Hi there. Check all of the vacuum lines to the engine and make sure that they are all connected or plugged off if they are not needed. Check the spark plugs and see what condition they are in. If the engine was at a salvage yard, its possible that the engine may have been sitting for a while and the spark plugs may have rust on them. I recommend putting in OEM spark plugs and new spark plug wires with a new cap and rotor. If you need further assistance with your engine stumbling, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
