Thanks, my local trusted mechanic and friend is going to test everything out for me tomorrow. The battery (Deca) is brand new and I always clean the battery cables / they are on good. Closer inspection of the starter does show the years of oil that got on it, probably from chaning the oil filter. Tested the battery already and the cables are good too.
I will let you know what I find. Reading through some of the other posts that have had similar symptoms, it very well may be the starter (will replace w/ new orig part - no reman stuff). The fuel pump activating and everythign else electrical works fine.
The starter seem pretty simple to remove and reinstall.
Keeping it simple...
