I had a similar probelm but mine would get really bad at around 2300 RPM and it was just noticable at idle.. My fix was just below the exhaust manifold there is an elbow which is covered by a heat shield. When I observed the shield it wrapped around the bottom of the elbow and was spot welded to the exhaust pipe only at the 4 corners(so it was kinda in the shape of a U) because the rest of it was open, dirt and sand collected in here and caused the noise and vibration that I was hearing/feeling. After observing the area and talking to a GM mechanic I removed the shield completely. Theres nothing there that could burn or any heat sensitive parts for that matter, and it did not cover the top anyway so it wasn't to protect the paint. I hope this helps

I have a 99 ford f150. Sometimes it runs perfect, then out of no where when I try to accelerate it vibrates bad and becomea hesitant. When I came to a stop I switched threw all gears and it seems like it...

This sounds like you might have a bad plug wire or something else in the ignition system is arcing to ground. A quick way to verify this is to run the truck in Park at idle. Next, spray the ignition wires with Windex. You'll notice the truck starting to rough up and might even see the bad wire arcing to ground. A complete tuneup would be recommended in this case.
I hope this helps! :)

Car vibrates noisily especially in idling. RPM gauge stabilizes at less than 500 r,p.m. is it normal

i dont think so that sounds like the idle is down alot. good idle would be around 700 ish.

Getting vibration when car is put into drive. or stopped at a light idling in drive

You might have a cylinder missing, due to no spark, or a fuel issue. If it shakes, and you feel it at the steering wheel, I would get that looked into.

Vibration felt in front floorboard

Yes it can but the dealer would have found it on the test drive if they test drove the vehicle. The only other causes for the vibration I can think of should have been found on inspection as well. Check your bushings and mounts for the sway bar and your tie rod ends as well.
