Bucking, popping back, can only feather the gas

Ok Here goes.
I also have a 2.5 that runs poorly in a 95 Stratus.
I have put new wires, plugs, crank sensor, cap, rotor, Reman. Dist. I have tested All sensors. The EGR sys. Functions(passed the tests)but there is moisture in the vacuum line and the vacuum port will plug soon after hooking up. Will this car run with the vacuum lines off?
It starts and runs decent until warmed up. Then You have to feather the gas to get it to move without stalling. It bogs and pops back and will stall.
No codes show up at the dealer. I'm Having the remanufactuer of the dist. Test another one and send it to me since this is the only thing I can think that may be the problem. It can not be checked for faults like sensors can.

There was a TSB for 97 and earlier Dist. Having a problem with coil pack solder joints and the dealer thinks that is the problem since there are no codes and I installed a 185 $ aftermarket dist. Instead of their 930$ factory unit !
Oh. I did find that the front oxg. Sensor did not have 12 volts to it as per the Chilton specs. And when testing the voltage at the fuse block where the ASD relay is. The term. That Is supposed to have 12 V. Constant does. But the term that is supposed to be switched is also constant 12V.
I will let you know if the new dist. Cures the problem.
Any body with any Ideas?
Why would the keyed term to the ASD relay be always hot even with the key off.
Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

The ASD relay is activated by the PCM/Computer

The problem has been resolved by replacing the dist.
It runs like new now.

Am glad you got it going again- I gave you the ASD relay for a start because if its not working properly the coil will not produce the maximum secondary voltages, it powers the ignition coil and in your case it was being caused by the reman. Distributor.

As moderator I must respond to all needed assistance in the auto repair forums paid or not. It took you awhile to comeback, sorry it happened this way.
