Update: Add me to the list of major engine failure after repair. Car was running good since Friday pickup. Today, check engine light, metallic clanging sound from engine tied to engine RPM. Not linear but generally louder at higher RPM. I was on the interstate. Slowed down. Sounded like engine was about to come apart. Coasted off highway and checked oil level. Plenty of oil. Oil light on at idle. Goes away after 900 RPM. Shut down for good. Called scion roadside assistance.
I wouldn't let any untrained mechanic replace cam gears!
