An intermittent connection in the crank position sensor wire connector can cause poor engine performance or the engine may crank but not start.

A rattle from the rear of the vehicle may indicate that the rear shock absorbers are defective. Updated shocks are available; however, careful inspection of all suspension components should be performed before any parts are replaced.

An internal oil leak may develop from the intake manifold plenum gasket. The symptoms could include engine spark knock on acceleration and increased oil consumption. Our technicians tell us that replacing the plenum gasket should correct this issue.

Cars without ABS suffer master cylinder failure. The brake pedal will be spongy in feel, the pedal travel will seem excessive, and overall braking performance will be poor.

A defective EGR valve can cause a popping or knocking noise from the engine compartment. It is usually heard when the engine is warm (between 1600 and 1800 RPM).

Debris and corrosion in the AC housing may cause the AC evaporator core to develop a refrigerant leak.

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 defective anti-lock brake system (ABS) pump and/or leaking piston seals in the master cylinder can cause excessive pedal effort, lack of stopping power, and abnormal pump noise. Diagnoses will be required to determine the root cause of any braking issues and the component(s) that will require replacement.

On the 3.9L V6 and 5.2L V8, rerouting the ignition coil wire and spark plug wires can help solve a misfire and/or surge problem that occurs at approximately 45 mph. A service bulletin was published that outlines the specifics of the repair. It states the rerouting procedure should be performed before other repairs are done for misfires, surging or spark knock.
