Injector issues?

So i started my rig up this morning, as i pulled out of my gf's drive way i noticed my idle was a little rough ( like when you have that resistor mod ). i also noticed that my "service engine soon" light was on. As i drove home, everything seemed normal (EGTS,Fuel Pressure,Boost,Temp,Volts) didn't even notice any loss in power. i got on the HWY and hammered on it... then all of a sudden the service light went away.. and the idle was back to normal

did one of my injectors just pass through a kidney stone? :hard:

-165,000Miles

any feed back would be great!

Get a good scanner on it and retrieve codes. If the light came on, with the right tool, you can find what's out-of-spec to guide you. Do a "Buzz Test" and you can retrieve IDM codes as well as evaluate the injectors.
