I bought my focus used about 2 years ago, Its been a great car. Recently however I've been noticing a strong vibration whenever I sit in park neutral or if I just idle, as soon as I accelerate or even coast it is not noticeable. It's worse if the engine is cold, but it does not get much better if the engine is warm. I have not noticed any sort of drop in mileage or performance. Other friends who have "small" cars have had similar problems. Ive heard some say that engine mounts are commonly the suspect. Just looking for some thoughts on if that might be the problem and if there are ways I can determine what is the cause is. I'm used to doing some basic mechanic work at home on my own. I have a vide variety of tools and equipment. I would prefer to do this on my own if its a possibility.
