    Maybe take it off and clean it? Carb cleaner is what ive always heard. If you do that make sure you dont lose the rubber gasket thats on there. and let it dry out before you put it back on. Just 2 10mm bolts if i remember right.

    i have cleaned it, but the o ring wasnt there to begin with.... sprayed that area while car was running, no leaks found.

    I believe you can put 12v and ground to the eacv to test if it pops or not. Im at work now, i can check the manual when i get to to see for sure.
