I could guess a few things, but I might not be right. If you are looking at buying an older MB, then at a minimum I would have a local independent MB shop look it over for you before purchase. The rough idle might be something simple or rather costly. Hard for us to know without inspection it. Piece of mind brother. Good Luck!
