If a squeaking noise is heard while turning the steering wheel, the outer tie rod ends may be worn and should be replaced.

It is not uncommon for the intake manifold and/or valve cover gaskets to develop a coolant or oil leak. Leakage from the intake manifold may result in coolant in the engine oil. Coolant mixing with the engine oil severally impacts the lubrication ability of the oil. Internal engine may result if this condition is not repaired promptly.

The synchronizer shaft for the camshaft position sensor can cause a loud squeak or chirping noise due to failure of the upper bushing. The noise may be erratic and is usually present when the engine is warm.

A creak/pop noise while turning may mean that updated steering rack bushing tubes need to be installed.

The magnet for the camshaft position sensor may fall out of its mount and damage the synchronizers. This causes long crank times when starting the engine and may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. If this happens, both the magnets and the synchronizers need to be replaced.

4.0L V6 engines may develop a buzzing type noise from the upper engine area at about 1900 RPM, under light acceleration. Our technicians tell us this can be caused by loose ignition coil bracket bolts. Coil bracket bolts should be checked for the correct torque before further diagnoses is performed.

The battery light may illuminate on the instrument panel because the alternator wire harness connector is damaged. A new connector kit is available and should be installed to correct this concern.

While steering, if you hear a clunk or a rattle, or if you experience premature tire wear, this could indicate the inner tie rod ends are loose or worn and will require replacement.

the pins will pull out of the connector for the transceiver ring,the connector is under the dash right above where your shins are.the wires pull out due to tilting the steering wheel and not enough slack in the harness.

The adhesive holding the glass convertible window gives out and the window delaminates from the outer convertible shell. I used 3M VHB 2-sided adhesive tape (the same type that is used to hold glass panels to the outside of skyscrapers) to hold the window back in. It worked great, but long term effectiveness is still unknown.

For the 2.3L 4 Cylinder and 5.0L V8 engine, the electrical ignition switch poses a fire hazard. An updated switch is available.

If you experience difficulty starting the engine when cold, stalling at idle, or hesitations during acceleration, it may be the idle air bypass valve. This valve helps the vehicle idle steady when the accelerator pedal is not pressed.

idle will race intermittently. in spec failure of the throttle position sensor,will not trip a code but sensor will be biased on the higher side and the pcm take the idle up. replace tp sensor.
