The purge valve should not cause a rough running issue at all. My guess is that either the spark plugs are gapped wrong or they are not good enough to withstand the heat. Check there first.If my answer has helped you, please help me by rating or accepting my answer. This does not cost you any more, it just allows me to be credited for my work.

OK what is the proper gap for them and also I did not use the dielectric grease will that cause a problem

What year cube is this? And no, dielectric grease is not conductive and it is only used for waterproofing.

The gap is 0.044". Make sure they are OE plugs, like NGK Or Denso Iridium.
