I just had a camchain tensioner replaced, a 15000 mile service, and a synchronization.

For some reason my mpg dropped like seven mpg and I'm getting a knocking noise that I feel in the pegs when I roll off in first gear.

Anyone ever have these or similar problems or can recommend a fix.

I want some advice before I go to the dealer and raise hell.

Cam chain tensioner replaced at 15,000 miles? That's not right. If there is a knocking sound after it has been serviced, they didn't do something right. Take it back.
