Thanks Boris - good info! Especially about the fuel pump; hadn't considered that.
I think the WIS is written under the assumption that the TB went bad and that's why it needs replacing and that caused the engine to be sent into limp home mode; in that case, there would presumably be a code to clear (and the solenoid needs to be reset).
Yes, the car has sat. It had 28K miles when I bought it; the PO only put a few thousand on it in the year he owned it, and the original owner (92 y/o) obviously drove it very little in 15/16 years.
I've been running good fuel in it, but since it sits so long, the fuel is likely getting stale and that's something I need to be more pro-active about (and I need/want to drive it more!). Other than the issue with the leak and the other issue I posted about with the intermittent surging, it's running well considering. I do seem to think it's a little jumpy when I first accelerate but that could be because I'm used to my Jeep with drive-by-wire where I really have to mash on it to get it to move.
More than likely it seems it might have been over-tightened when it was re-installed whenever that was and that compromised the gasket. Removal and re-fitting seems pretty straightforward and since it's at the top of the engine, I may end up just buying a new one and wrenching it myself to save a few bucks.
