No CEL in the truck. I still need to try driving the car with it unplugged. I unplugged it and then started it up and it slowly built revs until I shut it down. Not sure why. I will try it again and drive it.

The truck works great! It almost dies on cold start but a tap of gas will cure that. Not much power on cold cylinders. I REALLY don't like those 2000 rpm on COLD winter starts. It will be getting a switch/rheostat this fall.

The car revs to 3500 rpm to warm up when it is -30 or colder!!!!! NOT GOOD!!!! I don't like to see those kinds of rpm on a cold engine with no oil flow.
