Hahaha! Thanks for the link. All I've done so far is change the oil and filter, left it a half-quart low, inspect the EGR valve (it was very clean), order new plugs and O2 sensors (have no idea when they may have been changed by previous owner or if ever changed) and plan to Seafoam the engine. Check engine light bulb was out so pulled the cluster and changed that one this weekend and cleared the code for that. Car was probably not run at full operating temp for the test it failed and tires pressure not checked so I'll make sure they are to max pressure. I think we are getting winter gasoline in California now but will have to check. Wondering what an acetone supplement would be. Is there a commercial product that is sold as an additive?
