The rear brake lights overheat resulting in the plastic lamp bulb connectors melting and finally the lamp itself breaks a filament. The service lamp filament which is the in the same bulb continues to operate. I tried fitting LED bulbs to try and reduce the current drain, but both burnt out as soon as the brakes were applied.

Noticed white colored goo on oil dipstick during oil addition. Dealer indicated a failed head gasket. Solution is to replace the head gasket. Will also replace the valve cover which the dealer indicates is now a better design than the original cover. Dealer estimate is approx. $1200.
