ok i'm a noob. i admit it (search function-exempt). but is the car supposed to vibrate this much at idle? it stays at around 750. >8000 miles already. i'm guessing maybe it's the kind of gasoline i use (87 hess or mobil). the car feels like a freakin' massage tool.

It's a four. They do that, especially big fours like a 2.4 liter. No escape, it's just par for the course.

oh yeah i remember i came across here somewhere where you pointed balance differences between v6's and v8's. but, how is this gonna be in a long term scenario... i hope it won't get worse.

how's your car, does it do the same?

I remember my auto Matrix (also I-4) vibrating way more than 5-speed tC. But that only goes when I'm at a light - neutral in 5-speed, or in drive on auto. Moving auto to neutral would usually get rid of vibration.

Both of them. It won't get worse.
