asked by on

The car vibrates at stop lights and in park and runs more roughly than usual...changed out all motor and transmission mounts and tried fuel injection cleaner...still vibrates...check engine light is not lit and diagnostic check shows nothing.

My car has 90000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
