What the cause may be and how to fix it
Expert:  Steve replied 2 years ago.

I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.

if the vehicle vibrates only or mostly when stopped, the cause is usually a failed engine mount, the fix being to replace the bad mount

other possible causes would be an intake air leak, failed crankcase ventilation system, faulty idle valve or old plugs/coils.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
