Everyone telling me that it timing but I don't know how to time this car or if it even need to time. Plus I changed the spark plugs and wires and ingnition coil already.

Ok, no timing belt involved.

Re check your work to verify all connectors and grounds are hooked up.

It sounds like a vacuum leaks.

No codes. Ok when I get the car to start it has a quite knock or something. Then I try putting it in drive it hasitate like it going to die. I have to floor it. But when I stop it die. So u think it has to do with air leaks

Oh I don't know if it matter but the reason for the headgasket change was cus the engine flooded. But I clean all the se√ or and all the parts before putting it together
