Here is a great link to the block problems. It also has a listing of some dealers that are more experienced at the job.

I believe my 7 series has the know problem with the rough idle and vibration, i read on a website about it how the us gas deteriorates the cylinder walls and causes leak down. But the dealer insists that that isnt the problem and not one block in a 7 series has been replaced on the entire west coast, not only wont they fix it but they are saying theyre not even going to do a leak down test. Now there is a diagnostic computer that tells the mechanic if a manual leak down needs to be done or not but is this reliable
