2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer

Been a great vehicle - no problems. Just hit 113,000 miles and it began idle rough and hesitating during acceleration. Had two engine diagnostics that found no issues. Dealer updated power train software, but didn't address problem. Thinking of having plugs and wires replaced as next step. Suggestions?

Vaccum leak? IAC valve?

If the plugs and wires are original it would be good to have those replaced. Also on that vehicle it's a good idea to have the Mass Air Flow sensor cleaned during the tune up as well.

When I had similar issues with a somewhat older Ford, it was the replacement of distributor cap that solved it. It was over 200k, though. YMMV.

Personally, wires would be the last thing I'd replace.
