    is the mass air flow connected?? make sure it is plugged in and working. I never recommend these units as it alters the factory routings which makes a difference in computer operations.

    Fuel control sensor is out of calibration (e.g., ECT, IAT or MAF)
    Fuel delivery system supplying too much fuel during cruise or idle periods (e.g., faulty fuel pump, or faulty pressure regulator)
    Fuel injector(s) is leaking or stuck partially open (one or more)
