Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2005 Dodge Caravan SXT : I get excessive vibration when idling in DRIVE
below 600rpm ..IE stopped at stop lights/signs   but the vibration stops when
put in neutral or if shes cold and idling high at around 700rpm. Never any
vibration in Neutral, only in drive. And only after the engine has warmed up so
that shes idling at 600rpm in drive.

(correciton.. it should say 'at or below 650 rpm'.. 700 no problem.. 600..shakes the steering wheel and rattles things in the back of the van.. but the RPM never drops below 600 )
