It doesn't do it very often and it only does when the car has been sitting for about 24hrs
or so. When the car is up to temp. It sounds like the rpm moving around but rpm gauge is stable. once you get the car above 1500 rpm it fine about 30-60ish range. Denengage overdrive doesn't seem to matter. I am thinking maybe it misfiring. The wires are rather old. It is not though any codes.

Most likely it is wires/plugs as you believe. I'd start off there.
