A failing crankshaft position sensor may cause the engine to stall intermittently.

To avoid illumination of the Check Engine Light due to random misfires, our technicians recommend replacing the spark plugs and wires at 80,000 miles instead of the GM recommendation of 100,000 miles.

A worn bushing in the transmission could cause a transmission fluid leak from the axle seal on the right side. To fix this problem, the transmission must be overhauled or disassembled to replace the worn bushing.

The transmission torque converter may fail causing the check engine (SES) light to illuminate. Our technicians tell us that internal transmission repairs are necessary to correct this fault.

The crankshaft position sensor may fail causing the engine to stall intermittently, the Check Engine Light may or may not illuminate.

Water may be drawn into the secondary air injection (AIR) pump causing the pump to fail and the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Our technicians tell us there is a kit available from General Motors to relocate the air intake for the pump which should prevent future damage from water intrusion.

A Loose or worn gas cap may cause Check Engine Light to illuminate.

A Loose or worn gas cap may cause Check Engine Light to illuminate.

The head light switch may fail causing erratic head light operation.

The radiator may leak from the plastic side tank area. The coolant loss could cause the engine to overheat. Our technicians warn that overheating these engines can lead to head gasket failure.

This engine may have problems with the head bolts pulling the threads out of the block and causing head gasket failure.

Overheating of the engine may cause the cylinder head to expand, severely straining the head bolts and damaging the threads in the engine block. This commonly results in a blown head gasket. Our technicians tell us the engine block threads must be repaired before the cylinder head is reinstalled.

The transmission pressure control solenoid may fail causing erratic shifting. Our technicians tell us that partial dis-assembly of the transmission is necessary to replace a failed pressure control solenoid.

An automatic transmission fluid leak may develop from the rubber section of a transmission cooler line. In some cases the rubber section of hose can be replaced. In others, the complete cooler line must be replaced to correct this type of leak.
