If there are no codes stored, the check engine light will come on and stay on solid as long as the connector is shorted. If there are codes stored, the check engine light will start flashing them out in a repeating series. Short flashes stand for 1, long flashes stand for 10. If there are multiple trouble codes, they will be displayed in order with a short pause between them: 1st code, pause, 2nd code, pause, 3rd code, pause, 1st, pause, 2nd and so on.

I checked using a wire and the CEL just stayed solid -- no codes stored! Damn! Currently my buddy is cleaning out my egr system, hopefully that will do the trick!

It's the TPS sensor, clogged cat, or clogged fuel filter.

Check all of those. The fuel filter is a good cheap starting point.
