Not sure why the "summertime maintenance hike" is lasting extra long this year, but I'm sure they've conjured up some ridiculous excuse. We get less than 4% of our oil from...

it was MY 2013.5

Check and tighten all charge piping clamps. Hard to say where it might be, but the typical culprit is the IC hoses. It might've released pressure instead of blowing the pipe off fully. I would...

RIP mechatronics unit.


You'll need a new one, and depending on how long it's been doing this for, you might as well look at clutch packs. The cost is typically around $1300-1750 for independent...

usually a seal and bondo job. From there it's sand/prime/paint. Not much else to it. Just avoid side impacts, insurance will refuse payout if your ecodes are scrubbed.
