Thanks for the reply.
Drove it a couple of more times and it seems to have worked itself out.
I did change the oil, and I will probably change it again very soon. I used a combination of 5W30 and 10W40 for the "clean out" oil. It'* what I had on hand. When I change it out soon, I'll use 10W30.
Pretty sure there'* no vacuum leaks. There'* only so many places to have one, and I'm intimately familiar with this engine now. At least her top end.
There seems to be an exhaust leak now that I didn't have before. Sounds kind of throaty when you let off the throttle. Hopefully it either works itself out, or is no big deal. It'* not loud enough to be annoying.
Car has a couple of other issues, but both were present before the LIM gasket job. Weak starting sometimes needing a jump. Don't know if it'* a dying battery or a bad alternator. Also the "Service Engine Soon" light came back on again. It was on before the job. Having the battery undone must have reset it, because it stayed off for a little while, but came back on during a test drive this morning.
