Well, it finally happened to me. 65k and valve/cam cover needs to be replaced

SYMPTOMS: Surging idle, random loss of power, whistle from the pcv valve on the valve/cam cover. If I plug it with my finger, runs fine. :)

This should be covered under powertrain warranty, but still a pain in the arse.

ANOTHER NOTE: When I plug it with my finger, I notice a random squeak coming from the water pump area. The WP was replaced by the dealer at 45k. Ugh, hope it's nothing. WP still under powertrain warranty?

When the cam cover gets replaced, if the squeak is still there, remove the dipstick to see if it quits.

You might have a failed manifold check valve that killed your pcv.

IS that manifold check valve covered under powertrain?

Parts replaced under warranty only have the remaining warranty that is on the this case, the cam cover will be covered under any remaining powertrain coverage.
12/12 warranty applies only when the owner has paid out of pocket for the repair.

There is no TSB regarding the manifold but the online repair process instructs the repairman to verify the check valve is in position as part of the repair.
