On an eight year old car? Surely you jest.

I'm curious how you determined it was a HG, I don't doubt you, It's just that sometimes there are other problems whose symptoms can be confused with a HG, my N* is case in point.

Seriously, to be on the safe side, do the PSI test described at:

It's foolproof, and it is cheap, and it can save you a lot of money if it proves you wrong.

All other tests are semi-inconclusive (hydrocarbons, bubbles, steam, hogwash, blah).
