    Also, I have had the oil pan replaced twice in the history of the vehicle so that very may well be an underlying cause for an issue as well, after you mentioned it.

    They provided a statement as to where the truck stands: "We checked over the truck, there are codes in the PCM for cylinder 6 misfire. We swapped coils to see if the misfire moved the misfire was still present. Performed a compression test and found that cylinder 6 has low compression. We could...

    I am going to get a written statement of their diagnosis and quote of the work they determined it needs and take it from there. As it stands, the last "chapter" of this ordeal was over the phone so i am in a ****** up position momentarily.

    130k+ miles. 2017. ANY ADVICE IS APPRECIATED

    It really was a red flag, was supposed to meet with the tech and he never showed. Was not going to cause a scene, needed to gather what they would provide and get 1 step ahead of them. Had expired mouse droppings and small nest clearly from before a week prior to finding ( not saying that is...

    Also wondering about the continued issues after people have replaced the long block. Seems to be a common outcome of this whole situation after reading the various threads on here. Not like I really have another option but just noticed there have been multiple situations like that.

    130k+ miles. 2017. ANY ADVICE IS APPRECIATED

    I appreciate all the responses. Trying to get the history down (dates of codes thrown, notes from oil changes,etc.) and decipher the issue as you guys have mentioned some thoughts I had. I need to request the latest diagnostic description on paper, because as of right now it was verbal...

    Also with it being only 1 week out from the new phasers, after breaking down and opening the engine bay the coolant was low which was abnormal as little as I know looking at the engine.

    The phasers cost $5k. they drove <500 miles after being replaced before the truck died on highway while accelerating. they told me it has nothing to do with the new phasers. but to get the truck back on the road it needs a long block at my cost.

    130k+ miles. 2017. ANY ADVICE IS APPRECIATED

    I am not car tech oriented as well as I wish so pardon any confusion. This threw codes related to misfires back in january, and has had new starters multiple times that they blamed it on. Complaint was rattle noise on cold start; cause and correction: "replaced 4 vtc phasers, also noticed very...
