Check the front upper mount (right side) it supports all of the engine weight and the rubber will fatige causing metal to metal contact inside the mount, this makes it vibrate bad at idle and causes the dash to rattle.

 Also check the lower trans mount on support frame near left side wheel.

This is assuming the engine is running well and idleing correctly.

That might be an inherent part of the design of the saturn engine, all the 4 cylinders I've driven are that way. I think it has to do with the balance shafts and the way they made the engine. If you can find a friend (or trusted stranger) with a very similar car, ask them if their car does it too.

No it should not be flashing. Get the codes checked or take it to a good shop. Dont go to your local garage where they will just throw parts at it untill they get it rite and you end up with a huge bill.

Engine vibrations are sometimes caused by worn engine mounts. Have yours inspected to see if they are worn and allowing the engine to vibrate excessively.
