The instrument panel and switch backlighting may fail due to a faulty dimmer control module. A failed module will require replacement.
The upper intake manifold gasket and/or a PCV vacuum lines/hoses can develop vacuum leaks with age. This type of leak can result in a higher that normal or rough idle.
