I was just taking off my TB on my 1998 Accent to change to a new one I just got, but in the middle of it, I figured I'll change it when I get an intake, to really maximize the new larger TB, so I put my stock TB and plug back all the lines and what not. When I go to start it, it starts, but it has VERY erratic idle. then I try to give it a little throttle, and right as it get back to idle, it dies....

can anyone PLEASE HELP!!!

TIA,
Chasen

Vacuum leak around the TB or disconnected vacuum hose to the TB or (if you got that far) a vacuum leak around the IAC or a faulty or disconnected IAC are the things I would check.

Yea, I was able to remove the OE TB, so I disconnected everything.

What is a IAC? Also, when you say vacuum hose, are you talking about the hose that is connected to the L-shaped "nipple" on the TB, or the other 2 hoses connected to the downward facing nipples on the TB?

Thanks,

I triple checked all the hoses/lines on the TB, or at least the ones that I touched, and everything seems to be tight, but when I start the car, there is a very distinct smell of fuel. Can anyone explain this?

Thanks,

You might have disconnected a fuel injector plug or something I suppose.

Yeah I was talking about the single hose that goes onto the L shaped connector at the bottom of the TB.

The IAC is the Idle Air Control motor which is one of the electronic units that's on the front of the TB. If you never removed it you should be fine.
