    I like how OP thought he initially resolved the problem by having his woman suffer with it. Your new Kia tech probably saved the entire relationship, he is owed a bottle of booze in my opinion.

    LOL She wanted the car, and stepped in and took it over, when I was trying to get rid of it.

    I hope you're right. Unfortunately it's just as likely the other, less-competent techs will be jealous and will try to sabotage.

    "Mediocrity hates excellence" was one of my old man's favorite sayings. Which he made up himself, BTW.

    Unfortunately, the car gave another CEL/MIL and it went back to the dealer today. Something caused the vacuum hose going to the engine, on the replacement evap canister purge valve, to be blown off. The tech that did the repair work changed the type of clamp from a squeeze style to a regular worm drive type, or jubilee clip for those outside the US.

    The original was like this one.

    The new one looks like this.

    Little things like that can make a big difference.
