And something about GM vehicles, they foul the TB like a diesel engine. I've cleaned the TB on my truck shortly before I got rid of it, (at only 16.5k miles, no less), my mother's Blazer, my father's bravada, and his S-10. Only one that doesn't do it is the Eldorado. Clean, virgin TB's, intake, everything at 70k, and it gets 30mpg on the highway, no hypermiling at all. I swear this car is a fluke.

Now if only Cadillac could be convinced to downsize the Northstar for other purposes, like a .4L version for my bike.
