HELP dealership is trying to fawk me!
I read on here on a ton of threads that all "internal lubricated parts" were covered. now when i was getting my lift bolts checked/replaced they called me and told me the extended warranty would not cover it because its a bolt. so 860$ out of my pocket... Is this true or am I just totally screwed???

it's kind of risky to drill it out by yourself...can't really give you a good answer...

After taking half my fuckign engine apart we got the seared part of the bolt outta the rocker shaft. was a nightmare. but saved me the 3k my dealership told me it would cost.

to hell with dealerships, they might sell a good car, but they have you by the balls when you need it fixed.

VVTL-i that's for GTS..VVT-i for GT..now GT don't have the L in their vvt..so they don't have L=Lift...in GTS Lift kick in at 6k rpm...that mean more power, that's y GTS have 180hp and GT have 140..stock..so if it's broke then don't get that power after 6krpm..which i think one of mine is broken.. cry
