Buick 03 V6 3800 45,000 miles, when in Idle a slight shake is noticeable to me then as soon as I put it in drive its smooth as ever,
what can I do to get the best smoothest Idle when not in gear?

I wouldn't worry about the slight imbalance (rough idle out of gear). It's normal for that engine under no load.. It's designed to be smooth in gear. Normal usage is to leave the trans in a gear. The only reason to have the car out of gear is because you just started it up or your just getting ready to turn it off.
