you may be idling a little to high but this sounds pretty normal because of the way the transmission is pulling the car

AnswerWell, have you looked at your transmission mounts? I know my car does that and im pretty sure about my mounts being toast. the motor produces torque and i think if these mounts are not good, then the motor will be acting on your front axle when they are not securely anchored. Im taking a stab at it but i bet you got front wheel drive.


AnswerEither your framed is cracked or rusted, OR Your engine cradle mount bushing/bolts could be broken. could be front or rear wheel drive. same effect happens with both drivetrains when in respective gears.
