Valves? What valves. There are solenoids that open and close to redirect the hydraulic fluid. What's the vibration from when you're sitting still? Does it still vibrate when you put the car in park or neutral?

I would check for broken/weak engine mounts. These are fairly common causes of the symptoms you mention. One way to check is to lift the engine slightly with a floor jack and pad under the engine. If the vibration improves mounts fairly are likely.
