Known Problems

A hard starting condition may be due to low fuel pressure. Our technicians tell us the powertrain control module (PCM) should energize the fuel pump for 2 seconds when the ignition is turned on in order to properly pressurize the fuel system. Correcting this condition may require updating the PCM software.

The Check Engine Light may illuminate accompanied by a code P0133 (bank1 O2 sensor) stored in the powertrain control module (PCM). This is commonly caused by a failed air/fuel sensor. Our technicians tell us a revised a/f senor and (PCM) software upgrade may be necessary to correct this concern.

The airbag light may illuminate due to damaged wires under the drivers and/or passenger front seat. Damaged wires should be repaired and properly secured to correct this issue.

An oil leak may develop form the right front axle seal. Our technicians tell us a revised axle seal is available to correct this concern.

A knocking sound may be noted from the engine when warm due to improper drive belt tension. Correcting the drive belt tension will commonly repair this concern.

An oil leak may develop form the right front axle seal. Our technicians tell us a revised axle seal is available to correct this concern.

An engine oil leak may develop from the front crankshaft seal due to hardening of the rubber seal. There is a revised seal and sleeve available to correct this concern. Our technicians tell us that changing the oil every 3000 miles may help prolong seal life.

A harsh downshift from the automatic transmission my be noted on deceleration. Updating the transmission control module (TCM) software may correct this concern. Software revisions are commonly most helpful on newer vehicles. once the mileage builds up a worn component could cause similar problems. Whenever major transmission work in performed, the transmission software should be updated as necessary.

A fuel odor may be noted with the source being difficult to locate. One or more of the fuel injectors may be leaking internally or externally. Our technicians tell us that revised fuel injectors are available to correct this concern.

The engine may be difficult to start in cold weather or at high altitude. Our technicians tell us there is a powertrain control module (PCM) software up grade which may help with these issues.

Creaking of squeaking noises may be noted from the sway bar bushings. Our technicians tell us revised bushings are available which should correct this concern.

 

Our technicians tell us these vehicles are sensitive to fuel quality. Using fuel of marginal quality can result in illumination of the Check Engine Light with misfire or oxygen sensor fault codes stored.

A squeak type noise may be noted from the top of the rack and pinion steering gear while turning the steering wheel. This is commonly caused by friction between the steering pinion shaft and its seal. Our technicians recommend to replace the pinion seal and use multi-purpose wheel bearing grease during reassembly to correct this concern.

A noise may develop from the rear driveshaft center support bearing requiring replacement of the failed bearing.

A squeaking noise or vibration may he noted from the driveshaft area. This can be caused by failing universal joint which will require replacement.
