01 LX Shaking on idle

Hello.

As you know its feb and its cold up here in maine! but my car recently started having a low idle like it wasnt getting fuel or something when i start it but when i rev it a few times the issue seems to go away, it also shakes really bad while it does that! its not the motor mounts i had them done 2 months ago :) any other possibilities? MAF sensor? fuel filter? spark plugs? wires? i also had the plugs and wires done same time as motor mounts. thanks for your help! focusfanatics is the best!

p.s. it kinda puts and such till i rev it and i also have my flex pipe replaced last month could a loose bolt on that cause something?

Most likely tuneup time. I would look into replacing your plugs, wires and coil.
