1996 Honda Accord Question: vibration when car is in reverse and idle

 

Question

My car has just come out of the repair shop but now I am feeling a strong vibration with a loud noise when I am in either park(very little in park) reverse and when in idle. I am wondering if this may be the motor mounts. I am not too sure when the timing belt was last replaced and that is also worrying me. What might be causing that vibration?

    If this is all since it was worked on , take it back and have them tell you why this is happening.
    If you don't know how old your timing belt is you should probably replace it.

    On 1990 to 1996 models, 2.2 Accords Honda recommend replacing the timing belt at 90,000 mile intervals or every 72 months.
    Your vibration sounds like it may be an engine mount failure.
