Known Problems

The water pump can fail causing noise on the left side of the engine and overheating. Other symptoms include coolant loss and leakage at the front/left area of the engine.

 

Oil can leak from the oil pressure sensor causing a loss of pressure at the sensor and illumination of the oil light.

The electrical contact on the starter solenoid can come loose causing a problem where the starter intermittently does not crank.

The direct ignition cassette can fail causing the engine to die while driving, and/or it will crank but start. Diagnosis may also discover trouble codes for random misfires.

Our technicians report failures of various components in the audio system. Speaker, control unit, and steering wheel button failures are all possible.

2.0L engines may become low on engine coolant with no cause found for the coolant loss. Our technicians tell us than in some cases the engine block may require replacement due to porosity.

The wiring for the transfer case speed sensor can fail causing sporadic operation of the AWD (All Wheel Drive) system.

The trunk module can fail causing the tailgate to malfunction when opening or closing.

Oil leaks from the timing cover, valve cover, and/or rear main seal may be due to excessive crankcase pressure. An updated PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) kit was released to fix this concern.

If you hear knocking noises while driving over bumps, the front ball joints should be inspected. The upper and lower ball joints are known to wear.
