Timing belt & idle

In theory, the timing belt could cause roughness. However, your description sounds like something else is going on. Since engine roughness depends on ignition timing, proper mixture and decent compression, take a look at all three areas. You've tried the typical ignition components but how about the cam and crank sensors? If any of these act up, the engine will have poor timing.
Is it also hard to start at times? Is it rougher running when cold versus hot? Any other such details you can provide would be helpful. Have you run a compression check? Any error codes set by the computer?

how about the injector resistor? my buddy's car had an ambient misfire was running mostly on 3 cyls, changed injector no change, coil pack no change, entire motor no change. thn he got the idea to change the injector relay and behold 4 cylinders.
Miles, where is that resistor/relay ? Could you describe it with more details ?
Thanks in advance.

From pin one to 3, 4 or 5. Junk yard part is 1.61 M ohms
My part is 2.04 M ohms...sometimes reads OL!!!
Others: FYI resistor pack...take of plastic cover over ign coil pack. Look straight back. Up against firewall is triangle shaped plate with 1x2 1/2" resistor pack, large conector. Right up top.
Would be intersted in other peoples resistance specs on this resistor too. No info in Haynes, lol.
Edit correction: resistor is not resistor. Called dealer. Its the igniter. Retail new $246!!! The junk yard tossed it in free with the coil pack.
