exhaust during deceleration conditions (high engine vacuum). Our technicians tell us that this condition can be caused by valve guides dropping out of position. Updated valve guides with a revised snap ring grove are available to correct this issue.

These engines are not equipped with an engine knock sensor. As a result engine ping may be noted under certain conditions Our technicians tell us the the timing can be retarded slightly using the factory scan tool to help eliminate this condition.
A moan or howl may be noted from the rear when the brakes are applied. It is recommended to check an repair or replace all rear brake components as necessary. If the noise is still present after repairs are completed then our technicians tell us that revised rear disc brake adapters are available which may help eliminate the noise.
The Check Engine Light may illuminate along with erratic shifting of the automatic transmission. Our technicians tell us that oil contamination or wire terminal damage at the transmission output speed sensor could be the cause.
The engine may not start or start and run poorly due to the timing belt jumping out of time. If this is the case our technicians tell us that the timing belt should be replaced and a "snubber" installed over the timing belt tensioner plunger.
