The old one set a false code for the Purge Valve control circuit. The new one started setting multiple coil circuit codes and missing like crazy on the first drive. There are signs of moisture on the circuit board and I don’t know what that blue corrosion-looking substance is on the upper left near that capacitor. Quality control seems to be slipping.

This was just driving it in, only ran for about 10 seconds in the shop, I was turning our vent fan on, opening the garage doors and closing the doors to the rest of the building. Then we all left until it was clear.
