    Did the dealer's wrench actually take it out for a ride ... not just a cruise down the street, but actually put a load on the engine? It's the load that would bring on pinging that would not be evident in a static test in the shop or a cruise around the block.

    You'll likely get more replies if you ask the moderators to move this thread to the appropriate tech section.
