#3 could easily be a dirty injector that leaks out the fuel rail pressure when the car is off.

The primary difference in high mileage oils is they have seal swelling agents to help prevent minor oil seepage.

sorry i havnt chimmed in a while. my fluid levels are all good so i dont think that is it.

As for the rattling, I ordered the 3 new mounts for the motor and transmission. I noticed that the torque strut mount was completely shot while I was doing my oil. Ive been your supposed to change all three at once so I bought em all. Ill let you know when I install that.

thanks for the input!
