I'm no mechanic but if your engine were running closed loop all the time it IMHO is probably the OBC module and you should notice it.

I posted a similar question about my 04 Lariat 60k 5.4 3V light was on. Gages hesitated to register and bounced a bit at start up. The digital trip, gas mileage, etc.. info would reset. I was thinking gremlin....

It was recommended I check the battery. Sure enough, original battery from MotorCraft. Replaced it a few days ago with Interstate Megatron and all has been perfect! Worls of differnece.

Well.... I appear to have no engine running problems. I crank it up and it has the high idle for a few seconds like it normally should and then idles properly. Then it runs normal... no misfires, no weird noises... just normal. I really don't know where to look until I get a code check done. Be gettin that done this weekend.
Thanks for the input.
