Vehicles with manual temperature control may develop a condition where warm air is coming from the instrument panel outlets when cold has been selected. Our technicians tell us a revised air distribution housing is available to correct this concern.
An abnormal noise may develop from the HVAC blower motor as a result of debris ingestion. After any debris is removed, an air baffle screen can be installed on the inlet opening under the cowl grill to try and prevent a re-occurrence of the problem.
EGR valve position sensor fault code(s) may be stored in the powertrain control module (PCM) resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light. A PCM software upgrade is available which may correct this issue.
A whine sound may develop from the power steering immediately after starting the engine at temperatures below 32 degrees. The repair may involve replacing the remote mounted power steering reservoir.
A squeak noise may be noted from the rear suspension. Replacement of the upper spring isolators and reorientation or the rear springs may be required to correct this condition.

Our technicians tell us if the grease is not applied in the correct location, the noise will remain.
The engine may be hard to start and/or illuminate the Check Engine Light with code P0340/P0344 stored. The common repair is to update the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) software. In some cases replacement of the camshaft position sensor may also be required.
On Vehicles with a 3.7L V6 or 4.7L V8 engine, the Check Engine Light may illuminate with code P013A and/or P013C. Or technicians tell us that updated software for the powertrain control module (PCM) is available to correct this concern.

Our technicians tell us that various driveability issues and/or illumination of the check engine or electronic stability program (ESP) warning lights may occur on vehicles with 3.7L V6 and 4.7L V8 engines. A powertrain control module (PCM) software upgrade is available which may correct these issues.
