Question about 1998 Honda Accord
Is the check engine light on? if so, that would be the first place to start. if no light, check the vacuum lines around the throttle body closely.
you did a tune up - did you change the fuel filter? i restricted fuel filter can cause symptoms like this. it is located on the firewall, slightly to the passenger side.
double check all the connections on your new spark plug wires - a not quite all the way connection will miss at idle, but once the rpm goes up, do does the ignition voltage, jumping a slight gap. pull the wires back off and put them back on, feel for the positive "click" as it connects.
check your coolant level. if it is low, it can cause air to contact the coolant temperature sensor, cause idle and other driveability problems.
failing these things, go over the areas you were working very closely, ensure that there were no other electrical connectors and such that were disconnected / disturbed / not quite plugged in all the way.

Hello. Good. Now got get two bottles of a gas additive called Seafoam. follow the directions on the bottles and add this product to the fuel. Once you run a half tank of fuel through the engine your rough idle should be fixed. Joe
