OK here is a little update..

Not sure if this is the fix but called my buddy and he came over. Looked at the signs and said yes for sure I will need a new battery and my idle problem could be water in the fuel. I had a little under 1/4 tank of gas. We sat in the car a bit with my foot on gas to keep it running. After 20-30 minutes it would idle on its own. At that point He followed me to Shell for a full tank of V Power. Ran great there and back. Started and ran fine once home but battery barley started engine. I will report back tomorrow after I replace with new battery.
