Are you saying I need more than the standard OBD scan tool to diagnose the problem? You also referred to a diagram, but I am not sure what diagram you are referring to.

I found the part for only about $40.00. Is it pretty easy to replace? If you think it is the likely culprit, maybe it is worth just replacing it.
