Oil pan gasket - persistent, minor leak not severe enough to warrant repair. Catalytic converter performing outside specifications. Would have repaired before next emissions inspection.
Car would crank normally but wouldn't start. My mechanic diagnosed it as a faulty fuel pump. He replaced it with a part from the dealer in about 2 hours. Car seems to be fine now. We'll see. He was shocked the pump failed w/51000 miles. Oil leak from pan noticed during oil change. Replaced the gasket + new oil & filter. Also replaced air filter, rotated tires, & drained & filled the transmission with Mercon 5 + bottle of Lubegard Silver. Torque Converter shudder is gone.
Misfire on Coil #5 due to hairline crack. Replaced with Standard Motor part. Decided to check all coils and repaired them with high-temp silicone to prevent moisture seepage. Also replaced spark plugs, intake gaskets and PCV valve.
changed 2 aftermarket accel coils back to original equipment because computer does not read them causing engine to misfire.
radiator had pin-hole leaks from small stones being thrown from cars in front on hwy driving. Purchased BG's coolant sealer no problems since.
Engine mount, located at the rear side of the engine cracked. Drove 150 km before localized the source of unusual sound. Seems no subsequent damage occurred. Dealer ordered replacement and delivered it in 24 hours. Installed by myself at home.
Failure in one of the ignition coils, with CE light blinking (misfire in one cylinder). Ignition coil replaced.
Failure in another ignition coil, with CE light blinking (misfire in one cylinder). Ignition coil replaced.
Ignition coil died
The fuel pump started to make a noise coming from the back seat. It was determined that the fuel pump was the cause and should be replaced.
Replaced fuel pump.
Cylinder 6 ignition coil failed, causing rough running and blinking CEL due to misfiring. Also had all 6 spark plugs and spark plug boots replaced.
Could not keep it running. Replaced valve in air mix..2nd time for problem.
