ldle running up and down

roar noise in my front right tire

We just replaced the mass flow air sensor and the purge flow solenoid in our 94 explorer. Before changing the mass flow air sensor the truck would run with it unpluged, but plugged in it skipped and spuddered real bad. The purge solenoid was broken on one of the vaccum hose ends, so that was replaced. It is still running rough with these changes. Not near as bad but still rough. Any suggestions?
