Sounds like your IAC. I would also take off and clean my PCV valve and EGR valve and body with throttle body and intake cleaner. By the way, did you check the air filter?

I change coil pack,transmission speed sensor but the engine still in rough idle


Would search first inlet air leak in between air box and engine - all hoses on, clamps tight no cracks
then disconnect idler control - about where the engine accelerate cable comes in / most probably opposite. Problem still there?
look for ignition - plugs, check leads with multimeter, connections

Same issue with the rough idle with a warm engine 4.0 Ranger


i would think a plugged fuel injector on # 6 cylinder could be the problem,or a big vacuum leak at that cylinder
a valve burnt/stuck could be but you dont see much of that anymore
could be coolant leaking into cylinder from leaky haed gasket but you would have to add coolant every so often
i would check #6 cyl. spark plug after driveing around a while if it looks new, ie no deposits on it then an injector would be what i would change next

Car idles rough in park also runs rough in overdrive


Sometimes a rough idle like that is a fuel filter. As you've already done the plugs and wires the fuel filter would be my next bet.

Rough idle after intake gasket changed


Check all the old hoses or vacuum lines leading to the manifold...i found a small crack in one of my lines that was causing me a rough idle..of course it was way in the back were i could hardly see it...use an inspection mirror and take your time. also a plugged cooling sensor lie leading to the throttle body could possibly cause this problem too..it senses the temperature and regulates the idle circuitry.
