So - a friend brought over his killer SnapOn scan tool tonight...
Didn't read any issues initally, but this code came up after running for a while:
P1246 - Alternator Load Input

1st thoughts were maybe a bad ground (but where to check???)
? -Anyone have experience with that code- Thoughts???

Thanks again .... TimmaY

Oh- after cleaning the throttle body & IAC, checking wires and useing electric parts cleaner on connections, pulled the injectors cleaned and looked at the O rings and put a new fuel filter ... she started fine twice today and drove pretty darn smooth.
