    Hey All!

    So in going through horror stories in an unhealthy cycle of research while my car is being looked at, it seems replacements usually stem from:

    • Metal in the oil filter
    • Rough idle/loss of power
    • Knocks that increase with acceleration

    Rather than the more commonly known engine tick on its own. I've experienced what I think might be some loss of power, and I have the the tick, but it doesn't increase with speed/acceleration, and the loss of power isn't accompanied by any rough idle, I stay at about 650rpm throughout if I'm at a stop.

    Anyways, I guess my question to the community is: have any of y'all had an engine replaced without any of the three symptoms bulleted above? I figure making a thread like this could help either give peace of mind to those that don't need a new engine, and some ammo to fight for repairs for those that do.
