Rough idle

So I know I have a vacuum leak and one of my motor mounts is shit but do guys know of any other common 03 zx3 problems that cause stuff like this?? Just want to make sure I know exactly whats going on it also died out a couple of times as soon as it turned over and it’s not the battery or starter because it goes through the entire start up before dying.

You are wasting your time until the vacuum leak is fixed as THAT will do it. Silly to look for other causes if you have one staring you in the face.

Motor mounts are probably shot and the idle could be changing because you have the A/C on and the compressor is kicking on and off. You will be shocked at what the motor mounts will do for performance and comfort.

'...so change the purge valve first? '

(shaking head sadly) You are very far from knowing exactly what's going on as you cannot even communicate effectively.

Do yourself a favor and take the car in to be worked on, you don't have enough of an organizational mind to pull it off based on your presented train of thought.
