Just replace it $60is not worth the mental hassle and the possibility blown head gasket or worse because these cars can overheat quickly.

That could be that it's stuck open or the heating element has gone bad. Either way it isn't expensive and saves the guesswork.

I forgot to update the thread with the result. I changed the check valve and the vacuum from the intake side. The errors are gone now and have been that way a few weeks.

I would beg to differ on that one. www.partsgeek.com has super fast shipping, parts inventory and prices. That's one of the first places to check for parts that are not body panels or trim.

See examples of sleeper. Then note how the M3 is not a sleeper. It's a nice M3/LS3 Vette kinda thingie, but not a sleeper. It has to dress the part of a slow unappealing car.
