Rough idle

My 86 420 idles really rough. It is also intermittent. Sometimes it will be smooth, and sometimes not. I tried fuel injector cleaner gas additive and it seemed to help at first, but then it would go right back to idling rough even when I am still using the stuff. Is this an ignition problem? A fuel system problem? Thanks for any help.

Dad bought it new, now I own it.

Has this car been jump started lately?? if so check the OVP relay. Also check for vacuum leaks. Try these two and report back
