Does anyone know how many miles you would have to drive a 1999 Sable DOHC through for it's drive cycle? I had a P0401 DTC and I cleared it using an Actron scan tool and took the car to to get an emission test. It passed everything except for the Readiness test and the technician told me I had to drive it through it's drive cycle, but he was unsure of how many miles that was.
Can't lay my hands on the 1999 drive cycle for EGR, but here's the 2000 drive cycle:
Start Vehicle WITHOUT returning to Key Off. Idle vehicle for 15 seconds. Drive at 64 Km/h (40 MPH) until ECT is at least 76.7 C (170o F).From a stop, accelerate to 72 Km/h (45 MPH) at ½ to ¾ throttle. Repeat 3 times.
