Shuddering when stopped

Hey guys,

I just bought a 1993 prelude SRV with 160,xxx on it. Everything is pretty fine, I got it checked by a mechanic, except for one thing. When the car is stopped and I'm just idling, the car shudders as if I'm trying to let the clutch out with low RPM (and it's about to stall). But the car doesn't stall, and it happens even if it's in neutral. Any ideas why this would be happening?

It's not the idle that's the problem, it's at the right level and it's pretty even. It's what the car DOES when it idles :P

You have to jump the circuit with a paper clip.. Autozone isnt going to do it.
