Noise and vibration when put in drive

(2003 Dodge Caravan)
in Plano, TX on March 09, 2011
I have a 2003 Dodge Caravan that when it's put in drive it makes a noise and vibrates....any clue what would cause this? The noise and vibration only last a couple seconds and then it drives and shifts fine.

If still sitting still when happens I suspect a motor mount. Idle air valve could cause vibes but never heard of noise from that. Would help to know if moving and what does noise sound like?

yes, van is sitting still when making the noise. It only does it for a brief second when you put the van in drive. There is a slight almost like a sucking noise when you put it in reverse also. This is going to sound stupid but if you say the letter V really slow it's sort of that sound. sorry couldn't think of anything better to use as an example lol Along with that sound is a tiny vibration but again it only last for a second then it's gone. What ever it is it's not affecting the performance of the van.
