2009 SL Hatch with CVT. MR18DE. Cylinder 3 failure started at 65,000 miles.

Started as light tapping in the cold in winter of 2010. Would be ok when warm. By mid 2011 it was tapping no matter the temp and even once warm. Started experiencing massive oil burning. Oil light came on twice in a month before I realized something was very wrong. By winter of 2011 had a very obvious lump at idle. Engine would die unless I came to very light stop. Replaced engine @ 84,000 miles new years weekend 2012 with MR20DE. After 600 miles new engine running great, no check engine light.
