A defective fuel pump check valve (which maintains fuel pressure in the system when the vehicle is not running) may lead to long cranking times or hard starting (sometimes with stalling). The fuel pump should be replaced. However, if these symptoms are accompanied by Check Engine Light illumination, there may be a problem with the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor.

A loose timing chain on early models will produce a rattle (in the front of the engine) because the chain hits the guide. The timing chain should be replaced (the cam sprocket should always be replaced at the same time). Remove and discard the timing chain guide; on later V6 models, the guide has been eliminated.

The AC drive belt tensioner bracket can crack and cause the belt to make noise or jump off the pulleys. The AC system may stop working as well. A cracked bracket could damage the cylinder head; it should be replaced.

Be sure to follow the maintenance schedule for the timing belt. Our technicians recommend to always replace the timing belt tensioner at the same time as the timing belt.

There was a recall on the brake master cylinder in order to fix a problem that causes the brakes to drag when the brake pedal is not pressed. If the brakes drag, they will fade, causing overheating and increased stopping distance. The master cylinder is replaced under the recall.

A problem with the PCV system may cause excessive oil consumption or the vehicle to emit blue smoke (burning oil) at high engine speeds (RPM). Too much vacuum allows oil to be drawn into the intake.

On vehicles equipped with side airbags, placing articles under the seat can damage wiring. Loose, damaged, or dirty connectors under the seat are frequent causes for intermittent airbag lamp illumination.

An intermittent problem with static at startup or when the radio is switched to the satellite function can be fixed by replacing the satellite digital audio receiver (SDAR).

I have intermittent problems with my turn signal and hazard lights. They work sometimes, then don't even in the "blinker on" positions. What is happening is that the heater unit changes from defrost to general upper blower setting....when this happens, the turn signal stops working. It's getting worse.
