    06/30/2007 103827 Oil (20w50) and Filter change
    04/03/2008 103736 Installed missing smog pump adjusting bracket Bought a vacuum amp ($95.00) to get the EGR valve working correctly since I cannot find a smog guy who looks the other way. California gas prices now $3.85. While trying to install the EGR amplifier, found other emission control equipment that works in conjunction with amp to be missing. There are several different configurations for the EGR system for this year but there is no under hood sticker so it is hard to determine which one is correct. Recalibrated EGR valve and reconnected in its current configuration. It's now running much better. The engine was getting too much EGR with the old calibration orifice.
