Vibration

When I start my 2001 Focus SE in the morning the rpms are about 1200, but after a few minutes it idles down to around 600. When I put it into gear and start driving I get a vibration. Even at a stop sign it vibrates ungodly. What could be making it vibrate like that.

If it's not bucking and idleing oddly, or bogging, then it's probably a motor mount that's gone bad... most likely the passenger side mount.

I second the mount diagnosis.
Buy the Ford OEM, at least for the passenger side.

I am on board with the rest of these guys. Mine just recently had the same problem. Passenger side motor mount was junk. I replaced it and its nice and quite in the passenger compartment again (as quite as it can be with a FSWERKS Race exhaust...)
