I'd start by looking at the first two, they could lead to the second pair of codes you have. Could you have disturbed something while replacing those parts? Vacuum lines when old are easily broken or dislodged, time to dig deeper.
'93 Safari shorty, 350 swap
'05 Astro AWD, lifted, 6 liter, cammed, ported and programmed for fast.
'69 G10, straight 6, 3 onatree, jumped at me when I had a pocketful of cash looking for a spare astro. :)

Diagnostic trouble codes exist to tell you what's wrong with the engine, so you need to look them up.
This is a great site to use. Just follow the troubleshooting there:
https://www.obd-codes.com/

Let us know if you run into trouble.

Also, please do not hijack old posts. I moved your question to its own topic in the Engine section. Thanks.
