After taking it to dealership one I took to twice couple thousand dollar later. I took the engine apart . I found 4 lifter that were shot and a cam shaft that look like it had been on grind. One bad value and a broke spring. Make you wonder who works at these dealship. Now what to fix it buy new engine. KEEP IN MIND I HAVE PUT OVER A COUPLE THOUSAND . NEW ENGINE 3500 to 4500. I read this engine are bad for bad cam breaking and thing like this. Sometime it better to go with your gut feeling. To save some money.
