Alright thanks. I'd think it would be typical for a car to shake even with new motor mounts when its cold and the engine isn't warmed up, especially on smaller cars, like sedans.

Steering Wheel Vibration

I just installed the passenger motor mount under the coolant tank and my car seems to be very quiet and not vibrate much anymore when its warmed up, but its still violently shakes when its cold, is this normal on a 2003 Ford Focus SE Sedan?


P.S. It shakes my car violently while in park with my steering wheel and drivers side mirror when its cold. Do you think its the transmission motor mount?
