 Description of the problem. My pick-up averaged 24 per gallon between local and expressway driving. Expressway driving only (for example, to niagara falls in 2015) averaged 27 miles per gallon. Following replacement of spark plugs and oil change and 2 factory recalls my pick-up lost power and could barely do 20 miles per gallon. The engine became very loud. The longer i drove it, the less mileage i got -- the engine also began howling/whistling as i tried to increase speed. In order to maintain speed, i had to constantly press my foot to excelerate, even going down inclines. I had to continuously bring my pick-up back to the dealership in st. Charles, illinois because various systems began to fail -- safety breaks, fuel related black box, dashboard panel signals , etc. I expressed concern about the stress on my transmission and engine. Eventually, by process of elimimation, service department revisited the 2 recalls -- one of which was the cruise control recall. When i brought it in again, they found 6 leaks located on the top of the engine. Anything above 50-55 mph is difficult. I feel that the transmission does not change gears in a timely fashion, and sometimes not at all. The rpm is very high and the engine remains in exceration mode either too long or, at higher speeds, never kicks in
