Yeah this wagon has the SPI. Too bad it wasn't the Zetec, then I wouldn't have had to spent the money on a head replacement last year. At least I don't have to worry about the valve seat problem now.

changed out the tranny mount and the passenger side motor mount. my compressor died and I couldn't get enough leverage to do the bottom mount. going to get it on a lift this week and change it out. Shutter is still there at low RPM and idle.

I had the exact same problem with my car and I have 110k miles. Like you said it will increase as you touch the throttle but then go away after that. But noticeable vibrations before you started. I cleaned my EGR valve (noticed it had no gasket so replaced that) and also replaced the DPFE (don't know if that had anything to do with the rumbling at idle but the sensor was failing) and it seemed to fix the problem pretty good. Now it is nice and smooth with no vibrations.

interesting....I will have to give that a try. I had just gotten the bottom mount swapped last night and then the gas tank straps broke off so I am getting that fixed tonight and I'll see if the problem persists. If so I'll give the above a try.

Sweet!! Glad it worked. Since you replaced all three you should have another 80k plus before you repeat it. It's one of those repairs that makes a dramatic difference.
