Took for a routine tire rotation. Car's check engine light was on but no real problems. Dealership said it was the EVP and I said I would fix it.

I Replaced main VSV with three tubes because one tube was totally split from switch body. PO441 codes are still being thrown though so I've got to find the other VSV.
