Default What causes my car to shake when in idle? (I need real help!)

When I stop at a light or stop sign, my car vibrates. When i put the car in park or neutral the shaking goes away. The seats and steering wheel vibrates. When I turn the a/c on, it shakes even worse. I cant even lay my head on the headrest due to the annoying shaking. I replaced the fuel injectors, replaced fuel filter, MAF, new spark plugs Bosch Platinum +4 from warn out Hyundai dealership NKGs. I even had the dealership check the shaking out. They said my engine mounts were not broken and were good. They couldnt find anything wrong.

I noticed after installing the new spark plugs, the idle is about 40% better, but its still there. I even changed my stock intake to one of those $9.99 CAI from ebay to try to fix the issue. Shaking still here.

I had two questions:

1. The $9.99 CAI from ebay comes with a blue cone/filter. My question is it worth to replace this cheap cone with a $50 K & N filter from Autozone, will I get better performance? I also notice I wheezing noise coming from that blue cone. Could it be the cheap material on the cone killing air performance?

2. What should i check for the shaking? Im planning just to bring it in to this Tires Plus, since the guy said he could check it out for $12.

Is the idle speed thing screwed to the right strut on top?

What about the cone? Should I get a K and N one?

a real simple cheap solution could be your spark plug wires i use to have some bad idleing problems, and coulnd't figure it out; the plugs were new. so i changed the wires and the problem was fixed.

Ok, I try that suggestion.

Damn I just got my wires factory replaced by the dealership about 5 months ago.

no it is not. the knock sensor is located in the block in a coolant passage. on the strut tower it is the aqcceleration sensor. i lets the ECU know when there is a lot of road vibration so it does not assume it is engine knock and adjust the timing. i guess you can say it is a knock sesnor aid. but it is not a knock sesnor

Is my picture correct?

Is the idle air control the same thing as the ISA or Idle Speed Actuator?
