Simple repair. Dirty throttle body. Remove hat - 2 bolts - unplug - pull toward you. 4 bolts holding throttle body. unplug use brake cleaner and soft rag - do not scratch. pcv valve passenger side behind throttle body. Turn counter-clockwise up the ramp. Keep turning until it pops out. spray brake cleaner into bottom of pcv valve until it clicks free while shaking. Emissions label underneath top of hood - look up under hood - diagram shows 2 breathers behind throttle body. hmmm. Guess I will have to take it apart again.
