Bought this little car off of craigslist with 80k miles and the history is that it's been sitting. It idles high in park and low and sputtering in drive. The brakes were clamped together as well, so we drove it all the way home and the rotors were glowing red. It runs but its rough. I feel like an idiot, any advice would be awesome as to what I should do first. I'm trying to diagnosed this myself. I can't afford to have someone look at it but my time is free.

We replaced the brakes, now it's just idling issues. The acceleration is kind of boggy but it drives. Thank you! >_<

Check to make sure the spark plugs aren't fouled. My bet is that they're original and at 23 years old, will likely need to be replaced.
