I asked, they'll check. Like you said, it should be covered. If I had a clutch I would burn it out, but alas it's an auto

It was indeed the valve gasket. Covered under warranty. Thanks everyone for the help.

Sigh I just changed my plugs at 65K on my 2010. Had a little bit of oil on #2 and a bit more on #3.

So sounds like I need to learn how to do a valve cover gasket?
