|Ratings Key||Minimal Problems||Moderate Problems||Significant Problems|
Occasional problems on this vehicle are failures of the Crankshaft Position (CKP) and Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensors and screws falling out of the intake manifold Power Valve on the 2.5L engine. Failure of the CKP Sensor or the CMP Sensor may cause the engine to stall, and may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. When the intake manifold Power Valve screws fall out they enter the engine through the intake manifold and can damage the spark plugs causing the engine to misfire or may damage the engine block. In some cases, problems with the Engine Sensors and intake manifold Power Valve screws may be covered by a factory recall.
The cost to replace the CKP Sensor is $17.30 for parts and $26.00 for labor. The cost to replace the CMP Sensor is $58.64 for parts and $39 for labor. The cost to remove the intake manifold and replace the Power Valve screws is estimated at $50.00 for parts and $195.00 for labor. The cost the replace the engine short block is estimated at $2650.00 for parts and $1,040.00 for labor. All prices are estimates based on $65.00 per flat rate hour and do not include diagnostic time or any applicable sales tax.
