    Sure looks like it to me.

    Idiots, simply by being idiots, seem capable of achieving randomly bad things that are beyond the imaginings of sensible people.

    Get a hold of Eric Rymer "rymer21280", I think he is on this board also" He does a great job of rebuilding these ECU's and he tests them out. If you don't know about electronics do not attempt this yourself. You may damage the board beyond repair by replacing a cap but bridging a circuit that didn't need to be.

    The leakage is acid from the caps and it can/will eat through the circuits on the board. It needs to be cleaned off, broken circuits repaired and the board resealed. Not as simple as baking soda and a toothbrush "Does work for some when the leak is fresh". It's worth it in the end to have a knowledgeable person do it.
