It NEVER is.
I plan to get a code reader on it by the weekend to see if it stored anything just to be sure. The fact that it went out and hasn't come back makes me think it was a one time thing especially if the car has been running fine.

We had a really wicked storm last night, and knowing me, I got stuck in a drivethru for 10 minutes because the person ahead of me ordered the whole restaurant. Starts raining, I cringe because it is really clean. Get home today from school, open the garage door, and to my surprise, she's clean! It's amazing what Rain-X infused car wash can do.

Leaned it out up top. Much better. Actually wants to pull now vs feeling a bit sluggish (but still pulling).
Just have to clean it up a little and then test and make sure it follows Base Fuel. ... I took 10% out!

After that, start adding spark and see how much it'll take. Doing 30* from 6,500 up right now. Should be able to get close to 35* near 8,000.

Took it to the dealer for an oil change/inspection.

Found bad lower ball joints, worn tie rod ends, and a leaking axle seal.

So looks like its parts buying time.

Woo!

Have to do an axle seal on my truck to.

Installed some Redline Tuning hood struts. A pretty easy installation. The installation directions are spot on. It took about an hour or so to do. The first side about 45 minutes, the other about 15. I raise the hood about chest high and the struts do the rest. When closing, pull down about 3/4 closed and it has no pressure. So I'm able to close hood as usual. I paid around $86.00 shipped.
