When was the last time you gave it a major tune-up-Tune-up is not only replacing plugs and wires. It means the whole enchaladas.

I'll bet you still got the original oxygen sensors, there's 2 them on the exhaust pipe one before the Cat and one after. Also PCV valve.

Now the hard way under your seat is the IACV and EGR valves -you can open it up and give a good Mr. Clean. And also you can run an injection cleaner thru the system.

BTW did you use OEM parts for the above.

I did not know oxygen sensors and pvc valve could make the sterring wheel vibrate. Are you sure I need to change these, cause oxygen sensor run about $180 a piece. I still think it has something to do with the brake system. Cause when i'm at idle and set the gear to Park, the sterring wheel does not shake at all. But when i'm at idle and set the shift to Drive and step on the brake, it starts shaking.

Now we're getting somewhere-okay inspect and test the vacuum hose/check valve and brake booster for vacuum leak.

You can do this-plug the vacuum hose going to the brake booster and see what happens.

Might also want to check out the EGR for carbon-sometimes a problem with it will not show at high rpm but when its at idle and its cracked a little it will cause an erratic idle that will do the shaking of the steering wheel-

Speaking of EGR. My check Engine light came up on and off for a while now. The code said EGR Valve. When the light came up I usually clean the hose with compressed air blower ( a trick that a mechanic showed me). YOu can the see dust came out from the muffler. I was stuck. Then I cleared the code. It's been 2 months. Now the Check engine came up again. Do you think I should clean the hose again or should I change the EGR valve.
