A: This sounds like you may have a worn engine...

This sounds like you may have a worn engine or transmission mount. I would visually inspect each mount and check for wear or cracks in the rubber bushings. Over time, a worn or cracked bushing may not absorb the engine or transmission vibration as well as it did when the vehicle was new, causing the entire vehicle to vibrate.

I would recommend hiring a qualified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to diagnose the vibration you’re experiencing firsthand and/or replace any worn mounts.
