Your description sounds like the engine is misfiring. If one or more cylinders are not functioning the VSA and check engine light will come on. The imbalance caused by the misfire creates the vibration. If the check engine light is flashing now or does later on it's best to avoid driving it. Flashing means the catalytic converter could become damaged. To know for sure you will need to have the codes scanned. Most auto parts stores will do this for free. It can be a bad spark plug(s)($200) or ignition coil(&$200). There are just too many possible causes to give an exact answer. If you can get me thew code(s) I can give you a more exact answer.

Thank you,
