I then did a tune up with Motocraft spark plugs and wires, oil and filter and air filter. Vibration is still there. The engine only vibrates at idle. It doesn't matter if I am in neutral, park, drive or reverse. The engine vibrates. The second I touch the gas, the vibration is gone. When looking at the engine, I can see it vibrate and when I put my hand on the engine I can feel it vibrate. It has only been doing it for about 6 months and some days are worse than others. I am at a loss on this one.
I have the exact same vibration in my 2008 SES exactly as you describe your vibration -- It only does it at idle, but as long as I am accelerating, it is gone. So weird.
