I don't think it's an engine mount as the problem wasn't there when i bought the car, and it's only started happening 3 wks ago, and there shouldn't be any real reason for autobahn to touch the engine mounts unless they were taking the whole engine out when performing a basic service. Plugs and leads were replaced the last time i took the car in, someone else i've spoken to mentioned coil packs so I might get them checked in case...anyways I'm gonna get the timing done next time I decide to take it in, thanks for replying :thumbsup:lol. it could be an engine mount mine has a knocking noise, shakes like a cam has been put in it. but it has idling issues but it doesn't not sound like a WRX, have you checked spark plugs, leads and coil packs?
it could be timing, i would also check the CV Joints and rear axles, along with suspension components to make sure they are all in good condition.
I found part of the problem today when I was glancing through the engine bay....the problem with the car sounding like it's got a worked cam when idle and a lot of the shaking was due to the left centre spark plug lead being off...I don't know how it came off, but either way I put it back on and now a fair bit of the noise has been reduced and the car stopped shaking while idle...now just to resolve the pulling from the back which is on hold for a bit right now due to certain extenuating circumstances which leave my car stranded under a car cover in the car porch :bang:I thought the problem was sorted...it's not, but I think it may be that the timing is out. I mean it is out a bit for sure coz car is backfiring, but I dunno. either way at the moment it sounds like a WRX when accelerating and like it has a worked camshaft when idle, and it's pulling and shaking from the back end....it looks spectacular when it heats up and you just sit there idling...I wish the car did it for a good reason...I want a cam put in lol
