ROUGH idling problem HELP!

Ok I have a 95 YJ and I had a blown top radiator hose 4 days ago. It blew all the coolant out and I was left smoking on the side of the road, but I replaced it and everything but now it idles awful! Any idea what might it may be ?

My temperature gauge is broken. This is a new project. Haven't identified all the kinks but no it doesn't backfire and while I'm driving it sounds fine it's just when I let off the accelerator.

If it was running fne before the burst hose, My money is on a vaccuum leak somewhere underhood.

Perhaps a second hose got pushed off when the coolant hose ruptured? Toss a vac. Gauge on and see what it reads at idle, report back and we can continue to troubleshoot.
