...got her figured out.
Here it is.... The battery went stone cold dead after sitting for 6 months+. The engine computer lost its memory after sitting so long without power. The engine was running wild no matter what i did. (too lean one minute, too rich the next). And it definitely did NOT like starting in the cold. I tried so long to crank the motor over one cold morning thatI blew a quarter sized hole in one cell of the new optima (now on my third). So I had someone reflash the computer and replaced the optima. She purrs like a kitten again. Moral of the story: Don't let the battery go dead for too long. Bad things man, bad things!
Thanks again for all of your help and suggestions and sorry it took so long to get back to you guys (got deployed again). Bought a solar battery maintainer from a marine shop for the next long sit for the truck.
