Default Coolent leak recall 00 - 02'*

Hi All,

I had to take my car back to the dealership today to get the window deflector repaired again, and while I was there they told me there was a recall on my car for a coolent leak. Its recall number #03034 and it involves changing the throttle body nuts and adding sealant. I never heard about this prior to taking it in and I never received a notice in the mail about it either. Anyway I don't think that my car was leaking, but better safe than sorry.

Just a heads up for you 00 - 02 owners.

Thanks for the heads up, I'll be cheking into that coolant leak recall for my rig. I think I may need deflectors replaced both front doors also. I get minor intrusion of water in heavy rain near aft ends of front doors. I can see water droplets collecting on carpet retrainers & on top of weather seals.

Yah, thanks for the tip...and I am not having deflector problems, but my weatherstripping keeps folding in so that it is inside the windows...very annoying.

That could be from slamming the door...same with cracking, which will cause the water to leak through. I experienced this on the 95...NOT impressed...

I'll have to look into that recall thing...

I think maybe we're miscommunicating because I can't imagine this having anything to do with slamming the door :P ...it'* not the weatherstripping on the door frame, it'* the stuff around the outside of the rear passenger side window itself (when we roll down that window and then roll it back up it folds inside along the front side and a little along the top). We haven't had water problems yet, but I'm sure it will start to crack eventually. We had it "fixed" once already, but it happened again after just a few weeks. We tried pulling it out again while someone rolled up the window slowly, making sure it stays where it should, but if no one is there to hold it, it just happens again. I'm beginning to wonder if the part of the door it'* attached to is bent a little, angling it in there.

Just checked with our dealer here, and he says this recall (03034) has only been out about a week, and they havent gotten parts in yet for it. I told him to get 2 kits and i'd get both cars in....
