GMC Safari: 1996 Safari all of a sudden was stumbling badly

Customer Question
1996 Safari all of a...
1996 Safari all of a sudden was stumbling badly and couldn't go beyond 30mph. I went ahead and replaced a bunch of parts...
- intake manifold gasket
- fuel spider
- plenum gasket
- valve cover gaskets
- throttle body gasket
- PCV
- thermostat
- cleaned IAC
Fixed original problem, but new problem...
- Loud hiss at shut down, near passenger side, alternator.
- Slight stumble and hissing at a complete stop.
- Completely stalls when shifting to neutral or park. Here's a video... https://youtu.be/LUkWhDQgnz0
I tried looking for vacuum leaks with carb cleaner from the doghouse but no luck. Can't really access the manifold from the front without pulling things apart, which I want to avoid!
Any ideas??? Thank you!!!

Diagnosis please
GMC Mechanic: Amedee, GMC Technician replied 1 year ago
Ok, no problem. The intake needs to be smoked checked using a smoke machine to locate any air/vacuum leaks.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Before going to a smoke machine or doing a bunch of troubleshooting do you have a photo of what an Evap valve set up looks like for my engine? I'm wondering if it's set up wrong. Could that cause the symptoms I'm experiencing?
GMC Mechanic: Amedee, GMC Technician replied 1 year ago
You mean an evap system diagram?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Not the whole system. I think just the Evap purge solenoid and all the hoses and wires that connect to it.
