My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
The first thing that needs done here is to make sure everything that was removed or moved was put back in properly.In allot of cases I find that something was left loose or disconnected when the repairs were done causing issues like this here.
If this was all checked and found o.k. have the engine checked over for any vacuum leaks needing repaired as this can also cause this.
Thanks Pete
