Dealer told me of a recent Service Bulletin. Some Engine valves were not torqued correctly. Could cause engine problems at high speeds. I am having mine checked tuesday. This could be a serious issue. Check with your dealer.

you might want to find a new dealer, since you cant torque your valves. also, it should take your dealer the better part of the day to check the problem which is a loose cam gear bolt(s). the front part of the engine must come off-timing cover, oil pan etc.

misunderstood what he said, however, do you know whether this needs to be checked on all engines or just a certian production date. I guess its better to be safe than sorry, but I hate for my engine to be torn apart on a maybe.

This is to see if you have a problem, so your Dealer needs to check just to be safe. We have done 3 already and they were all fine. The Service issue is a 5.5 hr. job,per DC, though it may take longer. Best of luck.

The service rep told me he was Highly certified. I did pick up my truck this afternoon. It did take about 6 hours. I talked to the mechanic who did the work and he said he losened the cam bolt then retorqued according to spec. Everything seems OK.
This is what was written on the service order:
Perform service action, inspected cam bolts and retorqued.

I found a little drip comming from the Power Steering Box, but this could be excess from the Line. I'm going o keep an eye on it. I wish the mechanics could be a little more neat with there work so there was not so much fluid all over the place.
