a mount will NOT set a check engine light you need to pull the codes and see what cylinder is misfiring

Will get code and get back to you

ok once you get them check the spark plugs and ignition wires if they are over 100k they need to be changed and a faulty ignition wire or spark plug will cause a misfire and the shaking you are getting.
remember you likely have only a v6 and missing 1 or 2 cylinders will cause it to run very poorly

New starter a year sgo
Expert:  bill replied 1 year ago.
don't think that has anything to do with the misfire, maybe a defective starter
