Check that both speeds of the fan are running. Also see if the ruffness goes away when your at idle if the A/C is off.

X2 for checking the fan, it may not be overheating but when the fan is supposed to kick on the idling does get a little rough.

Check your tork strut adjustments.

A lot easier to check if you have A/C. If not, to check both speeds the wiring harness needs to be taken apart and a ground and 12V has to be attached to the connection to the fan to see if both speeds work. Another way is to just hook up an OBDII scanner which can run all kinds of diagnostics and turn the fan on to see if the computer, relays and fan speeds work.

It's in the how too section in the tech section. Engine will vibrate like a small miss in gear at idle. Might be what your feeling.
