Bad motor / tranny mounts,the rubber in them gets soft and cracks,breaks loose from housing,causing this problem.if it is showing a SES light,remove the IAC valve and clean with carb cleaner,is located on throttle body,is round with a plug in.

Check the vacuum line down by the exhaust. There may be a hole in the line. If the line looses vacuum, the engine will not run smoothly.
