Hi, My name is Jay

What is the 8th digit of your VIN so I can get the engine you have and can check for this problem. Are you having an issue with running or pressure build up in tank?

I don't have it with me but I'm sorry - I asked the wrong question - can you tell me why my hydraulic lift on my trunk jerks and closes at 60% when opening?

Here is a possible problem you may have that needs checked first. Follow the tech bulletin to see if wiring is being cut into. You may need a scanner to get body codes to verify these repairs are needed.
