If you don't have to be moving to get the vibration then it has to be either something is not balanced properly (torque converter may be bad, front pulley, engine flywheel cracked) or you have a bad mount, causing the vibration from making the engine or trans contact the car body in a place you can't see.
Hard to pinpoint without feeling it myself. I can say for sure it's not the cam belt, unless there's debris stuck to the inside of the cam gear causing the vibration.

I got Toyota corona 2.0l 1992 model automatic 3s engine and O/D light starts to flash once the vehicle runs at around 80km/h.what could be the problem.I called technician to check on door control unit...

O/d flashing indicates a problem in the transmission. It's like a check engine light for the transmission. Count the pattern and Google it. Some will flash just to say help, some will have a pattern. If it has no pattern take to a kragen/oriley pepboys type or a shop to get a scan.

Gtfour manual transmission

You could, theoretically, weld the centre differential closed so that it acts as a locked unit, however you'd still end up with drive train losses. Might be easier to swap back to your 3S-GE's box...
