Default 2005 PT cruiser idle problem

I have a 2005 limited edition PT cruiser. I have had problems with the car shaking while in idle and has stalled a couple of times. When the problem first arose, I took the car in and got brand new plugs and wires. This did not fix the problem. A few weeks later, I replaced the coil pack and it did not fix the problem. The car has approx 84,000 miles on it. The vibrating goes away when the car is not in idle; however, the problem has gotten progressively more frequent. Any other ideas? Oh, when I take the car to get diagnosed, it does not run a code. Thanks for the help!

Is the A/C running when it's doing all that shaking? If so, does it stop shaking when you turn the A/C off?

It shakes when the AC is off and it shakes when the AC is on. In fact, my AC does not work well when the car shakes.

Is the fan running. Lots of problems with the radiator fan burning out on one speed or the other and that will cause the engine to shake when it get overheated. When you get going, the fan isn't needed as there's air flowing in through the radiator but when yo slow down or go to idle, the air flow stops and the fans needed to keep things cool.
