Check your fuel lines for hardening or cracking, and ensure they are connected to the inlet/outlet ports tightly. Ethanol damages many of the plastic parts.

Good carburetor cleaner, and ensure you have fresh gasoline that is properly mixed.

Idling problem

you stated the bad , but what is the good.
can it be driven? with full power.
your car has no year? and if working engine,? what engine? option
ever get a 60,000 mile tune up this decade? (just old spark plugs do this)
you start the cold engine/
can you keep it running, with a fast right foot action?
starts after 5min, then runs perfect all day???????

my guess, is one more missed tune up.

Runs ruff idling when cold!

Check your choke system first, fix any anomalies then if all OK check your carb systems including your air cleaner.
If those steps doesnot resolve your problem ask me again for other possibilities. Good luck

Dodge intrepid 1997 not getting spark i changed computer and still wont start

Check the wiring that runs near the coil. There are a few thin wires in the group that become frail..move them around while someone is turning the key. You may be surprised.
