Full Answer

A faulty spark plug, low levels of fuel, or a blown head gasket can cause the engine to fail. Replacing the spark plug and the head gasket, as well as filling the gas tank can help to resolve this. A defective inlet valve in the fuel tank filler tube or an error in construction can cause fuel to spill over when fueling. Replacing the fuel inlet valve can help resolve this problem. If this fails, consult the manufacturer for further help.

A worn-out starter motor, a faulty ignition switch, a bad neutral safety switch or locking up the engine can cause failure of the engine to crank. Replacing the starter motor and the ignition switch, or repairing the safety switch and the engine lock can resolve this problem. A worn-out seat flame can cause the driver’s seat frame to crack, and consulting a mechanic to replace the seat can help.

A fault in the electrical system can cause water leakage from the roof, sunroof, dome lights, rear hatch and side doors. Consulting the manufacturer for repair can help to rectify the problem. A defective design in the gas tank and poor installation of fuel tank and filler neck can cause the gas tank to catch fire. To solve this problem, consult the manufacturer for further advice.
