Had the 60000 mi. Maint performed about 58700 mi. At about 59000 mi. Check engine light came on and stayed on. (Timing belt, plugs, engine oil change, trans oil change, anti freeze & thermostat.) You probably know the intake manifold has to be removed to change the plugs.
Dealer checked and said two valves are sticking(emission control valves- don't recall which specifically) cost $949.(One valve is $545) to replace. Mechanic had to reassemble what was disassembled for finding the problem before I could drive the vehicle.
Left the dealership - no check engine light is on, drove about 25 miles.
It would appear at this point that I can wait and see if the problem re-occurs - seems like this occurred in the past and the dealer reset the codes.
What is your suggestion on this problem?
P.S. We purchased new in 2002.
