engine shaking??

Hey guys quick question. My car at idle the engine to be exact shaking/rattles. It goes away when it warms up but still noticeable. I just replaced the knock sensor, tomorrow replacing wires plugs and plan to do timing belt job in a few weeks. Hope that will fixes it.

What else could be the problem??

Thanks,

Worn out motor mount perhaps?

Yeah the plugs and wires are NGK. I haven't checked the mounts but I will now.

No info on that. I just got the car and precious owner didn't do much maintenance on it. I'm trying to get her back in shape so learning as I go. I will check that though.

Thanks

if one has been replaced and not both is that an issue? The passenger side went out out and I replaced it and how I have high speed shake and it sounds like a bad mount. At idle in gear I have a rattel and if I pop in N then it goes away
