The CEL/SES/MIL works in a mysterious ways.
Riddle me this:
A saturn 1.9 comes in with an evaporative code.
Why would a engine coolant temperature sensor solve the code?
We know that the sensor is an infamous problem with cracking and creating a mirad of problems. The Bad sensor can throw a wrench into the evap monitor. The computer thinks it is in the proper temperature to run the evap test, when in reality the temperature is in the wrong range. Therfore the test runs at the wrong time picking up a condition that is normal for the correct temperature. The monitor test fails on a good condition and sets the evap code.
Take the advise and get it done-you don't want to be in no man's land if it decides to quit on you.
