Q: How do you test the fuel system delivery?
Q: How do you test the ICV (idle control valve)?
Q: How do you test the VCG (valve cover gasket)?
Q: How do you test the TPS (throttle position sensor)?
The post-cat test would be similar to the pre-cat. The Bentley covers the fuel system delivery question. My Snap-On meter can provide the procedures for all the others (except the VCG). I can look these up and report back. The only possible problem is that the procedures may vary by model, engine and year. I'll look into it and let you know if it will be a long list.
