it might be a broken motor mount. there are two mounts located towards the bottom of the left and right side of the engine make sure you are getting spark to all cylinders. (check for Misfiring)

What causes a 1991 Chevy Blazer to shake when stopped at a stop sign?

Im not familiar with this car but it is likely to do with the engine wobbling due to lower than usual idle speed of the engine or a misfiring cylinder. Also if this vehicle has auto transmission and air-con are factors to be considered. For example, if this has auto transmission and it is kept in "D" whilst stationary, there will be load on the engine, which at idle speed can mean that the engine slows to a point where it "wobbles" with every piston stroke almost. The same will apply if air con is used when idling. If there is a misfire on any of the cylinders this can often be accompanied by a loss of power.

Because it's not yet "dead". An engine is designed to turn at a minimum amount of RPMs under that level the engine is not balanced and shakes.
