Default rough idle

I found my idle problem and hate to say that it was a dumb mistake on my
part, I had # 4&6 plug wires crossed. Although I replaced one wire at a
time, not making excuses, it was a 2nd hand car. I still have a problem
with both cooling fans coming on as soon as the key is turned on. Any help
out there? Thanks!

We've all done dumb stuff like that, no biggie. As far as the cooling
system, it may be something as simple as a fan relay. The system is
designed to operate continuously if there is an open in the control
portion of the circuit (bad relay, blow fuse, etc) so the car wont
overheat.
