It's ok, they're not *that* baad!

Your freq valve should be buzzing all the time, as I said, the ECU
controls it with feedback from the OXS.  Pic of where to test the duty
cycle at the url below.

possible failure modes (I'm sure there are more...) include ECU grounds
(by coil on firewall I think), wiring to FV, FV itself, etc.

The FV should have 12v constant at one side (same circuit as fuel pump)
and the other side is grounded intermittently (like 50% of the time + or
-, at about 15 Hz) by the ECU.

Hope this gets you started...
