This seems to be plausible, but how was the MFTS out of adjustment?  We 
checked (removed boot and re-attached the contacts) the connector for the 
IAT sensor, ISV and TPS.  I still think the 'gremlin' is in there somewhere. 
The car starts fine when cold, iffy when warm.  I have tried turning the key 
off then back on, this sometimes works.  Yesterday I turned the key and got 
the limp mode (CEL on), tried several off/on cycles but got the light every 
time.  I drove (limped) off and tried the off/on while stopped at a traffic 
light.  Third try, it fired up with no CEL, drove fine the rest of the way 
home.  I don't know how else to explain it.  It seems that as it goes 
through the 'start cycle' it decides whether or not to give me a hard time.
