Note: secondary spark plugs for both right and left cylinders were fouled. The left secondary was heavily-fouled with carbon and debris. Spark plugs were perhaps not properly torqued last service as some were too easily loosened and showed signs of oil and/or gas seepage on threads. Primary plugs were clean, but worn.


Transmission output shaft seal leaking


Will replace when I can afford it.

Other work to be performed by dealer: bleed brake hydraulic system, synchronize throttle bodies, check suspension and computer codes.
