Air flow and oxygen sensor failures are common and can cause drivability concerns.

Oil and carbon tend to build up, creating restrictions in the intake manifold. Symptoms will be loss of power (sometimes severe) and poor fuel economy.

Poor drivability symptoms—including hard starting—can be caused by coolant temperature sensor and oxygen sensor faults.

Air flow and oxygen sensor failures are common and can cause drivability concerns.

Extensive transmission damage can occur in some of the automatic transmission models when the transmission oil cooler fails and allows coolant to mix with the automatic transmission fluid.

Shifting issues due to internal problems in high mileage automatic transmissions can be difficult to resolve without transmission replacement.
