Hi, my name is Joe. I have a 94 Firebird with a 3.4L. The car was sat up before I got it, and after I replaced the fuel pump, injectors, spark plugs and wires, it ran great for a couple of days. Then I replaced the injectors again (advised by another mechanic) and it ran fine for a few hours. After testing, we replaced the PCM because the injectors seem to be fine. Also replaced the TPI Sensor, and a couple of other sensors, but it keeps bogging down and stalling. It will bog and die when accelerated. I noticed if I lightly tap the upper plenum with a mallet, and we straighten out for a little while. My number is 205-807-8781
My car has 46000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

If the problems started after you replaced the PCM, and the first PCM did not have any known issues, you might want to begin your diagnostic by re-installing the original PCM. Seems like you did a lot of work on the fuel system so be sure to replace the fuel filter in case the filter is plugged. If manipulating the plenum improved the idle, that would suggest a vacuum leak and you should check for vacuum leaks throughout including the EGR system, PCV system and so forth. Check the base ignition timing and ignition advance function (against Factory Service Manual specifications). Check for a restricted exhaust or a plugged catalytic converter (can check exhaust back pressure through port or infer backpressure by checking to see if intake vacuum is normal). After those obvious possibilities, an automotive scope would be used to look at secondary firing patterns in all cylinders to determine if the issue is fuel and/or ignition related and if so, which cylinders.
