WHY IS MY ENGINE VIBRATING AT STOP LIGHT WHEN IN DRIVE?

2002 Kia Spectra • 68,000 miles

I experience a cabin and steering wheel vibration only when at stop light when foot on brake in drive or under load. No vibration in park or neutral. Changed all motor mounts, plugs, wires, timing belt. Please reply with possible causes. Thanks, much appreciated.

When did this problem start? Could it be exhaust related?

The exhaust is fine, just passed emmissions test

The problem has existed since I purchased the car when it had 63000 miles

How could this problem be exhaust related? The exhaust system is fine. Any other reasons why this problem persists?

Pleased describe the exact feel of the vibration. I was thinking it as like a vibrating chair.

No, like a vibrating chair. Lol. It's a rough engine idle which is felt primarily the steering wheel, agian the idle is very smooth in neutral and park. It gets rough when only in drive, reverse, ie, when under load.
