...and of course, the day after I installed the 68Ω resistor, ambient temps go from the low/mid 40's yesterday to mid-70's today. Driving around town just now, VCM engaged numerous times, especially after sitting at a light for a minute or two. ECT temps hung around the high 160's/low 170's.Highway driving brought them down into the low 160's, so no VCM.should be ok for a while I didn’t read enough to know the year and model. All vehicles have variations so I wouldn’t be concerned.
If nothing else, I've got a general idea of when the 68Ω resistor will need to be pulled next spring.
