Various issues with the electric power steering system may develop and could require replacement of steering column assembly.
The 30amp high speed cooling fan fuse may blow due to high start up loads associated with the high speed cooling fan motor. Our technicians tell us the high speed cooling fan wiring and fuse should be upgraded to a 40amp circuit to correct this concern. The fan wiring MUST be upgraded along with the fuse to handle the increased current flow.
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.
The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Our technicians tell us that operating the engine with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.
The engine vacuum hose to the MAP sensor may crack resulting in a vacuum leak causing the engine to run rough and/or stall.
One or more of the power windows may stop working due to a failed window switch. Failed switches will require replacement.
The anti-lock brake (ABS) accumulator may fail causing loss of power brake assist. (The brake pedal will become very hard.)
Vehicles with a 3.5L or 3.9L V6 engine may develop an engine oil leak from the front crankshaft seal. Our technicians tell us a revised front crankshaft seal is available to correct this concern.
The rear light socket plate may fail causing a brake light or other rear light to stop working.
The mode and temperature door actuators may fail causing improper air flow or temperature output from the heating and AC (HVAC) system.
