1997 mazda protege: 1.5 liter 4 cyl w/ automatic transmission)

This answer was rated:

My 1997 mazda protege (1.5 liter 4 cyl w/ automatic transmission) has a severe vibration coming from it when putting into drive on a cold start. Rattles the entire vehicle. When the car warms up, vibration lessons but is still there. There is little or no vibration when the vehicle is in neutral. I just performed trhe following serivces: replaced spark plugs, air filter, pcv, fuel filter and cap, rotor and wires. performed timing belt, wate rpump, cam and crank seal replacement as well as throttle body fuel injection service. Any ideas???
Hi,how are you from what you are describing,this sounds like the result of a broken transmission mount.
