Default 3.0 V6 Ranger vibration

Morning,

After my truck warms up and drives for a while, it starts to vibrate in drive & Overdrive. At the stop light it vibrates as well. It goes away when I accelerate. It vibrates sporadically in town and on the highway but usually always vibrates at the stop light.

I have cleaned MAF, new AIC, new O2 sensors(had a code for that, didnt replace the one after the cat back), I have changed spark plugs and wires, new fuel filter, changed engine oil, fuel injector cleaner. I have ruled out any tire or balance issues. most of the changes I did due to they were due. All parts are motorcraft, 139,000+ miles on it so far.

I have no idea what could be the issue with my truck and any feedback would be appreciative.

----------

I forgot to add.. it only vibrates in gear, It doesnt vibrate in Park or Neutral.

Check your motor mounts.

I will take a look at them

----------

Is there anything I should be looking for? I have my haynes manual and it says to look for cracking in rubber and tightness of bolts. Anything else?

Just make sure the bolts are all tight and the rubber looks good, and isn't cracked or broken and missing chunks...Pretty much what the manual said...I know my wifes car needs motor mounts I just have not had time to do them...her car shakes at idle really bad and in gear, but in park like yours is fine...

Ok, so i checked motor mounts, all good. Then drove over to a friends house and explained my problem and he suggested it was the fuel injectors. We unplugged one at a time on the passenger side(easy to get to) and discovered no change in one of them. I replaced it and it works better. However, I think there is one more that isnt working. Its not as easy to get to though. Will update once I check it out.
