Cold soak vehicle for 8 hours

Make sure codes are cleared

Fuel filled between 15 and 85 %

-Start & idle vehicle for 4 min.

-Idle vehicle in drive for 40 sec.

-accelerate to 45 mph using 1/4 to 1/2 throttle

-accelerate for at least 10 seconds, shifting through to 5th gear

-drive with a steady throttle at 45 mph for 30 sec.

-stop the vehicle and idle in either drive or neutral for 40 sec.

-drive at speeds between 25 and 45 mph for 15 min. Use 1/4 to 1/2 throttle accelerations. Include the following conditions:

-at least 5 stops within 10 sec of idle time

-at least 3 steady speed sections of

1 1/2 min durations

-drive the vehicle between 45 and 60 mph for 8 min (use high gear)

-maintain a steady speed between 45 and 60 mph for 5 min

-drive the vehicle between 45 and 60 mph for 8 min (use high gear)

-stop vehicle and idle for 40 sec.

This is one of the more involved drive cycles, and from experience, takes a long time, so be patient and be prepared, Good luck!
