loping idle is a symptom of plug wires.

the car doesnt miss fire at all tho.

They usually don't at higher RPMS.

the car has a 2.4 liter engine so would it be the electronics under the cover on top of the engine since it doesnt have plug wires??? thanks

You'll have to test each coil plug for resistance. I sent you instructions in a message.
