A refrigerant leak may develop from the AC evaporator causing the AC to blow warm air. Verifying failure of this component is difficult. A good shop will use leak detection dye to verify a failing evaporator.
The AC idler pulley can fail causing a growling noise from the engine. A new idler pulley will be needed.
An oil leak at the spark plug area (spark plug tubes) can be caused by a failing valve cover sealing rubber and/or camshaft holder o-ring. The sealing rubber and o-ring will need to be replaced to address this issue.
On certain models the windshield wipers will not park in the proper place or won't shut off. The wiper motor must be replaced to repair this issue.
A fluid leak may develop from one or both front suspension struts. Replacing the struts (usually in pairs) will be necessary to take care of the problem.
