Thanks for holding.

GM has provided a Drive Cycle procedure that should get the readiness monitors set more quickly and efficiently. Try to stay as close to the times and speeds as directed in the drive cycle. Keep in mind, the EVAP System is the hardest monitor to set and may require the drive cycle be done a couple of times. I've wrapped up the drive cycle into a PDF file for easier viewing/printing.
