(bump) WITH CODES!
And new info!
Went to get the codes and try some things. Found out some new info:
It ran fine BEFORE it warmed up. So I attempted to drive it home, or to the office, both places where I can better/more easily attempt to diagnose the problem.
Ran fine for a mile or so. Then started acting up again. The check engine light did, in fact, come on. The smoke was thick and white with an ever-so-slight bluish tint.
It did this for about a half mile, (or 20 minutes, depending on how you want to look at it) and then it just... stopped doing it. The gas peddle came back to life, the smoke went away, and I was able to drive it the rest of my 4ish mile drive to the office.
Everything is running fine now. Maybe something gummy got in, but got worked out?
As a point of potential interest, shortly before it started working 'normal' again, a truck was coming up from behind me very fast, so i instinctively crushed the skinny peddle to attempt to power out of his way onto the shoulder. It acted like it was going to die, then when it cleared up and smoothed out again, that is when the fuel peddle came back to life and I was able to drive it normally with no problems after that.
I'm sure there is still something that needs looked at, but maybe that gives a better idea?
