Okay, so most of you have seen my miserable experiences, with a "p1245" code. Turns out that was a faulty OBDII?? Idk I'm just as confused at this point. But the code reads correctly at a p1345 cyl 2 with fuel cut off.

Any suggestions and the best (cheapest) steps to take? I already switched coil 2/3 and left it running. I also have new plugs and a VCG.

Rough idle at low RPM

Still sounds like a Vacuum leak (oil cap has slight suction when removing it gently.

Burning oil, and kind of consuming more than usual gas. Any takers?
