Engine Vibration at idle Ford Focus

Fix Engine Vibration at idle on a Ford Focus

If have a engine vibration at idle Ford Focus, this may be the fix.

Some engineers should be designing weapons to defeat the enemy, rather than our cars. Here’s a case where the engineers designed a “roll restrictor” (motor mount) that’s open to the elements. Well, elements is a kind word for things like gravel, rocks, ice, or snow. If any of that gets into the “roll restrictor,” the engine gets locked into an unstable position and that creates the feeling of a rough idle. The fix is to clean out the gravel, rocks, etc and install the shield that should have been designed into this piece from the beginning. The shield is part #2M5Z-16102-AA. This problem affects 2000-2006 Ford Focus vehicles.
