other technical points - VCM, door locks

just thought i'd throw this info out there

it appears that the VCM doesn't kick in until the engine is at operating temperature, perhaps to get it up there faster.

also, there is a procedure in the manual (i'm sure u all already know this) to make it so that when ur doors auto lock, they also both auto unlock, or u can disable this feature altogether.

i will post the procedure this evening after work, though it is the manual.

the auto lock/unlock is customizable. as you know, when you put the car in drive it auto locks, and when you park only driver's door unlocks. you can change this so both doors unlock, or you can disable these features altogether.

Hi all,
With all the issues on this misfiring and the damage it can cause, has anyone ever had or heard of a valve break? Its a long story. Once I get to my "10" posts (since I am a new user) I will paste it on the main board for all to see. Such a nightmare!
