Hi Jamesod,

How many engine mount did you replace?
Is the front engine mount correctly adjusted?
What is the idling speed?

Thanks for the reply,

I replaced the front and back mounts and I do not know what you mean by idling speed. The vibration starts immediately you engage the drive gear, even without moving the car.

There are 2 more mounts at left and right of vehicle and both are major mounting points.

If they are bad, replacing the front and rear mounts would bnot be sufficient to eliminate vibrations. You would most probably be unable to adjust the front mount to sit freely.

I would suggest getting a look at them.

Idling speed is the engine rpm when vehicle is not moving and accelerator is not applied.

Thanks so much,

I have replaced the front and the back, plus one of the side ones. I wll ask the Techician to check the other side and will get back.

Once more, many thanks.

You are welcomed.

The front engine mount is controlled by the PCM and activated by a solenoid. Ensure the solenoid vacumn hoses are correctly installed.

The problem is likely caused by the rear mounts as the vibration occurs while engeaged in forward gears.

Check the engine mount and bracket positions. Btw were the parts used New, Used or Aftermarket?
