    From the 2009 thread:

    "Some of the causes for this code are:
    1) Engine vacuum leak
    2) EVAP system problem
    3) IAC circuit shorted to ground
    4) IAC valve stuck open, or damaged
    5) Throttle body or plate contaminated or very dirty."

    These engines carbon up so easy that the first thing I would check is carbon buildup in the IAC and intake.

      The stock IAC was waaaay caked up dirty. Slapped on a U pulled IAC, cleaned up original one, will know more soon if the IAC related codes are resolved or not.

        Don't think the IAC was ever designed to due off-road duty on our 'Tours.....just saying.

          Remember that amphibious car from the 60s? I'm happy she did not do what Shotwell was always talking of, driving it into a river.

              Checked the replacement rear bumper cover, It needs some cracks fixed, there's one crack on a lower corner and another goes all the way though the horizontal portion under the rear mesh. The replacement came without mesh and the rear bumper now on the car is missing half the original mesh (Thank you, dear.) So I look to acquire a replacement rear mesh, and face some homework on mending up plastic bumper cover cracks.

              Hey, the car started today!

              And on line research indicates the company that made White Shepherd oil stop leak is the same company which now instead markets Blue Devil oil stop leak.
