When initially starting motor it revs high, and upon take off engine continues to rev high. After having the motor mounts replaced, the problem still persists! the dealership has now found a "knocking" sound in the engine and said it would need to be torn down. Since then they are now saying that they cannot duplicate the noises and nothing is wrong. Only a few days ago they notified me of the knocking noise, which I was unaware of.
