@dave, thats good too know that this is not necessarily bad news for the engine. I guess around 130k is when this thing starts to show up for both of us.

@andy, yeah I’m surprised they didn’t take pressure measurement too. I googled this issue before, and only found a handful post. And all of them don’t have resolution.

So far it only happened when its idle. I only seen it flicker three times before I posted this. twice before I brought it to Edge and once after. However driving home tonight I actually seen it flicker few times 🙁
The good thing they are all always when its idle. Always when I put the gear to neutral. and it goes away if I rev the engine a little bit.
I’ll probably call Edge tomorrow.
