Does it sound and smell funny? Does it smoke at all? My '98 had a blown plenum gasket and all the oil I was burning eventually clogged the cat and it ran like crap. It did throw a code the idle was way rough and it would only smooth out at 2000RPMs and above.

I had a Jeep that would shake bad at curtain rpms. Turned out to be the clutch pads in the trans were dirty. Or so that was how it was explained to me. Did a trans fluid change ran it for 500 miles and then did it again (changing the filter both times) and it fixed the problem. I didnt have an idle problem with it so might not be the same thing.
