    Found the following tip on a rather obscure site... it's a troubleshooting search engine if you will.

    Major engine work can be a long and tedious job without having subsequent driveability problems after you’re done. But if you experience idle problems after
    doing major engine work, here’s a tip that can save you a lot of diagnostic
    time. If the vehicle exhibits a surging idle after it warms up, check for code #
    14, which is for the electronic air control valve solenoid (EACV). If you have this
    code, you may have crossed the connectors for the EACV with the Purge
    Control solenoid valve. These two connectors are identical in shape as well
    as being very close together in the engine compartment. The best way to
    identify the connectors is by using the wire colors to differentiate them. Both
    connectors have a yellow wire with a black stripe, which is the power feed
    wire. The EACV has a blue wire with a yellow stripe, while the Purge Control has a red wire. A simple repositioning of these connectors should alleviate the idle
