    No, there is no "fail safe" switch on your engine. I suspect you still have a vacuum leak somewhere as this will produce the symptoms you describe. Try using a spray bottle of soapy water and squirt all around the intake plenum and the vacuum hoses leading to the engine. It could also be the first signs of a clogged fuel filter or fuel pump going bad. Change the filter and listen for the operation of the pump when you turn your ignition key to the "on" position. Lastly, I would check the spark plugs and wires for wear.
