There are reports in the archives of the tank sensors failing, but there
are a lot more about the MTFS failing.   Try disconnecting the MFTS and
checking the condition of the wiring.  It's frequently wet inside the boot.
 How's the boost?  Do you get your normal boost performance or has it been
slipping some lately?
