How r u doing with your car? did u find any answers?
Switch around the ignition coils a few times, move the front 3 to the 6,5,4 cylinders. and then check to see if your code changes to a p1188, (meaning bank 1) instead of a bank 2 code.

I would pull your plugs anyways, and check them.

do you have your own scanner?

as for my car, I ordered in a new CCV anyways, just incase, it is a common problem with my sypmtoms, and a cheap part. i did replace my oil dipstick to ccv hose and a second one with high temp heating hose,that i attached to the old fittings. ( they both had holes)

after that, fuel pressure test and smoke, i havent done because my cars not insured...
