I just joined the club. Cylinder #3 dropped the seat on startup. Luckily the engine never started, just turned over a few times. Just got the head off yesterday and it looks like everyone else's. This happened right at 160k miles on a 2004 LX. I also found a crack in my exhaust manifold on #3 and #3 injector was dirty.

I did get a lean #3 warning one week before.
