rattling vibration especially when turning right and engine cold. car mechanic said drive axle broken, replaced it. sound got even worse after that (also when driving straight). they had another look. said engine pushes against axle.

Vibrations through dash and steering wheel mostly on left side, probably the motor mounts
Have had all motor mounts and transmission mounts replaced and still have the engine vibration issues.
My car went in for service on my starter switch and they told me that I need to replace the right front engine mount

engine shakes at idle, motor mount bad
Car started getting louder about a year ago. Was loudest at startup and when idle, but OK on the road. Took 3 mechanics to figure this out
