It has a rough idle when first started. Once its warmed up, it seems ok. It is using more oil than usual. The miles per gallon is down a bit. Lately it has been a bit gutless on hills.
replaced gasket
diagnosed when check engine light came on. Should be covered under warranty 10/120 for original owner I'm told. Also told to have dealership do oil consumption test for drain back holes.
