2003 zts motor vibrates
 
please help me figure'it out, i'm sick of making trips to the shop. they say is nothing wrong ... but the car vibrates bad!

it happens especially in the morning (after the car rested overnight) and it goes away sometimes. So it is hard to show the car shop what exactly is.

they changed 1 support, central under the engine, but is still vibrates bad.

when the car is idle, the wheel is vibrates really bad, the mirrors move so bad i can't even see what is behind me, the keys jingle ... all this with the car stoped and idle.

if i accelerate, the vibration goes away.

Please help ! [:)]

It is the engine mounts
The passenger side is very susceptible to going out
Next the dog bone
Then the transmission

There is controversy whether to go with OEM or third party
Seems the DEA brand is better than the Anchor brand
Cannot go wrong with OEM except for price

You need a new shop
