Default 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,

Plugs to be NGK wires to be NGK or Subaru.

Worn out motor mount perhaps?

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

Thanks,

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
