So then you are saying that the car runs normal above idle? And at idle does it seem to shake and miss, or just a little rougher then normal?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Yes, it seemed almost normal when motoring at normal speeds

If the engine runs normal just above idle speed (900 rpm and up) Then your problem is a vacuum leak issue. Check the intake manifold gasket for any leaks, and all vacuum hoses/lines Thanks let me know how it all goes or if I can be of further assistance!
