    sounds like a bad ect sensor to me. It's on the drivers side head above #1. 420-430 are cat related.327 is your front knock sensor. Washed the engine with a garden hose lately?

    Thats the sensor that tells the ecu the temperature I believe. It shouldnt cost much. Can codes be thrown and the check engine light not come on??

    ect sensor is very easy to replace. ~$30 at any parts store.
    Here's a pic from the forsale section. You can see the ECT in this pic. It's the gold and black thing in front of the #1 primary tube
