Good write-up.
-Just for anyone out there that is wondering what happens.....
I Changed my filter a few weeks ago, but forgot about pre-charging the fuel lines before starting the engine. IT stalled once, then started the second time, but ran very poorly for about 45 seconds. Then the idle smoothed out a bit and I drove it around the block for a few minutes. It seemed like the car had lost about 75% of its power, and the check engine light came on. I drove around the block once more, and the car came back to life, the power came back, and the light went off.

All in all, it took about five minutes for the car to work properly again.

You down with UCC? Ya you know me!
