Idling rough?? Or maybe not?

Hi Guys,

I'm totally new to cars, and I just bought a EL XR6. When it idles, it sorta shakes the car a bit. I don't mean SHAKES just if you sit still you can feel the car vibrating a bit. Is this normal or is it idling rough?


Thanks in advance.

its the power of the I6 mate! haha no seriously maybe its just due for its service, replace dizzy cap, rotor, leads, plugs, fuel filter, oil change, adjust timing and base idle etc
Should see it right

Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted

Its only slight. You can notice the gearknob (manual) vibrating a bit.
