Which vacuum line? If you have large vacuum line unhooked, say brake booster for an example, and hook it back up quickly, the idle air control valve may not be able to react quick enough to keep it running. Will it idle if you start the engine with the vacuum line hooked up? If not, you may have a bad or stuck IAC valve. It's really just a computer controlled vacuum leak.....

You have to reset the ''Idle Air Control'' motor again :!: get someone to start the engine keep it around 1500 rpm, hook up the vacum line and slowly let it come to Idle again you may have to repeat this if you let it die out, try to keep it running so the computer can reset :!: :!:

Manifold Air Pressure, air flow thru intake, it monitors vacum in intake to regulate fuel mixture along with 02 sensors, Mass Air Flow monitors in coming air flow to engine, if the engine runs better with it off then it is faulty, If it run's good and no check engine lamp just leave it off.

Leave the MAF sensor on. It tells the puter how much air is going into the engine and witht the o2, rpm and other inputs it tells the puter how to fuel and idle it. Get yourself a scan tool and LEARN whats going on if you wanna hot rod it....unless daddys got deep pockets.

Good Luck
