Known Problems

If the brake pedal feels hard the first time it is pressed in the morning, it could be due to a problem with the vacuum supply hose for the brake booster. A revised brake booster hose is available to address this concern.

The ABS modulator (hydraulic unit) can leak air into the brake system and cause a low brake pedal. A new ABS modulator will be needed if it is diagnosed to be the source of the leak.

Issues with the air fuel sensor (oxygen sensor) can set a Check Engine Light.  A failed sensor will need to be replaced for this repair.

 

The distributors on higher mileage vehicles can leak oil onto the heater hose causing the hose to soften and break. Heater hose breakage will cause a coolant leak.

A long cranking time before the engine starts might require a PCM software update and replacement of the fuel pressure regulator.

The AC condenser failed due to contact with road debris and a lack of protection for the condenser.

A chirping noise coming from the timing belt area can be caused by a misaligned, or tilted idler pulley.

Leaking gaskets around the tail lights can allow water entry into the tail light assembly. New gaskets should fix this concern.

The front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn too thin, replaced to correct this issue.

Occasionally, the anti-lock brake (ABS) warning light may illuminate. This could be due to a faulty rear wheel speed sensor. The sensor design has been updated and revised parts are available to correct this problem.

 

The car may drift to the right because the camber (alignment setting) is set unevenly. A 4-wheel alignment will be needed to reset the camber angle.

One or both of the rear sway bar end links may break resulting in a knocking noise from the rear of the vehicle.
