[DML] Re: HELP - Can't get car running after maintenance!

Go over all your work slowly and carefully. Better yet have another
person with a fresh set of eyes look it over if you can. Look for
something out-of-place, a vacuum hose not connected, dist cap not on
correctly, firing order messed up, etc. Make sure that the throttle
arm is tripping the idle micro and you plugged it into the white
connector. Make sure you reconnected ALL the ground wires on both
sides of the intake manifold. Make sure the spark plug wires are
snapped onto the spark plugs. Check that you put all the fuel lines
back correctly. Check that the air tube for the idle motor is in and
not leaking. It is obviously something you did so all your work is
suspect. It is also possible (not likely) that one of the new parts
you installed is defective. Most common is a couple of vacuum leaks
which will keep it from idling right.
