    P0299 code on kid's car 2014 Chevy Cruze about 75K miles

    Easy way to check, it is a on or off valve to prevent airflow. Energize, is it flowing on AND off, if so, bad valve slash solenoid.

    I am pretty sure your terminology is confusing to me, so I google bayonet and wedge and deduced that a wedge or and a bayonet are not the same, so goin for wedge type also.

    in the case of these tiny engines running full on suvs, the thing gets hot. And as a day in and day out tech, I cant stress enough how important the upkeep of the newer small cc engines with turbo is important

    Yeah, the good old days of detonation . However, with the new algorithms to correct fuel stagy, this is exactly the symptom you get. I know this is off point and not thread specific, but when I was driving my 302 overboard slash over bored, the high octane pretty much took care of that, but...
