I'd say most likely you're catalytic converter and or the EGR valve may need repaired or fixed. THe EGR recycles some exhaust in order to recombust fuel. The catalytic converter reduces toxicity of emissions. Car dealers can diagnose these thing for around $100-200.

Pt cruiser missfiring

Were you having this problem before they worked on it? If not, that's odd?
Check for applicable trouble codes. If a single cylinder miss-fire, the codes should tell which cylinder, then you check spark--fuel--compression on that cylinder.
Do you notice the problem at idle or going down the road? The basics for a rough idle is to check for a leak of some kind, fuel--egr--vacuum leak.

P0302 when cold only

The code is for a miss-fire on cylinder two, it could be from a faulty spark plug or injector among other things.
Once you get above 2000 rpm the other 3 cylinders can cover the loss of power.

Kia spectra 2002 ls, has 65000 miles on. idle kind of rough while standing usually when a/c is on.

Make sure all your cylinders are firing, also have your motormounts checked, that also will cause engine roughness.

My car has a rough Idle only when it is in gear, idles perfect when in neutral.

Check spark plugs and spark plug cables. Sounds like the rough idle is due to not all cylinder firing when you accelerate (load to the engine). Look for worn or damages spark plug cables.
