The idle air control motors tend to become carboned up at around 100,000 miles and will cause a start and stall and/or stalling at stop sign problems. Many times these valves can be cleaned, however, the sure bet is to replace the idle air control motor and clean the throttle body.
A code P0770 or P0773 may occur at higher mileages which indicates that the 3-way lock-up solenoid could be defective and may need replacement.
In some vehicles, the automatic transmission over heat light may come with sustained highway driving or driving at a sustained speed. Flushing the transmission and changing from Dextron lll to Dextron ll can help remedy this problem.

It is important to regularly check the valve clearance as the exhaust valves may become too tight. This will lead to valve failures, which are expensive to repair.

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.
