      It is likely original. Check the top of the negative post for a date stamping. Not sure when they started doing it though and don't think I've seen it on all of them.

      There was a service campaign for the plugs and 87 isn't the cause of oil consumption developing.

      Aside from the occasional rodent nest I find under the covers, I've never seen a problem caused by any of the engine covers.

      They were working on the car assuming it would be an issue covered under warranty. It was not. Good luck getting someone to sign for an hour diagnostic charge on every warranty repair order.

      Don't put much trust in the CPO process. At the end of the day, it's a paper checklist that's run down by the dealer service department. Very easy for them to pencil whip and ignore things if able to...

      If the owner's manual says the car requires premium, run premium.

      If the owner's manual recommends premium, you can try regular.

      That's the bottom line and it applies to...

      Updated software is part of the CPO process. Of course, there is a chance an update comes out between when it is updated during the CPO process and when the vehicle is actually sold.

      So tech, if I’m not mistaken this thread. The timing/serpentine belt failure issue is only related to 2012 T5s. I have 2013 s60 T5 with 70k miles and wondering if I need to do any of these changes ? ...

      No, it is not any of those. The supercharger is different than the turbocharger. But it feeds the turbocharger so I'm not sure if that would change things.

      For sure they can, but in the case of warranty work, they then have to prove that the aftermarket modification caused the issue in the first place. As an example, on the VW/Audi 2.0T engine the cam...

      We don't disconnect the big door speaker. So if that's what you're replacing, don't worry about it. But if you're adding wiring or something additional, then wait.

      Not sure what exactly you're planning, but wait until after. No tech wants to deal with aftermarket stuff if it makes more work for them that they aren't paid to deal with.

      Anything is repairable if you want to go that deep. You need to find out where the compression is going. There won't be a cheap solution though.
