    04 GTO

    Question advice

    I have a 04 gto manual 6 spreed. My factory warranty is up at the end of the month and the car only has 12,000 miles. I guess I would like to know if anyone knows of commons things that go wrong with the goat that would be covered or if I should just say $%&# it.

    The only mod I have in mind right now is nitrous and I guess now I wouldn't have to worry about voiding the warranty.

    Thanks in advance

    The floor vents stop working alot due the control cluster. Make sure all directions of air flow are working properly. Pop the rubber cap of your strut tops in your engine bay. Take a look and see if the inside of the bushing is higher than the outside. If it is your strut bushings are shot. Look for any leakage around your radius rod bushings.
    Hear any clunks or noises from your rear end?

    You can check for leaking struts by just rubbing your fingers in the spring perch. If dry they are OK, if they are wet with oil then.....
    Another failure I have seen is the steering rack leaks excessively. A few drips is pretty normal, but if you have a lot you may want to have that checked out.
