Hello

We don t have that vehicle in our manuals . Sorry.

However, it sounds to me like you either have a belt that is slipping due to being old and stretched and not charging your alternator . Or the tension on the belt is loose and the same as I said, or your alternator is not putting out correctly and is getting ready to die or a bad battery.

Stop by Auto Zone (AZ) or O Reilly s (OR) and for FREE they can bring their tester out and check your battery and alternator if they have that vehicle in their system.

It does seem like one of those issue though.
