Vibration problems from the rear brake rotors are common and require replacement of the pads and rotors, and the installation of special shims. The symptoms often occur when the brakes are used heavily from repeated braking, braking from high speeds, and braking while going downhill. The entire vehicle can vibrate and shudder, like it is being driven over train tracks.

The gear position sensor on the transmission may fail, resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light and/or a no start condition.

The intake manifold gasket will often be a source of vacuum leaks. This will cause a rough idle and the Check Engine Light will illuminate. Replacement of the gasket is required to resolve this issue.

Oil in coolant. Had to replace head gaskets.

The engine will crank over but will not start. The Check Engine Light is on and/or there is a diagnostic code for the engine coolant temperature sensor (ECT). This may be caused by a faulty sensor (located at the back of the cylinder head).

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.
