Toyota corolla vibration problems

Asked by Jan 31, 2017 at 10:23 PM about the 2010 Toyota Corolla LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a Toyota corolla 2010 w/ 53k miles.
When I'm at a red light or just stopped when gear is
in Drive my car starts vibrating and shaking
aggressively, but ONLY when the car is fully
warmed up and when it reaches at 550-600 RPM. It
shakes when in reverse as well. No shake/vibration
at park.
Also!
When it reaches night time and my car headlights
turn on and I'm idle at drive gear, my rpm increases
to 700 and the vibration/shaking stops!
WTF!! I know!

I VE TRIED EVERYTHING!
THIS IS WHAT I VE DONE:

Changed the front/rear motor mounts
Changed brake pads and rotors
Cleaned the throttle body and intake hose
I ve poured Seafoam into my gasoline to clean any
gum out
I ve had my car sent to the mechanic MANY TIMES
and nothing!!
Please help!

Two things that I can think of is change out the temperature sending unit, it can be bad and not even know it. This tells the computer how to adjust all other sensors that control your air/fuel mixture. One other thing would be the Mass Air Flow Sensor, this affects the engine idle as well.
