I can feel a slight vibration in the steering wheel and some in the seat when idling without the A/C running. With the A/C running the engine actually seems to smooth out.>>>> The a/c kicks the motor to a slightly higher rpm.<<<<

I've read on the forums to check for vacuum leaks, possible clean or replace the IAC and/or TPS. Before I do all that, just wondering if I should expect some vibration from the Duratec 2.0?
Yes, its a 4 cyl & thats the way it is. Your going to get vibes thru the S/W. You should see my wheel vibrate w/ bsd & cams at idle. No big deal.
