Weird noise? Should I get it checked out?

My car has been making a weird noise lately when im stopped, say at a stoplight or in the drive thru at McDonalds. Like, it'll sound something like this: hmmmmmmmmmmm (being the normal engine running) then a spontaneous hmm hmm hmm hmm. Which shakes the car slightly, kinda like a cell phone vibrator. Is that normal? I'll try and record a video of it sitting in my garage today and post it to better explain the situation.

Re: Weird noise? Should I get it checked out?

while it's doing this '' hmmmm hmmm hmmm '' are you using any electric motors ?

ie : power windows, sunroof, heater, well you get it !

it is in fact your idle getting lower

If you have not done a PS delete, it will idle down when you turn your wheel too.

Re: Weird noise? Should I get it checked out?

Idle will drop via anything from your fan kicking in to you rolling your window due to a drop in immediate available voltage. Vibrating occurs due to the separation of combustion strokes causing to much vibration for your harmonic balancer (balancer shafts) to equal out. Vibration is felt due to your engine mount bushings breaking down and becoming to soft, or replaced with bushings to stiff to absorb movement being transfered to your chassis. Very common in older vehicles and nothing that will compromise your vehicles well being.
