Default my 91 Accord vibrates at stop

When my car is at stop, and in reverse, I feel vibration on the wheel.
This goes away as I drive forward after about 15/20 mph.

Is this normal? Am I being oversensititve? Should I worry?

The motor mount was replaced a few months ago. At THAT time, it was
very shuddery.

I had to replace two motor mounts just recently. More than one was
bad and it was the vacuum controlled mount. Expensive!

Also, check idle speed to be sure that it's not too low.

Have someone you trust start the car. Open the hood and watch the engine
as the person presses down on the gas. Make sure the emergency brake is on
and the car is in park or the neutral position. Don't stand in front of
the car. See if the engine is over-vibrating or shaking. Also, have the
person behind the wheel keep their foot firmly on the brake and clutch
pressed down as they place it in reverse. Check again to see if the engine
is shaking. If it is shaking, you need to recheck all of the motor mounts.

There is a procedure to adjust the motor mounts in your car. All 4 are
first loosened, then they are torqued to very specific values (not all
the same) and in a very specific order.
