It's never good to bring her home on a flatbed!

I took it out today for a quick highway ride. When I got off the highway near my house and stopped at a light I noticed the engine was ticking when at idle and the exhaust sounded different. I proceeded home driving gentle when the engine shut itself down and would not start. Coasted to a parking lot and called AAA. Now she sits in my driveway.

Thanks guys. I knew what I signed up for. I check the oil regularly and checked the oil level about 40 minutes after it shut down and the level was normal.

Do you work on your own vehicle? Not sure why you would tow it home and not to the dealership.

We have a winner.

It was 1/2 mile from my house.

The codes indicate it was a sensor issue. Doesn't like any major damage. But we will see.

Can't play with the big dogs if you pissing like a puppy.

Exactly. I upgraded to the premium level of AAA after so know I get 200 miles of towing instead of 100.

I do not work out my self other than to keep her pristine. She is home, not in her bed but home.

It's no big deal. I knew what I was getting into. But I have NEVER had any issues with all the other new cars I bought so I rolled the dice. I would do it again tomorrow. Loved the car even more after I did it. It was just a one in a million problem.

...Sensor issue...hmmmm....an easy check might be the MAF sensor...either it went bad or is a "weak" one and is acting up...which is not too uncommon with a lot of mods....

Based on mod level, I'm assuming that you have a simple/cheap code reader? What's the code read?

Any misfires or rough idle issues? Maybe a broken valve spring? (trying to account for engine ticking/exhaust note change)

Possible vacuum/exhaust leak issue? (again, potential source of ticking...unmetered air can prevent engine from re-starting as well)

I plugged my iTSX in and used my iPad to read the codes. It seemed to idle fine as in no roughness at all, just a noise and different sound to the exhaust. I'm going to use AAA to flat bed it to the shop and let them check it out.

The codes indicate that it's a CMP sensor which has something to do with the camshaft.

Dude, about to take the plunge with headers (sitting in my garage) but reading stuff like this scares me off.

Keep us updated.
