2008 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


I have completly enjoyed my TC, looks great, fun to drive. Bought it new in july of '07. At 4700 miles I noticed the oil light came on. Checked the oil, found it wasn't even touching the stick, but it was time for my warranty oil change and took it in. Told them what was going on. I was told to drive it for half of the normal oil change period and bring it back. It ran out before that time. I took it in, they kept it for about 3 weeks. Said it was the valve stem seals and replaced them. Picked it up ater repair now the car sounds like a little hot rod, and vibrates, took it back, the machines the head, picked it up still sounds like a hot rod, no vibration, took it back, installed new motor.
