It is rough from the beginning, and since I just replaced the OXS, I'd say it's a temp sensor.  I went into Advance Auto today and ordered the only one they can get.  I'm willing to bet that it is the one on the head as opposed to the one on the radiator.  Where can I get the one for the radiator?
Also, back when we ran the codes, Bill Gerwig and I couldn't get the temp sensors to give any readout, so maybe they are just being silly... which is weird, cause I still have a readout on the gauge.
