Spray around the intake manifold with carb cleaner. If the engine smooths out or revs up, fix the leak. It sounds like a leaking intake manifold gasket.

My 1998 Explorer on startup idiling to high, it occasionally revs up and down while idiling. Is there a trottle position sensor that controls the idiling rpm?

there is a tps located on the intake where the inlet tube for air intake connects, it would be on the left side of the throttle body. does the trk run rough on idle? up/down sputter sometimes stall? Is check engine light on? if no light,check all vacuum lines for cracks/splits loose fit. do this by spraying carb choke cleaner on connections motor rpms will change if leak is present. also spray around perimeter of intake housing where mates with lower intake if engine revs you have bad intake gasket.I Just replaced upper and lower intake on my 98 and shazaam, runs like it should. but do your checks first,unessasary fixes are costly and **** you off.

My car overheated one day and found out it didnt have antifreeze. i put new antifreeze and changed the thermostat. now it shakes and eventually turns off when idling.

Do you know where the antifreeze went that left the coolant system. Is there a leak you can see on the ground where you park? Is it burning it through the engine? If so you might have antifreeze building up in the cylinders and that will cause your car to run rough. When it does run, do you have white smoke coming out the exhaust? Does it smell like antifreeze? Let me know

Overheating, losing antifreeze but not from radiator

It may be your heater core. the connections are plastic and do brake. Do you get hot air from your heater or defrost? Can you see the leak? Is it for a head-gasket? How's it running? Is it rough?

95 escort smoke from vents vibration when accelerating why??

The smoke you could be seeing may be steam, your heater inside the vehicle may have a leak and causing steam to rise out of the vents, if you are smelling the steam this is what I suspect.
Engine vibration could be a number of things, check the engine mounts to start, one of them is probably broken.

You can scan for error codes. Many auto parts stores have loaner meter for free. Call around Advanced Auto, AutoZone, VIP, NAPA, CarQuest, etc.

You can check for leaks in the intake vacuum hoses and other connections. With the engine running use a can of carburator starter sprayed on suspected places and see if engine speeds up. If so you found the leak!
NOTE: Do not spray starter fluid near or on hot engine parts or electrical elements, it will ignite very easily!

Have you check the fuel pump pressure ?
