Like the title says, when ever I put the car in neutral, which is never, I get this slight vibration/shake. What could that mean? I tested out the other gears and its only in neutral.

Engine mount?
I got my front and side engine mount replaced already about 2 months ago. How come it doesn't do it when I put it into any other gear tho? I am hoping its not a transmission problem. My engine mounts are under warranty though, so if that is the problem, I can get it taken care of.

Might be a dirty throttle body/ IAC valve (if older model with a cable throttle). When you put the car in neutral, the throttle body butterfly (or IAC valve) closes a little because there's less load on the engine. If it's dirty there could be enough restriction to make the idle a little rough, which is what you're feeling. Mine was like that when I got it (with 145000 miles on it) and cleaning the throttle body took care of it.

Hope this helps.
