Exclamation Rough Idle....HELP

Hey, Ive been having a rough idle problem for a few months now and i cant figure it out i guess its time to ask for some help. While in driving its fine but when i stop and let it idle it shakes like crazy. Ive already changed the plugs, cleaned the MAF, cleaned the throttle body, all to no avail.

I noticed that the motor mount on the pass. side looks like its almost "leaking" It looks like some kind of oil came out of it.... Are these motor mounts more than i thought, I just figured they are metal with rubber in it. The rubber dont look like its messed up i guess......anyone have any ideas?

Is your tach jumping around? Or just vibrations in the car at idle? Is the engine shaking?

Need more info before you get any intelligent suggestions.

The mounts aren't filled with anything. Your vibrations could be caused by a variety of things. You seem to have checked the most common parts, don't forget to check the motor mounts for tightness and wear. Also, are you staged? I think there was a TSB about rough idle and they reflashed the PCM.

the tach is siting at a steady 800ish at idle so its not really fluctuating
Im not staged at all, i used to have a typhoon and had problems with the filter oil getting on a sensor in the S/C but that went away after i put the stock intake on and cleared the codes,

this may be a stupid question but are the coil packs numbered for each cylinder i know on most cars they arent but i didnt even check when i changed my plugs last....

And yes his avatar is quite ballin

And of course no codes or i woulda said that al

It's difficult to put the wrong coil packs on since you would run in to one or two that won't reach.

^^I agree with him. The coilpacks are universal as in you can use one for the other, so long as you change the wiring. But, it's nearly impossible to get them switched around and on the wrong cylinder.

OK, now that we know you aren't staged. Does it only do that when the A/C is on? Or is it when it's off too?

i know i didnt get the wires to the coil packs messed up, i did unhook the coils from the wires but like yall said its impossible to make them reach the wrong cylinder.

Yeah it does it all the time while its idling. if i give it any gas at all it smooths out instantly and it drives smooth the whole time....
