Car won't pull back speed when foot off accelerator


Very possibly a vacuum issue. Maybe a line that needs vacuum for the trans is on an inlet that effects the throttle. Not sure how old your vehicle is.

Rough idle random cylinder misfire


misfires are more from problem injectors, low fuel pressure or injector wiring than from plugs
have a fuel pressure test done to check for problem pressure regulator , problem fuel pump , blocked m/dirty filter
one other area of concern is the EVAP system where the purge valve doesn't vent the tank properly and causes low fuel flow rates

@1000rpm car idles good, under 1000rpm,engine has rough idle, even cuts off at stop light or stop sign


you may want to check your Idle Control Solenoid Valve if it needs cleaning. This is a common issue. If this does not help, I would ask for more details like maker and engine model.
