I was surprised that there was almost no build up on it. A few sprays of carb cleaner and a toothbrush got it shining in just a few minutes.

So here's what I did, with pictures.
Thanks a million, fixed a P1404 by searching for it here. took me no time to find a FAQ. removed the intake on the 2000 sl2 to make it easier, probably not necessary though.

thank you autozone for pulling the code and saturnfans for posting a how-to; saved our family $150+. Much luv.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
