I disassembled my engine to fix something else.

I disassembled my engine to fix something else about 3 months ago. Now when I start my car while the engine's cold, it stalls while idling within 5 seconds unless I give it extra gas. Even when I give it gas, it stalls at least once when I put it in gear. Then the engine will sputter and the car will slow down when I start moving after a stop sign. After I drive it long enough to warm up the engine, it drives fine. Then if I turn it off and start it while the engine's warm, at first it seems like it's not getting enough gas and sometimes I need to give it gas, but it won't stall. It also runs a higher engine temperature than it did before the engine work.
