Why they had to take it out I don't know but I have read another thread here with about a member who had a valve spring problem and they didn't have to take the engine out. Obviously I'm not an expert though.
So do they suspect the valves? if they went through the task of pulling the engine I would be worried they suspect the problem is deeper in the engine.
