vibration at idle?

Hey guys, well I'm not sure if I have a problem or not, but when im in drive or park, just letting the engine idle, there is a vibration that i can feel in my seat and the steering wheel. I just got back from a 2 week trip and cant remember if it was like that before lol. So anyways anybody elses rig do this, its an 07 with only 6 grand on it. My first thought would be injectors but i dont see how they could go out that fast.

Thanks!
Mike

It's definitely not something all of them do because there is zero vibration on my 06. Actually, my Acura with a 1.8 liter 4 cylinder vibrates a lot more than my big old diesel.

is it only when it's cold ? does it smoke at all ?

i'm thinking injector problem, mine does this cold until it warms up. shakes and stutters feels like a gasser with a few plug wires yanked.

yeah it was right in the middle on the stick. I checked it just like the manual said. No oil leaks underneath and never noticed any smoke either. So we will see. I dropped it off today so we will see what the techs say.

what i am refering to has nothing to do with it using oil or being low, if a crankcase on just about any engine is overfull, it will vibrate especially at idle , the extra oil splashes around on the crankshaft causing a constant vibration felt thru the entire vehicle , seen it in several diesel engines when an injector goes bad and is filling the crankcase with fuel
