This did not help. This service bulletin was only for 4 cylinder vehicles. Mine vehicle is 6 cylinder, which I stated. I believe I deserve a refund.

Yes I understand its the same exact issue .The vent gets clogged.Usually its from a nest from a spider.This is what is happening with your car its a nest in that vent or the hose causing this issue..Need to clear the clog in that line and drain.
