Has your engine gotten wet? Sounds like water around your spark plug boots down in the port around the spark plugs. If there is any water down there, make sure you blow it out with air compressor prior to removing plugs, or it will drain directly into the engine. Another scenario, could be EGR valve or related parts.  Is your check engine light on? With that rough of a ride, it should be. If it is an auto parts store should be able to read the code to help pin point the problem. Good Luck!

SOURCE: 1996 Honda Accord Rough Idle Even After tune up

Perform a valve clearance inspection and adjust if necessary. Tight or sticking valves will cause a misfire or rough running concern. Note: Perform valve adjustment when the engine is stone cold. 4cyl: INT 0.26mm EXH: 0.30mm (V6 engine are hydraulic and no adjust necessary.) Also check for a sticking or stuck open EGR valve. For diagnostic purposes only: Remove the EGR valve. Place a business card over the EGR passage and bolt the EGR valve back on. This plugs the EGR ports and if the misfire goes away the EGR valve is partially stuck open and is defective.
Check for low fuel pressure. Check for low compression. Check cam timing. Check for a weak ignition coil. Also don't over look the possibility of worn or broken engine mounts which cause excessive engine movement and engine vibration. -hope this helps

There could be many issues. These codes read your engine is running too lean. Check : all your vacuum hoses for leaks, PCV valve and hose, MAF sensor. This may require an experienced technician to figure this out. Hopefully I help'd!!

Why does my 98 ford explorer eddie bauer cuts off when i stop


In most cases as mentioned above the IAC can contribute but in your case sounds like your Throttle Control Position Sensor Switch eith er has a bad connection or the switch is bad all together. they are betwen 25 and 40 dollars any parts store stocks it.

2003 Ford Explorer XLT Wants To Stall At Low Idle,, especially when at a stop light


How does it idle in park , does it run ruff or smooth? Are any lights lit on the dash , check engine etc. ? Could have a partially plugged IAC air passage .idle air control (IAC) valve ! The engine computer uses the IAC to control idle , when under a load such as when put into gear the computer raises the idle ! It does this by allowing more air to by pass the closed throttle into the engine raising the idle ! If these air passages clog they restrict the air flow an cause a idle problem ! Now if it runs ruff at idle in park you could have vacuum leak ! Rough Idle How to Fix Ford Taurus Engine Stalls at Stop Signs

Air filter, fuel filter, clean the inside of the throttle and the idle air control motor. Clean the MAF sensor. Do a tune up.

First, do a tune-up. Make sure your air filter is clean and the idle air passages in the carburetor are clear. I assume at one the idle mixture was properly set, so if it's no longer idling properly, something else has changed. Fouled plugs or bad fuel could be a cause. In particular, ethanol-blend fuel that has been in the tank for several months will not work well in engines without electronic controls.

MY '98 EXPLORER WITHA 4.0E ENGINE DOESN'T IDLE RIGHT HAVE CHANGED MOST OF THE INTAKE SYSTEM OR CLEANED IT BUT WON'T IDLE RIGHT AND DIES OFTEN AT LOW RPMS LIKE AT TRAFFIC LIGHTS. IS THIS THE COMPUTER? OR...


idle air control valve sensor and a tune up would probably help the fuel milage plus a new 02 sensor. catalystic converter may be getting restrictive as well. new fluids may help for milage as well.

My 99 ford explorer cuts out and dies when accelerating in drive


You may have dirty or clogged fuel injectors, may also be problems with the ignition system. Might also check the fuel pressure to make sure the fuel pump is working correctly.

01 ford ranger 4x4 4.0V6-- rough idle like it wants to cut off. loses power or studders under acceleration. struggles to get up to 55 or 60


I agree. Try replacing the spark plugs, install new spark plug wires, change the air filter, change the fuel filter, and test the battery and alternator. Run a bottle of fuel system cleaner and water remover through it. To replace the spark plugs you'll most likely have to go through the wheel wells cause of their hard accessibility from the top. The fuel filter is located on the inside of the frame on the driver's side. Hope this helps. God bless
