I went for a cat food run about 10 minutes after posting my original message and everything was back to normal. Cranking was at 10.0, and it was a steady 13.7 while I was driving. I did have Advance Auto Parts check it (they've got an electronic tester that checks a lot of stuff) and they said it was holding a charge fine. The guy that did the testing was the manager and he's helped me in the past with problems on my Lincoln and he seems to know what he's doing. Maybe the car was just feeling neglected?:) lauraknopsamousergraphics.com http://www.madmousergraphics.com web design, print design, photography
