Unhappy Shaking like crazy when Idle starts fine

I know there is a similar post but it isn't exactly like the problem I'm having. My PT is a 2005 turbo it starts fine drives fine no engine light or anything it has 106k miles new battery...just replaced catalytic converter

Anyway it shakes like crazy when idling in drive but not in reverse and not in park. It makes a sort of rattling noise.

Wondering if it needs a tune up or something? Possibly a worse problem..?

Is it all the time or just certain types of weather, have you noticed?

Have you done anything yourself to try and fix it, like change the plugs and wires?

it does it all the time no matter what, it's starting to shake even more violently today it's like being on top of a washing machine during spin cycle. It's crazy.

Could be as simple as a broken motor mount. Have you had them checked?
