The timing chain tensioner is designed to use oil pressure to keep tension on the timing chain. When it develops a leak, it can no longer provide tension, and the timing chain will begin to make a slapping or rattling sound at all times.
If left in this condition, the timing chain may fail, leading to costly internal engine repair.
To correct this issue the timing chain tensioner must be replaced with the revised part.
There are occasional reports of daytime running light problems.
A loss of power on the freeway may due to an internally leaking fuel pulsation dampener. This commonly occurs on higher mileage vehicles.
At 125,000-150,000 miles, the Brake Master Cylinder may need replacing. It is critical to adjust the brake pedal to Master Cylinder pushrod clearance or the brakes can drag and over heat.
Occasionally, the timing chain and sprockets need replacement due to premature wear and problems with the variable valve timing system (VVTi).
