When I first bout my old 1988 ranger about a year ago, it idled and ran rough. Once I got home I popped the hood and the first thing which stood out to me where the vacuum lines were routed incorrectly. Once I rerouted them the proper way the motor ran nice and smooth at both idle and highway speeds.

Basically, it wouldn't hurt to check your vacuum lines for any tears, cracks, or bad connections. Hope this helps!
