ToMang07 still has a point, the pcm learns a pattern good or not. My Y2K had been driven for the first 260K miles of its' life like a hybrid car and let me tell you what, it was gutless....
I hooked up to a small four horse gooseneck trailer with one horse in it and took it to a rodeo some 100 miles away. The motor over heated to redline three times the way there, and I was having to drop three gears to climb some of the hills that our '03 would have handled like a walk in the park.
After that trip and having it a WOT 75% of the time just to keep 65mph in a 70 zone, the PCM must have reset itself because on the way back it was noticeably better to drive only having to drop out of overdrive in a couple sections and the fan kicked in when it needed to, it must have been the first time in it's life it was needed...
