09 focus ses engine vibration

I was told that the slant of the engine on my 09 focus ses 140k mile is why it vibrates. The previous owner is a good friend and he has replaced the engine mounts at least once. I already have a second set of mounts (not installed) and it's not ticking or making odd noises. Is this fairly common or should I do a crank case clean with seafoam (always has worked for me) and after treat the oil with engine honey? The oil in it is clean but I'm still a little worried. Not that I'm not never worried when I pick up a new vehicle. Just wondering it's a common thing. Either way I'm still gonna do the other stuff. I just wanna know

Would lean towards the motor mounts, especially the passenger side mount but all 3 can go bad. When were they last replaced? And what exactly is engine honey?

Stp oil treatment. It has the consistency of honey. It makes the oil stick together a little bit better. I have had amazing luck with it. The mounts were replaced 5 ish years ago but they replaced them with non OEM anchor mounts and that bothers me. Another new set of anchor mounts came with the car so I'm going to throw them in but honestly as soon as I have some cash scraped up I'm getting some new OEM ones. Until then I'm gonna put the crappy ones on and get the engine running super smooth. I think the OEM ones are hydraulic? The anchor ones I believe are just rubber

Oh okay it's definitely the mounts then, OEM (at least on the passenger side for sure) are absolutely the best and you're smart to get them as soon as you can.

The slant has absolutely NOTHING to do with an engine shaking whatsoever.

ALL four cylinders shake in some form or another even running perfectly, it is built into them to do so in the basic four cylinder engine design. Can't get away from it, only treat the problem.

Also check the dogbone mount under the car at the transmission. Mine was wore out and would let the engine rock.

Also the videos that show that you have to take the mount off the transmission you don't have to. Just have to finagle it a little and it will go in.

The slant of the motor is cause the psm.....Why would you use or add anything to the oil as you mentioned its not ticking or making odd noises? If you want to do something pass on those chemicals & get a real oem psm & install it properly.....I don't get why you want to add those chemicals to a good running motor or any motor...Fix it properly to begin w/ vs throwing chemicals at it....btw the d-tech motor is a solid lifter motor. Fix the psm & be done.......pass on all that crap..motor honey, ect......

First things first - Don't use oil additives. Ever. Omfg.

Only use genuine Motorcraft hydraulic filled mount for the passenger side. If you use a cheap aftermarket mount it will not last.
