Known Problems

Spark plug tube seals fail, causing the tubes to fill with engine oil and the engine to misfire. As a result, the engine may run poorly and fuel economy can suffer.

The transmission has numerous problems; symptoms can range from shuddering to completely dying. The majority of the TSBs (service bulletins) require an overhaul of the transmission. Updated internal parts are available.  
During turning, squeaks can come from the strut area; the strut mount assembly should be replaced.

Hood misalignment, cowl cover misalignment, wiper module drain tube(s), and/or the lower plenum drain hose may cause the HVAC housing to leak water onto the passenger side floor. Diagnoses will be required to confirm the location of a water leak in the front passenger area.

The automatic transmission used in these vehicles have had a high failure rate. Failures can be due to internal component or electrical component failure.

An engine Oil leak may develop at the cam sensor o-ring seal. Our technicians tell us this is often misdiagnosed as an external head gasket leak.

One or more power windows may stop working due to a failed window motor or regulator. In some cases these items are replaced as a set. If not, diagnoses will be required to determine which is at fault.

Illuminated of the airbag warning light may be caused by a lost connection between the clockspring (behind the steering wheel) and the steering wheel-mounted electrical components. Other steering wheel-mounted controls like the horn, speed (cruise) control, or radio controls (if equipped) may be inoperative. There is a lifetime warranty on the clockspring as specified in a combination of recall campaigns.

Worn sway bar bushings or sway bar end links may cause a rattling or clunking noise from the front suspension during low-speed driving. Though not always the root cause, front struts are often replaced for this condition.

A defective anti-lock brake system (ABS) pump and/or leaking piston seals in the master cylinder can cause excessive pedal effort, lack of stopping power, and abnormal pump noise. Diagnoses will be required to determine the root cause of any braking issues and the component(s) that will require replacement.

Diagnoses will be required to determine the root cause of any braking issues and the component(s) that will require replacement.

Cars without ABS suffer master cylinder failure. The brake pedal will be spongy in feel, the pedal travel will seem excessive, and overall braking performance will be poor.
