well, I think I just aquired a project for this weekend (as if I needed another one!) -- the 300TE has been getting the rough idle back, has a gas smell, and stalls occasionally hot at idle.

Sounds like I need to check the EHA (if they leak, they are bad, by the way -- they aren't working properly even if the mixture stays in control, and contribute to rough idle and throttle lag), and need to check the O2 sensor. At 206,000 miles I suppose I'd not be shocked it was dead! Especially since it uses some oil and had a valve job done at 160,000 miles.
