Default found new problem on the 96 gc

i took the gc for a ride today after changing the distributor...after a couple miles it stalled on me again...i had a remote starter switch with me so i turned the key on and wiggled wires while i cranked it...when i wiggled the plug on the pcm it started right up..when i let go of the plug it died..so i put some tension on it with bailing wire and got it home...so i guess i'll be pulling the pcm and fixing some solder joints...i'd appreciate any advice from anyone that has done this before,,,thanks in advance

i took the pcm apart and fixed it...it runs great and never stalls or sputters...but its still hard to start after it sets for a while...if you shut it off and restart it..it starts immediately...but if it sits for a while it cranks for a while before it finally starts..any ideas?....thanks in advance

On your 96 it should be 37 to 41 psi idling and it should hold most of that pressure overnight at least. There should be SOME pressure after a few days as well. Maybe just enough to wet your finger, but not nothing.
