Angry Prelude Idle issues...need help badly

I have 96 Honda prelude F22b, lets start from the beginning of the problems. The car recently broke a timing belt and bent 2 valves, which were fixed and seated. Valve clearance set at Intake: 0.003-0.004 in. (.07-.11mm)
Exhuast 0.006-0.007 in. (.15-.19mm), timing belt replaced as well as the balancing belt. Car started and was driving but idling low and stalling when coming to a stop. The Egine check light comes on often as well especially if i push the car but all i have to do is stop turn off and go again and it goes off. I turned off the car for about 5-10mins one time and it would not start for hell, took me 3 tries. So next day Idle was adjusted and after that the idle began to fluctuate in neutral and park. The IACV was adjusted, nothing changed except now it sometimes fluctuates in Drive now, so i cleaned it also and nothing changed. I am pretty sure they are no vacuum leaks. There is also a load noise that now comes from my throttle body through the air fliter. Can someone please help??
