Yes, however, it seems that they think the problem is coming from uneven engine speed.
When I took it in this time they said they would take off the cylinder head to check the valves as they think one or more valves migh be ... sticky? Is that possible? Could that cause this? It seems that they found something that made them take this radical approach. My only concern is that, what if this will still not fix the problem?
