The intake manifold gasket can fail causing vacuum a leak and/or a rough idle condition. Replacement of the leaking gasket will be necessary to correct this concern.
Excessive engine vibration or knocking noises heard while the engine is idling, being started or switched off are usually caused by a defective engine mount at the top right side of the engine. A redesigned engine mount is available to alleviate this problem.
The DPFE (differential pressure feedback EGR) sensor tends to fail. The DPFE sensor monitors function of the EGR valve by measuring pressure changes in the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system. Symptoms of a failing DPFE sensor are hesitation or stumbling when driving along with illumination of the Check Engine Light.
If the engine is misfiring, it may be caused by a damaged wire(s) which connect the fuel injectors to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). The damaged wire(s) can be repaired or the emission wire harness replaced. A misfire can result in a loss of engine performance and illumination of the Check Engine Light.
Some models may have a problem with stalling under light acceleration. Updated software for the powertrain control module (PCM) is available which may help with this concern.
If the engine surges and hesitates, our technicians recommend checking the condition of the ground on top of the engine block, under the intake. Restore the grounding point if it is found to be corroded or compromised.
The mass airflow sensor may fail causing a stalling and/or lack of power. A faulty mass airflow sensor should be replaced to correct this concern.
Everyone and their mother has a transfer case leak on their speed6.
They must have made this system out of the cheapest aluminum that they could find.

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.
The automatic head lights may be to sensitive or not sensitive enough depending on the setting. The appears to be a design characteristic of this model.
