98 TA WS6 5.7 starts then stalls after 3-4 secs

Asked by Sep 15, 2015 at 03:02 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 98 TA Ws6.  Headers, F.a.s.t throttle body, SLP 3" exhaust, LS6 intake, motor is 2001 Vette.  PCM is 2001 computer. Harness rewired for 99 and up.
Was throwing code P0340: "Camshaft Position sensor "A" circuit High Bank 1 or single sensor" . Then, traced all wires though harness from cam sensor to pins (wires) in PCM, Found a wire in wrong pin in connector, fixed and it starts rite up now but stalls after 3-4 secs. Also replaced two o2  sensors and cam position sensor. Now, no codes, but still starts and stalls! Also replaced fuel pump. Replaced "crank" pos sensor also.
