Default EVAP Monitor reset angst...

Hi everyone,

Anyone have trouble resetting their EVAP monitor back to "readiness" mode....for emissions testing?

Been doing repeated drive cycles as per Ford recomendations, but my EVAP monitor remains "not ready".

My truck (2.3L) has never shown a MIL/CEL. No fault codes have ever been stored or pending. I've always passed Colorado emisiions test in the past. My truck has never been "worked on" by anyone but me (plugs, belts, pads, etc).

I have no actual emissions issues, but Illinois Air Team has rejected me twice due to my EVAP monitor not being in ready mode.

I get one more "free" test, if rejected again I'll be forced (by law) to spend big bucks at an authorised emissions repair joint.

Color me baffled. And pissed.

2.3 liter powerhouse, 0 to 60 in under 5 minutes!
