Recalls usually are for safety issues. Do you have any lights on the dash, like a Check engine light? Could be any number of things. But if a check engine light is on, you can find the issue by scanning the computer, like the smog guy mentioned.


As Tom said have the computer scanned. Some auto parts stores like Advance or Auto zone will do it for free. Post the code(s) here and we can help. HTH. -Jim
