96 escort runs rough after changing thermostat

We changed the thermostat in our 96 escort wagon. Car idles fine, but as soon as it is in gear it runs rough, dies. We checked all air hoses, ok. We had removed the neg. bat. cable as instructed when changing thermostat and reattached. Could that be problem? what do you suggest for troubleshooting? Thanks!

Did you disconnect the water temp sensor and any of the other electrical connectors or just the neg battery cable?

What engine do you have?
