Plugs & wires are common cause. Especially after having the fuel rail recall done.

The '96 was included in the fuel rail recall. Has that been done? If so, it will have a stainless steel fuel rail. If not, it will have a black plastic rail.

yes it has the stainless steel fuel rail, there was no leak... at all i pulled it out and stuff to see if it was dirty and stuff it wasn't after i did that the idle isnt as bad but still really rough...

Leave the injectors attached to the rail. Lift the rail and injectors as one unit.
