View Full Version : Engine vibration

03-07-2011, 10:13 PM
Thanks in advance for any advice:

I have a 2002 Subaru Legacy GT Limited with about 90k on it. I've noticed the engine vibrates a little when I start it in cold weather - no big surprise there - but vibrates A LOT when the engine is still cold and I'm idling with the car in drive.

I've had it tuned up recently and a couple mechanics have said things look good. Any idea what could be going on or what I can do to fix it?

Not a huge issue but annoys the hell out of me!

Possibly check your motor mounts, but if they were going bad you would notice all the time not just during start up

Yup I think scarecrow is right, you have to check your motor mounts, and make a replacement if nothing improves. There are lots of great aftermarket motor mounts (http://www.drivewire.com/part/engine-parts/motor-mount/) that wouldn't cost you much.
