the plugs are fouled from oil consumption and the repair was done 2x and still now change?
did they remove the oil pan and install the shield over the afm relief valve in the oil pan?

Vehicle is being repaired as we speak (Apr 18 all day and still at the dealer on April 19). Yes, they are installing the shield this time. Not sure why this was not done in 2013 or 2015. Thanks for the advice and input

check your oil level at each refueling untill the first oil change. use the same routine at each check...engine off for 10 minutes to let the oil drain down.
