In my case, My 97 1/2 year 2.4 L Plymouth Breeze engine mounts were loose and the lower engine/transmission support bracket was bent and was transfering vibrations up the steering column (really annoying). Dealership replaced mounts and support to correct this issue.

AnswerI have a 96 that does the same thing had it to the dealer and they checked it out and had no answer so if any one does please email me at ebugsbill@comcast.net Thanks AnswerANSWER

If the car runs smooth while driving I tend to believe the engine needs a tune-up. If the idle speed is tolow or the timing has changed it can cause a rough idle.

Answer

When the engines is cold losen all the engine mount bolts roughly 1 turn, or so, start the engine and allow it to warm up until the idle drops,then shut it off and tighten mounts down to spec. The problem is that the engine is not sitting properly on the mount(it in a bind) and it's tranferring vibration into the frame of the car. This worked well on a 97 breeze which would shake smiliarly as describe since it was new.

An automobile engine usually shakes when it is being revved due the crank rotation. When revved in neutral, a torque is produced due to the reaction of the motor.

have you checked your motor mounts?

It means it probably needs a tune up.

If your car shakes while underway, your tires have worn incorrectly from misalignment. If it shakes while in park or not moving, your engine is misfiring.

When the engine light comes on and the car shakes at the same time, it could be the spark plugs or ignition coils are faulty. Misfiring is causing the car to shake.

Probably a misfire, it could be in need of a tune up.

sounds like you have a bad motor mount

If your engine shakes when you accelerate, you may have a broken motor mount. You need to get it fixed before your engine falls out of your car as you drive along.

If a Vortec engine shakes or rumbles at low RPMs it likely needs a timing adjustment. It would also simply need a tuneup.

If your check engine light is blinking , that means a cylinder misfire has been detected

It could be (a) misfiring cylinder(s). Check the condition of your plugs and wires. Also, check if your engine mounts are not worn.
