problem #1

Apr 062004


  • Automatic transmission
  • 9,000 miles
Upon starting the vehicle engine turns over approximately 3 times before the vehicle starts. This failure has almost caused an accident while attempting to merge onto a highway. Dealership ran an diagnostic test in which no failure code was found, although the failure occurred 3 times.
