Take your MO to just about any major auto parts retailer and they should be able to read the code for free. Post it here and we can assist with the diagnosis.

Thanks njjoe,
Plan on doing that in the morning. I have drivin my MO about 30 miles this evening the only thing I have noticed is a slightly higher Idle. Other than that I am still mystified as to what I might have done. Will post the codes soon as possible tomorrow. Leaving for Tn vacation Thursday morning. Not sure that any of the auto stores here have ever worked on a MO so I know, where is the port located to plug in the scanner?

Ok, went to the local fast food parts store, they attached the scanner and came up with a code P0507. Large vacuum leak, engine mechanical condition, and or electric throttle control actuator fault. I checked for vacuum leaks. There was not really anything mechanical done other than removing the intake, and opening the valve body butterfly by hand and cleaning all the normal, goo off of it. The battery was never disconnected nor was the key ever on with any connections not made. So in my thinking and other posts; do the re-learn on the throttle? What do you guys think? Any direction is appreciated.
Thanks,
Rich Collins

Most likely place for an air leak is the intake hose between air filter and intake manifold. Make sure the connection is in place and hose clamp tightened.

Ok checked all hose /vacuum connections for the 10th time there are no leaks. any other ideas? The idle is staying about 1000 rpm.

Ok ,…. Finally got some resolution. You have to be very precise when you do the idle re-learn there is a member ( Warhammer ) that stated “you need to use a second hand” very useful! got my idle under control, took about 6 tries to get it right. Then after about an hour of driving the SES light went out. I want to thank everyone that responded, and for all the time and effort of the other members that have taken their time; to put together the plug change and various other services for the MO. Made the job much easier and saved a lot of time. Just got back from a 5 day trip to Gatlinburg Tn. with family; the MO purred there and back. Averaged 23 MPG running 80 + ( on Shell Gas dont know why but I get higher gas mileage on all my vehicles 2013 AUDI A4, 98 Civic daily driver) on the interstate was about an 7 1/2 hour trip each way.
Thanks Again,
