Question Answered: 

Pushrod is right on, if that does not fix it and the latch just seems to be no "latching" it could be a internal latch failure, or the linkage that goes to the latch from the handle or lock actuator has become stiff or seized and holding the latch in the "open" position. If that is the case you would need to have the interior panel removed to gain access to all the linkage. There are alot of special fasteners, unless you have the special pry tools you may want to leave this to the professionals to help prevent damage to the interior panel occurring. If you have any questions please feel free to to call or stop by. Your Curt's Service Team 248-545-0500

Question Answered: 

If all of those electrical components cut out at the same time it has to be something that supplies power to all of them. If you checked fuses and they were good, it could be a relay, electrical connection, or a computer module fault or failure. That vehicle communicates on a CAN bus, if anything fails on the bus, it can sometimes take down a portion, or the whole thing. You will need a diagnosis by a professional repair center to figure that one out. They will also need to have the ability to re- flash / program control units as well.

Question Answered: 

Line replacement can be a tricky item to quote as they are for the most part all custom made. It also depends on where to and from you are replacing the lines. Some times you can patch a section in, others you need to replace from source to destination. It is best to have someone who is familiar with the repair to visually inspect and give you a proper quote rather than a guesstimate. Let us know if we can be of further help. -Curt's Service Team 248-545-0500

Your leak could be coming from the water pump, or the timing cover.

Question Answered: 

Usually when the blower does not work on high it is a faulty blower switch. Though it is merely a guess, the better thing to do would be to inspect the power coming out of the switch and the blower resistor to see what the exact reason is. Somewhere there is a loss of voltage causing your problem. High speed sometimes has it's own circuit and protection. Feel free to stop by for assistance if needed. -Curt's Service Team 248-545-0500

Question Answered: 

Hello, There are allot of different sources for noise. If a qualified technician has not inspected yet you will definitely want to start there. A tinny rattle is common to come from the exhaust heat shields and their clamps. A "short rod" is not a good description of a part or assembly. What that individual may have been referencing is a "piston-slap" noise which is not harmful and is present on several different engines. If this is the noise that is of concern I would not recommend to do anything as it is strictly a noise, usually only after start up when cold and is very costly to repair with updated and over sized parts. Start with the basics and have a professional check it out for you. Get a diagnosis with a repair estimate, than a description of what will happen if no action is taken. Feel free to stop by or schedule an appointment, we can help. -Curt's Service Team 248-545-0500
