I blew a head gasket then had it towed home. It started straight up without any problems or noises for me to pull it in the garage. So I rebuilt it. Now it starts and idles very low then dies after 30 sec. What could be the problem. I know the timing belt is in the correct location. Thanks in advance.

Scan for codes and check fuel pressure first. Then check for vacuum leaks. Also clean throttle plateon both sides with choke cleaner. Also iac hole.
