When does it start vibrating as soon as you start driving or after a certain speed or when brakes are applied ?

It vibrates when I start the ignition and left it to truckle or when ever I come to a halt at the stoplight. The vibration can even be seen in the wheel if I start it and left it to truckle. when I open the bonnet the engine vibrate more than normal for a 3 cylinder engine.

Oh ok so the engine is vibrating. When was the last time you had a tuneup.

I have never had one done before, its the first the car have ever giving me problem before. The problem started after I bought gas at a gas station (bad gas), the government called it, but because I use cash to purchase it and got no receipt hence I have no claims. The car were not starting and had to be jump start, I had the injectors cleaned and replace the left engine mount and empty the gas tank and filled it back with different petrol (clean gas from different gas station). but the vibration persist.

That bad gas may have fouled out one of the spark plugs only thing you can do is replace plugs. You can try adding some octane booster to gas tank and see if that helps.

I had the spark plug change, but I can try the octane booster and see what happen afterwards.
