My problem was solved when I repaired my 4 wd activation dash switch. The switch was contacting on 2WD & 4HI at the same time. The front differential activation is vacuum activated possibly creating a tug of war that didn't actually engage it but drained off vacuum from the engine? A theory at best but stumbbled across it because I knew the switch wasn't working properly I repaired it and low and behold rough idle disappeared and all is good for 3 weeks running.

If it only happens at a certain point in the throttle travel, it may be a bad TPS. You would need a computer to confirm loss of signal, but that is what it sounds like.

Have you heard of Noid lights? You unplug the fuel injector and plug these in and they will light up if the injector is getting power. This might give you a better hint. There are also lights that go inbetween the spark plug and wire. Between these two items you may be able to narrow down the problem to a specific system. I believe that your car has a coil pack. Some of these engines have problems with the crank trigger. I believe it is located on the back side of the motor. If you decide to change it, be careful. I have heard of them breaking into two pieces and becoming a big problem.

Testimonial: "thanks for your help. Its leaking water around the timing chain."
I had the same symptom and it turns out the previous owner had installed an aftermarket alternator pulley. That pulley, while saving a few horsepower, spun the alternator slower, and didn't produce enough juice to charge the battery at all - at idle I would kill my battery within the hour. I had to go back to a factory pulley, and presto - problem fixed! My lights don't dim to 50% brightness at a stop sign anymore :)
