    06 Eclipse GT throwing P1020 code. Have replaced the oil pressure switch. Can the Oil Control Valve be tested before ultimately replacing it? Throwing a $10.00 part at a problem is acceptable but $400 part bothers me. Can it be adjusted, cleaned or anyway to salvage this part. Have found no...

    Hey guys! New user here, about to hit 150k on my '07 GS. I wanted to check in to see if I need to preemptively do any maintenance to prepare for the long haul. I picked her up a year ago at 134k, not sure of what was fixed up before then. Since then, I've had: the timing belt replaced (after...
