Excessive oil consumption—defined as more than one quart per 1,000 miles (on vehicles with less than 50,000 miles) or more than one quart per 750 miles (on vehicles with more than 50,000 miles)—is common. Replacing the valve guides with an updated version should fix the problem.

A broken rear torsion bar can cause an abnormal noise over bumps. The torsion bar is part of the rear trailing arm, which must be replaced to correct this issue.

Fuel injectors or their o-rings may leak fuel causing the engine to burn too much fuel.

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

It is not unusual for engine vacuum hoses or sensor electrical connectors to cause driveability concerns and/or the Check Engine Light to illuminate.

A squeaking noise from the exhaust may be caused by a worn sealing ring between the exhaust manifold and the exhaust pipe.
The retainers on the horizontal wood door trim tend to break after repeated door slamming. Our technicians tell us that the trim can be secured by using silicone adhesive.
It is recommend to change the engine oil and adjust it to the proper level and run the engine to bleed any trapped air from the valve lash adjusters before testing for excessive bleed down.
Oil leaks may develop from the valve cover gaskets, cam plugs, camshaft seals, front crankshaft seal, and the oil filler bracket.
The alternator belt may develop a chirping or snapping noise over time due to pulley misalignment. There is a revised alternator bracket to address this concern. If there is still an issue after the bracket has been replaced washers can be used to align the alternator pulley.
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.
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 hesitation on acceleration may be caused by a plugged EGR valve back pressure tube. EGR valve replacement is not generally required.
The retainers on the horizontal wood door trim tend to break after repeated door slamming. Our technicians tell us that the trim can be secured by using silicone adhesive.
The brake pedal may not return to its fully released position causing the brake lights to stay on. If no brake pedal return spring is in stalled there is a spring kit available. If the brake pedal return spring does not correct the problem the actuator piston should be replaced.
