Known Problems

1.8L engines may experience excess engine oil consumption. Our technicians tell us updated software is available for the engine control module (ECM) to address this problem.

Some engines may experience a brief knocking or rattle on cold start up. Our technicians tell us replacing the camshaft timing gear assembly with upgraded parts will generally correct this concern.

An abnormal noise or vibration on acceleration from rest or on gear shift may develop. Our technicians tell us a redesigned left side engine mount insulator is available to address this problem.

An extended cranking or no start condition, and/or illumination of the Check Engine Light with codes P0300-P0304 and/or P0015 may be noted. Our technicians tell us updated powertrain control module (PCM) software is available to correct these concerns.

Vehicles with an automatic transmission may illuminate the Check Engine Light with code P0713 stored, related to the transmission fluid sensor. Our technicians tell us a revised, internal transmission wire harness is available to correct this concern. The harness does not require transmission removal to install.

Some vehicles may develop a condition where they cannot be shifted from "Park" to "Drive" and/or multiple warning lights illuminate when exposed to extreme cold conditions (-14 degrees F) or lower. Our technicians tell us the ignition (IG) relay should be replaced with an updated part to correct this concern.

Vehicles fitted with remote start may encounter a dead battery after sitting for a few days. This can be due to a parasitic draw caused by the remote start computer. Our technicians remind us proper diagnostic procedures should be followed before replacing the remote start module with an updated part.
