Once you clear the codes, you have to drive the car for a day or two or three until you complete the drive cycle. Only then will the Evap Not Ready code disappear.

Old Spring on new Struts

Struts are toast but I don't have the cash for new springs also. Is it a sin to put old springs (circa 1998) on new struts? Or should I just wait to get new springs?

thanks in advance.

I'd try a bone yard. I goto the one on Brown Station Rd in Upper Marlboro. They usually have a few GS's with the bmc still in it. Good luck

Nah, just take some of the air out of the left side tires. That'll cancel out the pull to the right and the car will drive straight.
