engine shaking excessively

I have a 1995 prelude with h22 vtec. I noticed that when my car is running, my engine shakes, and it causes the entire car to shake. It does it worse when the engine is cold. It will ease up when engine is warm, but always has a shake to it. I know it will shake a little no matter what, but this is excessive. Also I get a squeal on startup that goes away quickly. I don't know if tightening the belts will help eliminate the shaking or not. Please help.

Re: engine shaking excessively

Quite likely your motor mounts are shot.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: engine shaking excessively

it started doing it when I adjusted my idle up. It was idling at 400, so I put it up to 700. It doesn't stay there consistently. When adjusting idle, do you just turn the screw on the throttle body?

Re: engine shaking excessively

definetly your motor mounts, when u raised the idle you were not fixing the probly just putting load on the engine causing it to putt pressure on what ever mount is bad and not causing it to vibrate... check mounts!!!
