perhaps the transmission or motor mounts are defective and separating now~ jack the motor and transmission with a floorjack...a defective mount will show the separation~

exact same thing happened to me, the alternator is going out it cranks right up in neutral without any problems also.

would check the black wire connection to the fender/chassis also the connection to the engine block...so grounding of the dash and also the blower motor and all grounded auxiliary stuff, like flashers, domelight and DRL's ...headlights too, with a NEW battery, you can inspect the connections of your grounding~ batteries will last about 7 years before they will stop accepting a recharge~
