Can't watch the video b/c of my torrents (now is the only time i can actually run them) But is the shaking and everythign when you're idle? or is it when you're rolling? if it's when you're rolling it's probably your rotors are warped, if it's idle then it could be a number of things.... are the first owner of the car? if so... any mods? If not, did the previous owner say they modded it all and if so what kind of mods? Especially if you're running certain cams, they could have a rough idle in general... If you're whole car shakes just when you rev the engine then i would throw a guess at your engine mounts, but i'll let ray or some else answer that one sense they know more about it than I would....

yeah its when im driving it sounds like that every time i put it in neutral it sounds fine and because it sounded loud in the beginning its because i was inclined. Um i bought it when it had 30k miles and the previous owner did no mods but added a sound system that a month later it died and got it replaced.

Doesn't sound like a mount to me, it would be just a loud hit and it would be when accelerating or just letting off the gas, try with the hood open watch the engine and see how much play it has when you rev it in "neutral" or "park"

Motor mount the vibration is usually there all the time. Neutral, drive still there. Especially notice it when you drive through dips and the car goes up and down. Vibration will go away and come back as the car cycles up and down. The noise sounded almost like when you stick a card in the spoke of a bicycle tire. Seemed to get faster as you reved and went faster. Hard to tell on my phone so I could be wrong. Don't like the fact it goes away when you let of accelerator.

that doesn't sound like a motor mount problem. the only thing to do is to open the hood and hear where the sound is coming from. I would say muffler but do you have an exhaust system?

Well when i have the car on a flat surface it sounds fine and under the hood i hardly hear anything besides a very light click should be the fans and i have the original ford muffler and resonator i had gone to a muffler shop the guy didnt know and said it might be wear an tear. even when i go up hill the noise starts sounding harder.

Are the motor mounts hard to change? What do they run?
