MERCEDES BENZ 260E GAS PROBLEM

1989 Mercedes Benz 260e

Engine Mechanical problem
1989 Mercedes Benz 260e 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 180000 miles

I recently replaced the intake manifold gaskets but now the car doesn't stay on. I'm positive that I installed the gaskets correctly. I can only keep the car on if I keep the car on if I keep my foot on the accelerator, if not it will slowly turn off. When I get the to about the 5th try in starting the car, it begins to lose power and the headlights dim. I have checked the fuel filter, alternator, battery, spark plugs and changed the timing belt. Please I need help because I have to sell this car. Thanks in Advance.
