My 1996 3.8l shakes when in idle in drive.

It doesn't shake when in park or driving just when I come to a stop and the RPMS are low.

What could this be ?

Car shakes so back when trying to park it sometimes dies

Last tune up? How old are the plug wires? Have you checked for vacuum leaks? How about the IAC valve? Any codes tossed?

If all the electronics under the hood are original, pretty much everything is suspect. Vacuum leaks, plugs/wires, TPS, IAC, MAF...
