I replaced my valve cover gaskets, took me a couple of days since I could only work on it from right after work till dinner time. Wife has been sick, so I had to take care of kids and dinner, but the valve covers were just dumping oil so had to get it done... anyways, everything went pretty smooth, got things back together no problems, but now... my engine dies the moment I try to start it. I try to keep it running with my foot on the gas, but unless I'm revving up, it just dies.

going to take it apart tomorrow, but before I do, what should I be looking for in my mistakes?

Before you tear it apart look and make sure all the sensors you unplugged are plugged back in. Is that a 4.0 or 3.0? Sounds like a stuck IAC
