Check for any air leaks between the mass airflow meter and the engine like the rubber being split on the air intake boots etc.. I once had a toyota that would do the same thing and the fix for that was to flush the coolant passages in the throttle body, worth a try. Also you said you replaced the TPS. If the TPS has slotted holes you must set the minimum TPS volts or that can also cause idling issues. Clean the throttle body as well.

There is usually a dimmer switch for the dash lights near the left side of the dash behind the steering wheel. Sometimes that can get bumped when you get in the car and turn the dash lights completely off.

If the starter works and there is no spark at the ignition coil, replace it. Check your center electrode wire too. A new distributor cap and rotor may be in order as well. If that doesn't fix it, your distributor is shot.

Pull the bulb back out and look in the plug. They get corroded and the tabs will spread apart and/ or break off. Bend them back if they are there, replace it , if not.. If it looks good, you need to use an ohm meter and check continuity of the tabs to the wire. They usually break close to the plugs.

If dealer will not provide, there are books available which have nothing but vacuum diagrams. FYI, most newer cars have basic vacuum diagrams on a sticker somewhere under the hood. Dirt often prevents one from seeing it.

Don't attempt it. It is not for the DIYer. There are very detailed procedures to follow and getting the timing right is is tricky. If you do attempt it buy a good manual and follow it closely.

Best guess is O2 sensor is reading too much unburned fue in the exhaust for some reason and leaning out the fuel flow to compensate. Runs when you throw more throttle at it but leans out as you try to hold steady speed. Should throw a code though.

Have someone in the car when you lock it from outside. The person that is inside needs to unlock the car for you. This deactivates the anti theft and it should start. Let me know if this works.

You may have over tightened the belt or the alignment may be out
