No, but it was slightly at an angle towards the banking of the curb in front of my house. It was weird because I noticed that it moves really fast towards empty all of a sudden. I wish it was the other way it would move. I'm thinking a bad fuel level sensor maybe? It did throw a code of fuel level too low when it had lots of gas in it.

RIGHT when the temp gets to 12 o'clock, water temp is right around 160F

obviously, I dont know what the high side is...

Right - it's a fairly generic code. I got this code both when my pre-cat O2's went bad, and when I had a bad cyl 2 misfire.

This is why people should be using the peake reader and not a generic scanner.

So you're saying the middle line spread is between 160-230?
