It is not unusual for engine vacuum hoses or sensor electrical connectors to cause driveability concerns and/or the Check Engine Light to illuminate.
The engine vacuum hoses may be misrouted after major engine repair, causing various drivability concerns.
A wire for the engine temperature gauge or warning light may short-circuit and cause erratic operation of the temperature gauge/light.
The intake manifold gasket will often be a source of vacuum leaks. This will cause a rough idle and the Check Engine Light will illuminate. Replacement of the gasket is required to resolve this issue.
The sliding door track and guides may become worn causing the sliding door to come off track.
The roller on the window guide attached to the bottom of the window glass may break off and cause the window to come off track.
The air conditioning compressor may become noisy or develop a refrigeration leak, requiring replacement.
Some vehicles may exhibit a "buzz", whining", or "moaning" like noise from the transmission when reverse gear is selected. The condition is caused by a resonance of the transmission regulator valve system. Our technicians tell us that the repair involves replacing the transmission regulator (aluminum) valve with a steel one.
