If you have the 4 cylinder with a rough idle put it in sport mode, take it for a drive and put foot in it. Let the car see the redline a few time and it may clear up.

Welcome to the forum.
When did you start to see rough idling with your TLX? What year and how many miles?
What made you think of "putting your foot" in it to clear up the idling?

It reminds me of what I heard back in the 50's and 60', about city driving.

The old "shade tree mechanic" tale was that never getting the RPM's up over X because of only city driving allowed for a build up of carbon and taking it out and running up to high RPM's would "blow it out."

Of course no one ever heard about the idiots who blew up their engine.
