Known Problems

Due to age and possible damage during removal, it is recommended to replace  the spark plug boots when replacing the spark plugs,

Corrosion can form at the grounding points near the battery. There may be electrical faults and the engine may crank but not start.

Check the battery cable ends frequently for corrosion. Corrosion can easily migrate under the cable insulation and cause numerous electrical faults and drivability issues.

When replacing the battery, make sure the battery height is correct; a battery that is too tall can cause a short circuit when the hood is closed.
If you experience poor running and low fuel economy after the starter has been repaired, it could indicate that an incorrect starter relay was used. A diode-suppressed starter relay may be needed.

Some of the AC hoses are exposed and may be damaged by speed bumps and parking lot blocks.

Vibration caused by the air compressor for the air suspension can be solved by installing an insulator kit at the air compressor mounting points.
