Ugh. Spider injectors. Are you positive that you have all the vacuum hoses connected correctly and that all the plug wires were reinstalled correctly?

definitely put everything back the way it was suppose to be plug wires installed correctly, correct order but did notice vacuum hoses were a lil dried out. do you think they could cause the issue with starting and stalling? also would they stop vehicle from restarting after warm? I ask that cause that was the issue before changing everything.

Faulty/dirty idle air control valve possibly could be causing both issues.

Thank you for your help. Where can I find the idle air control valve
