I also spent the time to re-torque all the plenum bolts.
The idle is not low, the idle is actually high; it idles at 875 rpm when the car is up to operating temperature while in Drive with the A/C on. In Neutral, the idle is around 950 rpm. I took the intake tube off to re-torque the valve cover bolts to help slow down the oil leak and I believe I cleaned the throttle body. I didn't clean the MAF sensor because it didn't look dirty. Maybe I should clean it and see if that makes any difference.
I'm surprised that no one suggested an engine mount causing the engine to shake. The passenger side mount has fluid leaking out of it, which I think is what is causing the car to shake.
