How's your air filter?
You can also get the codes by stomping on the gas pedal 5 times with the ignition ON (engine not running) and reading the flashes of the Check Engine light. It'll blink once, then a series of quicker flashes indicating the trouble code. But the Peake's is a lot easier to use I guess.
