Check for vacume leak,and intake gasket leaks all so.

Also check that the timing belt isn't off a tooth, was the belt recently replaced or is it beyond recommended replacement mileage, if so it could be stretched causing a fluctuation in the timing, ie rough idle.

Timing belt was replaced 2 years ago, it has maybe 38k on it right now. I have looked for vacuum leaks and not found any as of yet.

You can take carb cleaner with car running and spray around to find vacume leak,s.
