I kinda suspected as much. thank you.
my only concern was the fuel pump relay is not getting good contact from the fuse block and that has caused the stalling issue.
I think i have it fixed now but I have only gone a hundred miles or so since working on it so it is hard to say for sure just yet.
Weird electrical things are not my forte so i thought i would check in and see if anyone else has had strange stuff related to the fuse block.
I will try to get time to pull the egr today and see if just cleaning and checking hoses is enough. i just want to get my mileage back up to amazing it was always one of the things i liked best about the 96 vortex and part of what makes it my favorite year.
