I figured I should reserect this thread instead of starting a new one. Got a check engine light yesterday. Turned out to be a P2440 fault. I had a spare valve sitting on the bench that I bought over a year ago, so I took the 5 minutes and changed it. No code since. I'll update if anything changes. Simple fix, and only $38 for the part. First non-warranty "repair" in 108K miles, not bad.

Isn't it amazing it knows this little, unnecessary, plastic valve isn't working right but has no idea the main fuel pump isn't running from a blown fuse and the stupid engine has no fuel pressure? Pollution control gadgets are much more important than checking to see if it has fuel under pressure to run it.
