Lucky

My mechanic used his smoke machine and in fact found crack on canister. But he has a hook up and found a OEM part for $143 and is installing free of change. Guess I dodged a bullet on this one!!

Active Tests

Appears that Techstream can "test" whether the sensors in the picture below are functioning correctly. Seems like this could be useful. For example, I am currently running a p0441 and would be nice...
