xr6t ute 03 190xxx with a rough idel, sometimes it goes to stall then picks up and at the lights it idels low and causes the ute to "shake" as such.

Ideas?

Leaking intake manifold gasket perhaps? Spray some WD40 along the gasket.

I should have mentioned that the engine needs to be idling while you spray the WD40. When you spray it on the leak (use the red straw), the idle will smooth out. If, of course, that's the problem.
