Known Problems

Oil commonly leaks from the oil pan gasket requiring replacement of the gasket. Oil drops may be seen on the ground if the vehicle is parked over night.

Coolant leakage between the cylinder heads can be caused by failure of the oil cooler cover seal. Mixing of oil and coolant is possible and would be seen in the coolant expansion tank.

The exhaust flex pipe can fail causing excessive exhaust noise from the front/center area of the vehicle. The flex pipe is a flexible joint in the exhaust that allows for engine movement.

A weld for the catalytic converter mounting bracket and heat shield can fail. Rattling noise will be heard from the bottom/rear of the engine compartment.

The exhaust center muffler can fail causing excessive exhaust noise.

Oil can leak from the oil pump cover seal. Oil will be visible at the bottom and rear of the engine. The seal will need to be replaced.
