car isn't running right..

So I noticed this a few days ago and now that I noticed it, it seems to be happening all the time. From when I start up the car even when driving it. Sometimes it idles rough but then when warms up it stops, but when coming to a stop and back down to idle it is erratic. The main problem is it seems like it's skipping/misfiring. I have pulled the battery off and let the system reset it didn't help, also hooked up the tuner to see if any codes = none and no dash lights are on. When driving the car usually between 2nd-5th gear not all the time but occasionally it feels like its misfiring and the car feels like it loses power/hiccups and keeps going. I have no idea what to check, I know it could be O2 sensors, plugs, coils.. the list goes on, can anyone point me in the right direction?
