      Well done sir! I tip my hat to you. I have not seen crocus cloth in some 20 years or more. I wish I could help you more, but I don't own the overpriced jewel you seek.

      Anything sounds reasonable without DTCs to prove otherwise. When was the last time you changed plugs? Maybe they are due? Ask them for the list of DTCs they encountered and then do some research.
