    My wife drove the K5 for a couple of days this week. Since the thieves stole all my guages and my speedo quit working about a month ago, the only functioning guage I have is the fuel level. I figured it would be no big deal.

    Well the second day she drove it, it started idling poorly. I couldn't stand not having any guages. I became paranoid about what could be wrong.

    Maybe it was overheating? Don't know, I have no temp guage. Wonder how the oil pressure is? Don't know that either; no guage.

    After I got over my paranioa for the above, I figured I just need to adjust the idle. Hell can't do that either; no tach.

    Man, I can't wait 'til I have my guages replaced.

    That's why we bought this for the wife to drive: http://coloradok5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=132593
