This seems to be plausible, but how was the MFTS out of adjustment? We
checked (removed boot and re-attached the contacts) the connector for the
IAT sensor, ISV and TPS. I still think the 'gremlin' is in there somewhere.
The car starts fine when cold, iffy when warm. I have tried turning the key
off then back on, this sometimes works. Yesterday I turned the key and got
the limp mode (CEL on), tried several off/on cycles but got the light every
time. I drove (limped) off and tried the off/on while stopped at a traffic
light. Third try, it fired up with no CEL, drove fine the rest of the way
home. I don't know how else to explain it. It seems that as it goes
through the 'start cycle' it decides whether or not to give me a hard time.
