The MAF sensor is prone to failure and will turn on the Check Engine Light when it fails.

A broken vacuum hose near the power steering pump deteriorates and can cause a rough idle and the Check Engine Light to illuminate

The AC evaporator is prone to leaking, causing the air conditioning system to lose refrigerant and stop blowing cold air.

A faulty RPM sensor can cause the Check Engine Light to come on and cause a "no start" condition, especially when the engine is warm.

The AC evaporator can develop leaks. If you have it replaced, it's a good idea to change the cabin air filter at the same time to help with cabin air quality.

The intake manifold gasket can leak and cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate, idle speed to be erratic and a hard starting engine. A hissing noise can often be heard from the gasket area when the leak is bad enough. Removal of the intake manifold is needed to replace the gasket.

One or both of the front wheel bearings may fail resulting in a rumbling noise from the front wheel area when driving over 25 mph.

The AC evaporator can develop a leak resulting in insufficient AC cooling. Our technicians recommend when replacing the evaporator, have a pollen filter kit installed to help with air quality in the cabin.
