Cool...I think replacing the camshaft (not just lifters as many service departments seem to do) is the key. I am not exactly sure what goes wrong, I'd like to see the parts on ours once they take things out. No one seems to complain that the problem comes back then..

[BTW, Finland is pretty cool, that was one of our last stops last year when we did ED to pick up this car! We really liked the food at Zator, in Helsinki.]
