I would first try removing your gauge cluster and checking the connection at the back.

However, more often than not, this is a predecessor to the ignition module failing.

Check all wiring connections. Actually take it back to the shop that did the work and tell them the problem. No doubt he left you with a loose wiring connector, or pinched some wires.

In order to pull hte heads, and intake manifold of you have to disconnect just about every sensor wire, spark plugs, cap/rotor.

Take it back to the shop that worked on it and explain to them what happened and don't take no for an answer this sounds like something was not put back correctly and it should be fixed....don't let them tell you it's not related because it should not act like this after just being in the shop and gaskets replaced. They might have gotten the gaskets on wrong or maybe like Hanr3 said that a wire or hose maybe plugged/not installed correctly...
