Known Problems

Low fuel pressure may be caused by a faulty fuel pump check valve.

A faulty transmission control module may fail causing the engine to stall after starting or the transmission to become stuck in 2nd gear.

Hard starting or rough idle after the vehicle is parked for a period of time may be caused by leaking fuel injectors.

Abnormal fuel pump noise may be noted.There is a revised fuel pump, wiring harness, fuel tank insulators, fuel tank straps, and fuel tank available depending on the vehicle.

Corrosion on the coolant temperature sensor wiring may cause a hard or no start condition in cold ambient temperatures.

A slight creaking coming from the steering column while turning may be caused by the upper half of the steering column shroud. Our technicians tell us that removing some of the material from the upper shroud will eliminate the noise.
Revised transfer and output gears are available to correct a load sensitive high frequency whine from the transaxle.
Intermittent transaxle shudder during torque converter clutch apply may be caused by transmission fluid issues. Our technicians tell us that changing the fluid and filter, driving the vehicle 10 miles and changing the transaxle fluid again and correct this issue.

The AC/heater (HVAC) system may unexpectedly switch to the defrost mode when accelerating. This system is operated by engine vacuum and should be inspected for any vacuum leaks if this problem develops.  There is also a revised vacuum check valve available to address this concern.

Odors from the AC (HVAC) system may be caused by microbial growth on the AC evaporator. Our technicians recommend to keep the AC inlet free of leaves and debris and treating the evaporator and housing using a disinfectant spray.

Corrosion on the coolant temperature sensor wiring may cause a hard or no start condition in cold ambient temperatures.

The ABS light may illuminate due to poor electrical connections at the ABS system and warning lamp relays. Updated wire harness kits are available to make the necessary repairs.
A rattle noise may be noted from the rear brake pads which is eliminated when applying the brakes lightly. Revised rear brake pads are available to correct this condition.

Oil leaks may develop from the camshaft plug, camshaft seal, valve cover, cylinder head gasket, and distributor.

Timing belt replacement should be done at 60K intervals or sooner in very hot climates. The timing belt tensioner pulley should be replaced any time the timing belt is replaced.
