I have a vibration during idle. I cleaned out my thottle body (which was filthy from the carbon deposits), and my MAF sensor as well. This helped A LOT and the vibration has gotten much less severe, however i'm still feeling some vibration while stopped in drive. I'm wondering if you guys had any ideas as to what it is? My motor mounts and transmission mounts are in good shape, so i'm lost as to where to look. Don't know if this could be related to my last post (transmission fluid). I'd love to hear back with any opinion. Thank you.

Car is a 2006 V6 Automatic Transmission with 118,000 miles on it.

Id seafoam it to see if it smooths out the idle. Here is a video I found that I used a few years back.

Once again, thank you. And damn i'd read a lot about the seafoam treatment but never seen a video i thought it was just a gas tank additive. My question is i put in about 500 miles ago during my last oil change one of those lucas oil fuel injector cleaners in with a full tank. is that going to be an issue while using this? I feel like the lucas oil things are not necessarily the most effective, potentially very diluted? Sorry for the questions just want to learn as much as possible while i'm at is.

That video is great, thank you, I'm going to do the treatment tomorrow.

Heres a good reference thread for the seafoam. seafoam help click here

Also another thing I would do is...disconnect the negative battery connecter for 30 minutes to reset the ecu so it can relearn the idle.
Alright so I did the seafoam treatment today. I put somewhere between a third and half the can in the car the way shown in the video and the rest in the gas tank. Released a lot of smoke in comparison but not as much as i expected. Didn't feel much of a difference afterwards, maybe its a gradual thing because of the gas one? Although I must say i will include this in my regular maintenance.

I will try the battery connector tomorrow morning before work and i'll get back to you on that afterwards. Thanks for the help so far.
