Vibrations when idling

When the car idles, the driver seat, foot rest and steering wheel (only sometimes) vibrate. The vibrations feel almost like those from a cell phone or pager but not quite that intense...about half as intense

No vibrations when driving

The vibrations go away sometimes but are ther about 80% of time.

Any ideas?

Are you experiencing any abnormal noises from the engine bay when this happens?
