Hello. This sounds like you have a lean running engine. This can be from carbon build up on the valves and dirty or clogged injectors. Have the combustion chamber and injectors cleaned. Then see if the engine runs better. If you need help with this repair, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose the misfire and rough idle.
