Default problem with 4eat. need your help!

2002 wrx wagon 4eat with around 75,000 miles, car is completely stock.

when im at a stop light, i feel a vibration comming from under the car. i shift into neutral and the vibration goes away, i shift back into D and the vibration returns . while driving, the car shifts smoothly with no problems. i only feel the vibration while im at a complete stop and goes away once i step on the gas pedal. i noticed that while the car is at idle and i let off the brake, my car barely moves. i also noticed that there is a buzzing sound comming from under the car when the car is in gear or reverse and goes away if i shift into neutral. anyone know or have an idea of whats going on? thanks!

I wonder if it could be something with the torque converter or even the valvebody? About where do you hear the buzzing and feel the viberation?

How loud / strong of a vibration?
Is this new?
I wouldn't worry if it's just at idle and not rattling your teeth.
The reason it goes away in neutral is because your engine isn't under load, so its resonance point has changed.
If it's shifting smoothly through the gears, I don't think I'd worry about the transmission. I'd look more for a loose / rattling piece of the exhaust system.
