I wouldn't jump on the whole "lemon" thinking. This could have happened to any car you would have bought given the same circumstances: You doing a motor job with little to no experience in the specific area needing fixed.
Learn from this and grow in your knowledge of cars.
You picked a very very good car and one that with regular maintenance will last you a very vey long time.
Hats off to you for taking on this job!
I give you a
for hanging in there and not giving in and bringing it in to a shop and paying them a ton of money
and give you
for competing the job well done!
