sounds to me like you probably have a bad o2 sensor, take it to an autozone near you and they will run a diagnosticon it for you and don't worry its free that's right no charge for this test.

i have had this problem before also, it could be that one of the spark plugs is roasted. test your spark plugs. one way to find out if it is the spark plug is to see if the car/engine vibrates when in neutral.

Your 1988 Chevy v6 auto has a vibration at idle and it becomes worse when placed in gear what is the problem?

For starters I would check out the vibration damper on the front of the engine. With the engine not running look at the rubber insulator between the center hub and the outer ring of the damper. If portions of the rubber are missing it can allow for vibration. Look at it while the engine is running, if it is wobbling around that could be the problem.
