Bad head Cylinder #6

Has been smooth sailing since picking up my 2014 JGC Altitude. However, a few months ago I would get an intermittent flashing engine light at WOT on the highway at around 75 MPH. Didn't think much of it since the car ran fine around town and I don't highway drive much.

Asked service to take a look during oil change today and wouldn't you know the #6 cylinder was misfiring and they diagnosed it as a bad head. Just thought I'd post about it.

I'll update once I receive the car back. Rent a car for now.

Re: Bad head Cylinder #6

#6 is rare, usually #2, just had my head replaced and now just 0 or 1 when I check. Thought is was fixed in '13.

Note that an oil change and filter is included in the head replacement, have heard of dealers charging.
