A defective vehicle speed sensor can cause problems with the cruise control and speedometer operation, as well as erratic shifting. The connectors on the sensors are also susceptible to corrosion, which will create similar symptoms. Any of these problems can cause Check Engine Light illumination.

If you hear a popping, clunking, or snapping sound from the front of the vehicle after five miles of driving on smooth surfaces, the outer tie rod ends may be worn and require replacement.
Defective speed sensors on the transmission can cause problems with the cruise control and speedometer operation, as well as erratic shifting. The connectors on the sensors can corrode and/or the connector terminals can spread (poor connection), which will create similar symptoms. Any of these problems can cause Check Engine Light illumination.
Intermittently, the key may not start the car or release from the ignition. If it is excessively worn, replace the key. If the new key doesn't work, replacing the lock cylinder including tumblers should correct this concern.
Three times, while using windshield wipers, the wiper arms have caught and tangled with each other causing the blades to break and the arm assembly to bend and become unusable.
The problem was solved by repositioning the wiper arms, having more distance between them when they are at rest, tightening the arm bolts with non-loosening bolts and replacing the 28" blades with 26" blades.
A dirty throttle body may cause low engine idle speed or frequent stalling, as oily residue blocks air flow in the throttle when the throttle is closed. Throttle body cleaning may be necessary to correct this condition. Our technicians caution against spraying cleaner directly onto the throttle body as this may damage the throttle position sensor (TPS).
A loosening (or loss) of the nut retaining the engine cooling fan can cause a vibration. If not addressed promptly, the fan blade may not turn, causing the engine to overheat. A revised engine cooling fan retaining nut kit has been released.
Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.
Triggered by a short in the rear wiper motor/circuit (which causes a fuse to blow), the airbag warning light can illuminate erroneously.
Enjine quits at stops. It also lunges when you take your foot of the gas. If you watch the tacometer when comming to a stop the the rpm's drop ( and someetimes stalls) and then serges up 500 rpm's. I replaced the IAC, and the TPS.It didn't help at all.What's next? EGR?
