I've changed spark plugs and wires and replaced the linkage rods on the intake manifold originally it said I had a misfire on the number 5 cylinder?

When I have the Van in gear it won't run smooth and stalls just changed spark plugs and wires and put the manifold rods back on still having idle problem?

When it a stopped position it feels as if its going to stall out.

Now mind you, my van was recently broken into and was attempted to be stolen. The person or people that tried to take it were not able to, obviously. They broke the entire ignition and messed up some of the wiring. N now ever since that happened ive been having this problem.

I had to change the passenger mirror and rewire it and now drivers side driving light stays on. There were 2 black wires and 2 white wires, would it be because i wired one of them backwards?
