2005 996 Rough Idle

Engine

Vehicle Information: Year: 2004; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 1250;

My car started idling a little bit roughly at 1100 miles. Other things I noticed were: 1)increasing operating temp from 185 to about 200-205 2) Bog going into 3rd gear from high RPM when driving hard. The dealer checked it on the computer and said that on one bank the engine was compensating for something, maybe unmetered air, i.e . an intake leak. They suggested that I drive it another few hundred miles and then bring it in, since it is still in the break-in period. I said I was planning to drive to Seattle and back early next week. They said that I should do that and bring it in with the additional miles. Any thoughts on whether that's really advisable? What do I do if I get a CEL halfway between Portland and Seattle? Should I putter around town instead for 300 miles?Total Mileage: 1250Car Use: Street use only
