Default 2003 Accord - annoying slow idle - any ideas?

80,000 miles, 3.0 V6, nothing but oil changes done. Has done this since 40,000 miles. After warming up and stopping to park (in neutral as it is a manual trans) it idles just slowly enough to kind of "shimmy". It has never stalled. I am not very worried about this, but if it's something common to this car/engine it's worth knowing about huh....

It's probably idleing fine. More likely it could be a motor mount.

How does it idle with the AC on? If you truely had a problem with your IAC (idle air controller) that it barely idles, then the car would stall out with the ac on.
