Known Problems

The ignition coil housing may fail causing an engine misfire on one or more cylinders.

The instrument panel and switch backlighting may fail due to a faulty dimmer control module. A failed module will require replacement.

The turn signal switch may fail causing the hazard/turn signal flasher to continue to click even when the turn signal switch is off. Replacing the faulty turn signal switch will commonly correct this condition.

The spark plugs should be replaced every 30,000 miles and the spark plug boots should be checked for hot spots and cracks.

A weak battery or a burned out brake light bulb may cause the ABS light to illuminate.

The timing chain tensioner and guides are prone to wear and may develop an abnormal noise, requiring replacement.

Our technicians highly recommend that the engine coolant be replaced every 30,000 miles.

The 2.3L 4 cylinder engine can be prone to head gasket failure. This can result in coolant loss and engine overheating.

The engine vacuum hose to the MAP sensor may crack resulting in a vacuum leak causing the engine to run rough and/or stall.

The torque converter clutch can stick "on" after extended freeway driving causing the engine to stall when coming to a stop. Our technicians tell us when this occurs, the engine usually will restart and stall when put into gear. After allowing about twenty minutes for the engine and transmission to cool down, the engine will start and the transmission will operate normally. Replacing the torque converter clutch solenoid, transmission filter, and fluid will generally correct this issue.
