When it dies have you removed the coil wire from the coil tower and had a helper crank it over and if so do you have a nice blue spark from the tower?

Yes both wires should be hot with the key on , the red wire is the power side and the other side is the ground switching side which should ground switch on cranking.
hi ron today i try another new pcm and nothing. while cranking i notice that at the end of the cranking it wanted to start because i see some injector pulse but only at the end of the cranking time. then i keep trying and finnaly it start but right after it died. then it did it again and before it die i pump gas so stay on while i was pumping gas but when i let go the gas pedal like it loose the injector pulse and died again. now, do u think the distriburator has to do anything with it?? bacause i believe inside the distriburator there is a cam or crank sensor, and if it fails the car somethimes will start and others wont and it may die too.. what do u think??
i finnaly replace the distriburator and its working every time i started. now it sounds like its out of timming how do i do to fix the timming issue??
