Thanks Everyone - this gives me some ammo to start with...
OK - I found the port and got a scanner - I needed one anyway (the best excuse to buy tools) and nothing is being reported

TPS checked out, as did the CTS using an ohm meter...

I pulled #1 plug and it was fouled and smelled of gas, #8 was fouled and wet with gas...so I'm heading down to get some new plugs as the old ones look really bad at the electrode anyway....

Any other cheap ideas? My only other option is to have this thing towed to a shop and I'd rather not go that route for a rig I'm trying to sell!
