When shifting from Drive to Reverse (or vice versa), worn outer CV joints may cause a clunk or clicking noise. A loose axle nut can cause the same symptoms.

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.

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

A dirty throttle body may cause low engine idle speed or frequent stalling, as oily residue blocks air flow in the throttle when the throttle is closed. Throttle body cleaning may be necessary to correct this condition. Our technicians caution against spraying cleaner directly onto the throttle body as this may damage the throttle position sensor (TPS).

The window glass lift plates tend to bend or break and cause the window glass to tilt and bind in the door. The lift plates can be replaced separately from the window regulator. In more severe cases, however, a new window regulator may also require replacement.

Worn sway bar bushings or sway bar end links may cause a rattling or clunking noise from the front suspension during low-speed driving. Though not always the root cause, front struts are often replaced for this condition.

Fatigued or broken wires to the output speed sensor can cause problems with the cruise control, erratic shifting, and speedometer operation. This may also cause Check Engine Light illumination.

The fuel level sensors can wear out and cause erratic or inaccurate fuel gauge readings.

Software updates are available to address transmission issues. However, due to the age of these vehicles, mechanical failures are more likely to be causing transmission problems. If a mechanical failure is repaired or the transmission is replaced, it is important to make sure any software updates have been taken care of. Failure to do so could result in continuing transmission issues.

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.

A ticking sound (lasting only two to three seconds) may be heard when starting a cold engine. Worn swivel pads on the exhaust rocker arms are commonly the cause. Worn swivel pads will require replacement.

A damaged cam position sensor (or its wires and connector) can cause intermittent stalling, stumbles, or hard starting.
