Dcb, you haven't read the thread. I cleared the MIL 800 miles and 4 months before the smog tests. I explained my car's history with the multiple misfire TCs. The ECU should have learned all it needed to during those 800 miles. The only major change to my xB between the two smog tests was that I lit the cat for 100 miles.

I happen to have checked my xB's absolute and relative TPS recently to compare them with my wife's car. Idle TPS remains rock-steady at 11.8. Relative TPS is always 8 lower than absolute TPS.
