    I have a 1997 F250 powerstroke with the same problem. Idles ok when cold, drives beatifully but when it warms up, the idle is so rought my hand and legs can be seen shaking. We've replaced the lift pump, filters, even a fuel injector that came up as a code. We haven't tried the intake hose and throttle body but will do that next. Any other suggestions?

Idle good when cold, hotter it gets the worst it idles especially when sitting at stop lights

simple test for a vacuum brake booster
star and run the engine at idle without applying the foot brake
if it gets worse when the foot brake is applied , it is a vacuum leak in the booster ( replace the booster )
otherwise check for failed vacuum hoses including under dash control lines , vacuum leak at the manifold or EGR unit

Engine running rough

Need more information.
6 or 8 cyl engine?
Do you notice the rough running only at idle? Only when accelerating? Is it worse when the engine is cold or warm? Is there a check engine light? (if not, there likely will be one soon).
Did it start doing it after a service or after filling with fuel?
