Summary on March 31, 1999
Vehicle description: passenger vehicles. a malfunction or failure of a coolant system component, such as a thermostat, water pump, or fan belt, can result in significantly increased coolant temperature and system pressure. if the indications of a critical overheating condition is not noticed by the driver, it is possible that damage to, or failure of, a coolant system component could occur.
Years Affected:1992, 1993, 1994, 1995
Summary on October 30, 1997
The cruise control and throttle cables are attached to the same throttle valve actuating lever at the throttle housing. it is possible that the plastic bushing on either cable could break due to environmental influences coupled with vibration. if the bushing breaks, the outer cable housing can separate from the bushing. in this case, during application of the throttle pedal without cruise control being engaged, the outer tube could catch on the edge of the broken bushing.
Years Affected:1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997
Summary on September 30, 1996
The air bag contact ring locking tab located in the steering wheel assembly can break without warning.
Year Affected:1992
Summary on August 29, 1994
The adhesive material of the two piece throttle body heater migrates into the circulation chamber causing build up of impurities and restriction of flow within the chamber. this condition and water vapors from the crank that freezes at low ambient air temperatures prevents the throttle plate from closing as the driver releases the gas pedal, causing loss of throttle control.
Years Affected:1992, 1993, 1994
Summary on June 25, 1994
Feed fuel hoses can harden and "set" over time, allowing a seepage of fuel at the connection between the hose and the engine fitting. the clamp used to hold the hose to the fitting is unable to compensate for the hardening of the feed fuel hose.
Years Affected:1991, 1992, 1993
