OFF.
The FPM circuit is wired to a pull-up voltage inside the PCM. The FPM circuit will go high if, with the key ON and the fuel pump commanded OFF, the 
FPM/FP

P0298 – Engine Oil Over Temperature Condition Indicates the Engine Oil Temperature Protection strategy in the PCM has been activated. This will 
temporarily
prohibit high engine speed operation by disabling injectors, therefore reducing the risk of engine damage from high engine oil temperature. Note: On 
engines which
are equipped with an oil temperature sensor, the PCM reads oil temperature to determine if it is excessive. When an oil temperature sensor is not present, 
the PCM
uses an oil algorithm to infer actual temperature. Engine shutdown strategy function is the same on vehicles with and without oil temperature sensors.

possible
blockage.

P0301 through P0310 – Misfire Detection Monitor The misfire detection monitor is designed to monitor engine misfire and identify the specific cylinder in 
which the
misfire has occurred. Misfire is defined as lack of combustion in a cylinder due to absence of spark, poor fuel metering, poor compression, or any other 
cause.
Ignition system
Fuel injectors
Running out of fuel
EVAP canister purge valve
Fuel pressure
Evaporative emission system
Base engine
The MIL will blink once per second when a misfire is detected severe enough to cause catalyst damage. If the MIL is on steady state, due to a misfire, this 
will
indicate the threshold for emissions was exceeded and cause the vehicle to fail an inspection and maintenance tailpipe test.
