225000 miles.. sounds like it has been a good vehicle. The first thing that comes to mind is that the fins inside of the torque converter may just plain be worn excessively. You said that when you shifted to neutral it ceased. Neutral... no torque demand. If it does it in FWD and REVERSE then I am thinking it very well can be a torque converter problem. If you want a few more inputs then just don't rate the post and a few more Experts will probably chime in. When you have enough input rate one of the posts so you can stop getting FixYa Expert email replies on possible solutions. Wish ya the best Darren.

I would suggest try changing the spark plugs and the spark plug wires and also check your airfilter,change if dirty.

Vibration through the car Transmission-motor Linkage?

Check to make sure both headlights are tight,,,when it rattles at idle go feel the headlight and hold it and see if the noise and vibration goes away,sometimes the headlight has too much clearance and causes a massive vibration,,if thats not it try...loosening all the motor mounts and rock the car back and forth and them retighten them,it reseetles the mounts and sometimes fixes the issue,,also check the lower engine and trans mounts for wear.
