It was the ignition coil. I asked them to replace all four as a preventative thing.

Valve cover was also leaking, so they replaced it.

I've been worried about a valve train rattle for a little...

Tangerine (or Blutorange as it was called in Germany, "blood orange") is a much more orange color than I am seeing in the photos. Then again, color reproduction can be a chancy sort of thing, so it...
