    thats real high, for a truck thats 11 years old, if they want that much , it better be crew cab, leather, sliding rear window, sunroof, climate control, power everything

    The computer learns one set of habits, then gets pissed if you start driving it hard. If you "blow the carbon out" every now and then it's actually better than babying it all the time.

    A couple guys have forced the computer to relearn driving habits by flooring it every time they merge onto the interstate and have said it idles better, with better mpg and throttle response. I'll try and find the link for you
