Default Rough idle

I have a 05 pt with 135,000 miles on it. I'm getting a rough idle no accessories on. But when I give it gas it goes away. I know it's been discussed before but everything I found was low miles. I was wondering if its different because the higher miles and other stuff to look at. Let me know what you guy think. I jus replaced the plugs and wires probably around early may.

my first guess would be a vacuum problem. try spraying something like brake cleaner around the areas such as intake manifold and vacuum lines.

My guess is Idle Air Control sensor or valve :-D only is used when the car is idling, so it points in the right direction :-D
