frown 93 taurus 3.8 running rough

I have a 93 ford taurus with a 3.8 in it, its got about 110,000 miles. The other day it just started idling rough, and now it also is running rough like a cylinder is not firing, i just replaced the plugs and wires like 5000 miles ago and just replaced the cap and rotor also. Anyone know what the problem could be or i how i could possibly find out the problem. thanks

Possibly a clogged injector?

Clogged injector?
Fuel filter(?)
fuel pump not pumping enough gas down the lines?
Connection to the Dizzy came loose?
Plug wire came loose on plug?
IAC valve needs cleaning?
Vacume tube loose on EGR valve?
