    Any rich/lean/spark misfire can light the CEL under load if it's bad enough, and of course, result in fuel being dumped into the exhaust. I assume your mileage is still poor.

    Chris - I got the video, but I don't notice a miss, only that the check engine light comes on.

    What work have you done since last time?

    Are there any codes associated with the CEL?

    That's where I've been finding corrosion. Two connectors were hiding it in that location. Others were clean. Typically it's on wires that are constant hot, even when key off, I believe. Same with ABS...

    I don't recall if you kept the same engine and injectors, or not.

    If not, then you may be back to wiring.

    I've heard that can mean a heavy misfire under load, such as when excess fuel is being dumped into the cylinders. Remember we talked about the injectors.

    Are you looking at the factory oil pressure gauge or something aftermarket? The factory gauge is just an idiot light - it doesn't read actual pressure, just if you have some, or not.
