If it shakes at idle it may be a bad harmonic balancer. If you type your thread out slower and clearer we may be able to help you figure it out.

I would also check your harmonic balancer first. They are known to shit out on people.
Then check your motor mounts. CHeck for wear and tear, or completely broken.
If its a ticking sound, it may be your lifters. Im having that issue right now too.

Like the others have said, seems like a balancer problem. I'd check out the engine and tranny mounts as well. Another thing it could be, if you have been driving around long on a broken tranny or motor mount it could have loosened an exhaust flange and has an exhaust leak.

Mine used to shake at idle, felt like I was in an old muscle car with a big block. I got the balancer and timing chain done and it was a lot smoother afterward.
