I have replaced the thermal fast idle valve and the air idle valve. The injectors were removed and sent in for service approx. 2k miles ago. I also performed a cold engine valve adjustment. The seems to run fairly well with the light on and even after it goes out. It has a slight surge in rpm's sitting at idle.
