Find your EGR valve & try disconnecting the vacuum & or wires to it temporarily and see if it changes anything. Be sure if it has a vacuum line, you plug the line with something when you remove it.

Started in cold weather yesterday. Ran real rough, almost like a motor mount bad. Fan turns by itself when turned with your hand.

If it only happens in cold weather, check your intake manifold bolts for tightness. #5 & #6 by the firewall are easiest to check. Some people will find these not even hand tight = rough running car.

However, if (when cold) your car is vibrating at idle IN GEAR and stopped, this would be a motor mount on Envoys and Trailblazer, very common.

Fan shouldn't turn by itself, you may have a bad fan clutch.

1988 safari 4.3 gmc. motor runs well in idle. on traffic lights and stops it starts to stutter

If it Idles well in park and neutral but shutters when you put it into gear then I would say the trans. torque converter is staying locked.You may want to try and flush the trans,replace filter and fluid.

The car vibrates when it idles. It vibrates so

sounds like it has a bad motor mount, once the rubber wears out, it is metal to metal and there is nothing to coushin the vibrations from the engine.

My 1998 chevy truck 1500 vibrates so bad when i stop or when idle

You left out a lot of needed information but I will try to help out.
You can pull the spark plug wires off one by one while the engine is running to see if you have one or more cylinders are not firing. Depending on how long it has been I would do a tune-up first, replace spark plugs and wires, filters, fluids etc.
With that done and if all cylinders are firing pull the transmission dip stick and look at the fluid, I am assuming you have an automatic tranny. The fluid should be a light red, if it is brownish and has a burnt smell then you could have a problem with the clutches inside your transmission which can cause this same problem.
Good Luck.

1988 GMC w/ fuel injectio

My 1988 GMC jimmy with V-8 and automatic transmission w/ over drive would buck and **** at low speeds. The problem was identified by a FixYa guy as a transmission problem and suggested I try adding a Lucas product transmission additive at about $4. I did that and I am amazed that the old truck runs smooth, even idles better and does not stall when I go to reverse.
