2007 V8 diesel sport. Missing badly at idle (650 RPM) when cold, runs smoothly if revs raised to 1000 RPM. Does not appear to miss under full power, and will generally run smoothly at idle when warm.

most likely bad injector tips
have them serviced and raise the idle to 750 rpms as the lower idle speed may not be raising the combustion pressure temperature to ignite badly sprayed fuel ( diesel has to be atomized not squirted )

Backfiring and constant miss firing, engine not running smoothly during idling and loud miss firing sound at exhaust at full throttle opening.

You have a timing problem. Check for loose/broken belts. also see if the distributer cap is worn out or cracked. Replace it if it looks worn out. Change spark plugs....
Sounds like a typical ignition problem. If your handy, you can do this all yourself.
Change plugs wires and distruber cap.

My audi 1995 2 6 quattro is lackin power runs fine tho

1. When idle, listen to the engine and see if there is any miss fire. If you hear some misses, not a smooth run, it means either you have to replace the spark plugs because one or more are not working or one of the leads to the spark plugs isn't connecting properly. It is recommended you change the spark plugs every 10.000 miles given it's a 15 years old car.
2. If there's a smooth idle run, then there might be something wrong with the fuel pump (which is located close to the fuel tank under the car) or with the air valve which is located near the engine, both can be clogged not passing enough fuel or air required.

1991 Chevy Caprice has a mild miss fire and stall at low rpm: This is my latest update: I checked and cleaned the EGR,PCV,IAC valve, M.A.P sensor and Throttle body(bore/butterfly). with carb cleaner....

Do you have the idle speed turned up to keep it from dying? Because it is high. Check engine light on? Have you checked for vacuum leaks at the gasket under the throttle body? How does the car run under acceleration? You might have a worn distributor shaft.

1979 Lincoln Continental Town car has a rough idle (400 cid). I have checked the timing and replaced the spark plugs and wires along with cap and rotor? What else could cause a smooth idle then a heavy...

I"d lean toward the dirstributor itself. You were right to check the timing but a balky distributor would cause occaisional mis-fires. Apart from that, the timing chain itself would be the next likely culprit.

Check engine light comes on temporarily - engine chuggs at idle

Before changing you pcm try cleaning your egr valve. remove the valve and see if its stuck in the open position if so use a small pick to clean around the spring.
