740il Startup and Quickly Die

01 740iL - I recently fixed a valley pan coolant leak - After the Valley Pan repair, I reconnected all connectors, including the fuel line, and vacuum hoses.

However, after getting everything reconnected and turning the key. The car would try to startup but it shake, and quickly die.

I went back and reviewed all connection to verify that everything was still connected and they appear to be all connected.

One error thing that I did while trying to place the plastic mesh covered materia Vacuum pipe back into position. I bent it and it cracked. However, I can not feel the crack while in placed.

I thought that the car would startup fine, but may have some mis-fire issues because of the pipe.

I'm going to replace the pipe this weekend, However, I wanted to check to with you all to see if you think it's the pipe or maybe something is still not connected.

I'm also going to spaiy the connector with some contact cleaner. But wanted to see what you guy think? The vacuum pipe is item number 6 on the below link drawing... Help, me get my baby back on the road....
