[DML] running rough after tune-up

i just recently did a tune-up on my D - had the fuel injectors
cleaned, replaced vaccuum hoses, coil, plugs, wires, cap, rotor,
seals, washers, gaskets, fuel filter, air filter, oil filter, main
fuel line, etc.  when i first started it up it ran okay, but after it
would warm up i noticed the idle was really erratic.  it would dip
down to approx 600rpm, then shoot up to 1250 or so.  it seems like the
engine is on the verge of stalling when that happens.  at this time it
still drove okay, just the idle was bad.  now, the problem is worse. 
in just 2 days time without driving it a whole lot, it has NO
acceleration.  there is a LOT of hesitation and its basically
undrivable because of how slowly i accelerate.  

i've tried checking for vaccuum leaks with an incense stick with no
luck - i also tried the propane tank trick that was suggested.  i
haven't been able to find a vaccuum leak, but who knows i might be
missing something.  it seems to me like something may have been shaken
loose since it has progressively gotten worse?  

any advice for what to check would be much appreciated.
