This can be because a spark plug or a plug wire is at fault, If it has not had the spark plugs replaced now is the time. No biggie, just a regular tune up and plug wires replaced. If problem persists then There is also a possibility of an engine mount worn, or a CV joint in the front axle but the spark plugs would be the first thing we looked at if it were in my shop.
