I drove my RX from Sacramento to Reno this morning and i noticed my CEL was on. It only came on at high altitude through the pass, and as soon as I let my foot of the gas it would go out. I started paying attention to the activity and i noticed the CEL would come on if I was boosting for a prolonged amount of time. Usually long uphill stretches, and as soon as I let off the gas (had to get off the gas, not just get off boost) the CEL would go out.

I havent checked for any codes, but ive also noticed the car hesitates if I try to cruise and keep intake pressure at 0psi the car hesitates alot. It only runs smooth when its under boost.

I've had this happen to me too. CEL's on long uphill boostings. I would think the car is telling you its knocking. But I dunno..

I dunno either, the stereo was too loud to hear any knocking. I did turn it down to listen for engine noise, but i couldnt hear anything. I was also traveling at 80+ and my exhaust is pretty loud at that stage.

I guess I'll check for codes and try to track it down. Im thinking my TPS might need some adjusting.
