The RPM of the engine may be too high, idle is too high. Check for vacuum leaks.

It could be as simple as a motor mount bec i had same problem, it could be bec my wife does this backing out of a drive way and not stopping all the way before switching gear i try the cheapist then go from there and if its not those just hope it and your transmission slammin in gear. Good luck
