Fault with the IAC valve.there maybe a trouble code associated with it also./ Go to your nearby autozone or auto parts retailer and ask them to put a scanner to the car....make note of the codes if any are found. the IAC valve i usually locate don the throttle body and can be removed for inspection and sometimes cleaning using a good throttle body cleaner spray and a pipe cleaner brush.

You replaced the spar4kplugs but how about the plug boots, these boots are like sparkplug wires and they short out sometimes , with over 100,000 miles i would replace them, also you may have a bad coil . the coil is a complete unit its 4coils in one and may be misfiring, the other problem maybe a dirty throtlebody or bad idle air control valve, you said it runs rough at idle, i would first take it to have the computer scanned to see if there are any stored codes, the computer is always yesting all systems and when it sees a problem it stores a code, this code will tell you what is failing, many autopart stores will scan it at no charge, also if it sees the problem a certain about of times it will turn on the engine light, if you get it scanned and give me the codes i will be able to help you further. for example they may scan it and get a code that reads po302- cyl 2 misfire. this means cylinder 2 is misfiring and then you need to see why its misfiring, it may be due to a plugboot or coil or injector. i would scan it first. hope this helps. good luck.

Testimonial: "i will put boots on. amsoil fuel system cleaner seems to be helping also. thanks for your help"
Follow your air intake boot to your throttle body, your Idle Air Control will be the sensor with two torx bits ussually 20 bit. It is the sensor with the longer flat electrical connector the one beside it with the round pushi in plug is your tps.
