Idle Shaking Question

Hello,

Starting about a month ago, every time I left from work, the car would shake when idle... I thought it was bad fuel, etc, so ignored it. Then about a week ago, going to work, I went into lower gear driving, and got "Service Engine Soon" light and the car started to shake. My appt, dealer replaced 4 coils and 4 spark plugs due to a misfire. As soon as I leave the dealer, the car shakes slightly at idle for a very short period and then goes away. Sounds like more coils bad? Did they miss something?

Thanks!

Hmm, I see you're from long island too, and as you know its been pretty cold here, for me my car vibrates in idle until it gets warmed up, then its fine, however I doubt its the same problem if you get the service engine. Does it go away after a while?

Did they check the fuel injectors?
