Your O2 sensor may cool down (rendering anything monitored relatively
useless) and values start to go weird.
150 means it's starting to add fuel because 'seeing lean'.
Is it really lean--how else will you know ? Are you still giving the ECM an
'in gear' signal ? Is the idle speed higher than normal ? What about the
spark curve ? Too much idle advance--exhaust temps will drop--O2's get
colder -- however it's commanded to monitor the value still-- and BLM's get
I'd also tend to not rely on freeware so much. Just my .02
