i removed my emissions this week and now im putting it back together. i removed the rats nest, did tb mod, and adjusted tps and now car wont start. it turns over but its not firing up. if i give it some throttle it will start to bump up the engine speed like its going to start but it just drops right back down. ive checked for vaccum leaks and found none, i only have 3 vaccum lines and all new rubber plugs cover the other nipples. anyone have any ideas?
