The idle air control motors tend to become carboned up at around 100,000 miles and can cause a start and stall and/or stalling at stop sign problems. Our technicians tell us that many times these motors can be cleaned, however, the sure bet is to replace the idle air control motor and clean the throttle body.

A squeak or groan noise may be noted from the front or rear suspension. Spraying a light lubricant on the suspension bushings 1-2 times per year may help eliminate the problem.

This car has occasional problems with the system that controls polluting emissions from evaporated gasoline.

The sensing element cracks and and reports an erroneous steady state lean condition which confuses the computer, which in turn makes the fuel mixture overly rich.
It is very important that the rear level sensor is properly bled after any brake work or the rear brake stopping efficiency may be compromised. The Front Brake Rotors can wear causing a pulsation felt in the brake pedal.
By 100,000 miles the ignition key tends to wear out and should be replaced or it may not work as well in the door locks or ignition switch.
