Replace coolant temperature sensor and cooling fam. I began to have an issue with on of my two cooling fans running at top speed (driver's side) about the middle of June. My mechanic of the past 3 years worked on the repair towards the end of June (I included the exact date on your site). That mechanic moved from Orlando, FL to Naples, FL and the repair that was done did not solve the problem. From several careful observations, I believe the issue is the other fan (passenger side) is dead. I say this because no matter when I lift my hood, that fan is not turning. I'm now searching for a new talented and trustworthy mechanic (a very difficult task) to complete that repair.

Noise from left rear wheel. Had to replace the Hub assembly and arm assembly. NOTE: On 6/3/2007 with 30,873 miles, warranty covered the replacement of the same hub assembly. Requested for front head light to be examined as it still turns off every now and then during night time. Again they could not replicate problem. Unable to diagnose or duplicate problem of temperature gauge going all the way to H. Charged for "diagnostic service". Requested for front head light to be examined as it still turns off every now and then during night time. Again they could not replicate problem. Left rear tire area seems to be making a dull, thumping noise in time with tire rotation. Tech could hear but did not know what was causing it. Thought cv joint or hub bearing but wanted to fix one or the otherto see without being sure..
