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

5

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.
