You don't really flush them, you use either a piece of weed wacker line or a long plastic zip tie to kind of snake the drains. You can use a little water to help.

Does the car have Sat Radio? If so, it may be the SAT receiver that sits under the AMP in the trunk. When I had no sound at all, it was due to that being wet. I thoroughly dried it in a warm oven...

When you say "per tank", you are talking a full 15-16 gals, right? That would put your MPG at sub 10 which is really low. If you fill up when it is 1/4 full or more, say 11-12 gals, now you are in...

+1

My TPM goes off if the tire loses more than about 2 psi. As Yorgi said, keeps from gutting the tire and quite possibly the rim.

Yorgi, my car threw some of these codes when my battery was suspect prior to the grounding recall. After a long run or a good charge they would go away.
