2013 v6 making weird vibration when stopped sometimes
 
every so often when i am stopped at a light my car will make a weird hum or vibration. I would say it happens once a week. Today it happened 3 times. Has anyone else expirenced anything like this?

It may possibly be your electric rad cooling fan, when this fan turns on at idle can feel some very minor vibration and noise, if yours is faulty or has debris on it, could be out of balance and would be very noisy and a lot of vibration,
just a thought.

Mine used to do this. I ignored it until I got the Cylinder 2 misfire. After having that fixed (head replaced) and new spark plugs at 45K miles, it is a lot better. It shakes a bit sometimes but you can barely notice it.

I had an explorer that did this. It got worse and worse until whenever I was parked with the engine on or at a stoplight it vibrated like hell, it would vibrate a water bottle like that scene in Jurassic Park haha. I believe it was a crankshaft dampener that they had to replace, it was like a 1 day fix...but its been a while since the repair so I'm running off a rusty memory tho...

Head failure in the V-6 has this symptom, watch for a CEL. Otherwise try a good fuel system cleaner.
