On 3.9L V6 and 5.9L V8 engines, the intake manifold gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.

Insufficient fuel pressure may be caused by particulate contaminates or other type of substances by-passing the primary fuel pick-up screen and resulting in fuel pump failure. Our technicians recommended to replace entire fuel pump module assembly as two (2) filters, primary and secondary are included with the assembly.

A delayed upshift condition may be experienced for about 1/4 mile in cold weather (32 degrees F and below) and is most noticeable after the vehicle has been parked for 8 or more hours. Our technicians tell us the repair involves replacing teflon governor drive seal rings with cast iron seal rings.

Oil seepage can occur at the speed sensor or speed sensor gear adapter (speedometer adapter). A redesigned speed sensor is available and the adapter may need to be replaced.

A clogged or restricted transmission fluid cooler system can be the cause of reoccurring transmission failures. Our technicians tell us that if your transmission has failed due to lack of lubrication the transmission fluid cooler and lines should be thoroughly inspected for restrictions.
The transmission may exhibit delayed light throttle upshifts and harsh engagement into reverse or drive. Our technicians tell us the repair involves the adjustment of the throttle valve cable and replacement of the return spring.
Some vehicles may exhibit one or more of the following: Spark knock complaints when the vehicle is under load, various single cylinder misfire, and surge in 4th gear (around 45 mph). Our technicians tell us that rerouting the coil and spark plug wires to minimize induction effects will commonly correct this condition. If wires must cross during the reroute procedure, they must cross at a 90 degree angle.
A squeaking/clicking noise from the rear of the vehicle may be coming from the rear springs. Our technicians tell us that a kit is available including spring tip liners and clinch clips.
An erratic idle, stall on hot restart and/or low speed deceleration. may be caused by a faulty idle air control motor. Our technicians tell us there is a revised IAC motor to correct this condition.

The distributor pickup plate may fail causing Intermittent Stalling or No Start Condition, usually when engine is hot.
Excess cooling fan noise may be caused buy a faulty cooling fan and fan clutch.
The fuse may blow repeatedly for the HVAC blower motor or the motor may stop working all together. Our technicians tell us that can often be repaired by replacing the blower motor switch with a revised switch and installing a wiring harness with a relay assembly.
Hard Starting, Rough Idle, Black Exhaust Smoke, Poor fuel mileage may indicate a leaking injector or more commonly a leaking injector O-ring. Our technicians tell us that with engine idling and air cleaner removed, look into the throttle body with a flashlight, If fuel is seen dripping from around the injector, the O-ring is likely faulty. If fuel is dripping from the injector nozzle, replace the injector.
