Default 96 accord 4 cylinder engine vibration

I have an engine vibration coming up through the gas pedal when I
apply the gas.Its there through all speeds except when the engine is
idleing.The mechanics at the dealership canít find the problem.Timing
has been checked.
Could there possibly be a motor mount failure?

Motor mount failure would be my guess. My '93 was about the same age
as your '96 when it began to have motor mount problems. One mount (the
rear?) is hard to see and is bad about crushing. But, this should have
been the first thing the dealer checked. They probably did. If they
did not, I would take it somewhere else.

Thanks for your info Elliot. Does the rear mount usually fail first?
Iím not sure if It is liquid filled but the dealer should know.

Thanks again, Arnold

If I understand it right, the liquid filled mounts were used with automatic
tranny models. My daughter's engine is vibrating a lot, and I suspect the
rear mounts. (I'll take a look later this week when the Helm manual
arrives.) The price on-line is pocket change more than $200 US apiece, but
if that's what it needs....

Mike
