Excessive vibration at a stop and idling and not when moving is a clear indication that your motor mount/mounts have failed. Replace both if one is bad and check the trans mount as well.

Just a second opinion, As always Tom, good call. Your 1994 DX has a 1.8Liter 7A FE, you need to know that to order the mounts. If you have it done at a shop or dealer demand the old mounts back to prove they actually did replace all of them and not put only on one
