Car vibrating on a stop while in drive mode

Greetings once again.

I'm here creating a post once again, asking for all of your help, my last post was greeted with helpful and an expert opinion (thanks Tony) it's a testament that this forum is really altruistic in helping out a fellow aurion/Camry owner.

I encountered a problem or is it something that I could live with?. Whenever I'm in drive mode, at the same time I put my feet on the break the car seems to vibrate and I could also feel the vibration through the steering wheel, I haven't encountered this problem for the past months but it's quite annoying and concerning but it doesn't vibrate whenever I'm cruising or the car is moving or in neutral or park.

Thanks in advance

Sounds like you have bad engine mount/s. The most common one to go bad first is what's called the "dog bone" mount on the upper right of the engine if it's a Camry/Aurion.

I don't recall exactly what car you have and engine configuration to be able to point you in the right direction for the part in question, but have your mechanic inspect all your mounts, including the bottom ones.

My money is on the top dog bone being the main culprit.

I truly appreciate your fast response tony, my car is a 2008 Camry 3.5 v6 (2grfe), with 76000 km on the clock, it's a left hand car and fwd. Yes sir, duly noted on the need to check on my mounts, especially the dog bone part, additional question, how much is the part of ever I would replace it jus my in case it's been identified as the culprit?

Take a look on Ebay for sellers in your area or if you have a local Toyota dealer you're comfortable with, it's your choice. Dealer pricing for you will obviously be different to ours (Australia) as you are overseas somewhere (not sure exactly where), but I would definitely check the price from your local dealer for a Genuine part then you can compare to the aftermarket prices online. If there isn't much difference in pricing, I'd always go for Toyota Genuine parts. Toyota would most likely be more expensive, but it's always good to check first. 

Please make sure you enquire with your VIN # so they can cross check the correct fitment. 

You can either opt to do all the engine mounts or just replace the bad one. 

On second thoughts, You did mention a vibration, so I'm tending to think it may also be the front mount too as well as the dog bone. A bad dog bone, will give off a "thud" or "lurching" movement and some vibration, but the front lower mount will give off vibration as it's mounted directly to the front lower crank case section of the engine and this can transfer the engine movements to the chassis if the damper is bad.
If it were my car I'd just do the whole lot so they are new all and even in wear and tear.

Also, for you information, the dogbone mount just on its own is very easy to replace too. You won't need to pay someone if you have a basic DIY approach and some tools of your own. If not, then you can probably ask a friend to help. It's a very simple procedure. To do the rest will involve a bot more dismantling, but anyone with some DIY knowledge and the right tools can do this work.

Here a kit I found in the U.S, which may be helpful to you. Seems like a pretty popular choice for many too. Just make sure you provide your VIN # before purchasing so it's correct.

Thank you so much Tony, yes I will abide by your opinion to check the mounts especially those parts that you described,

One last question Tony, unfortunately my trusted mechanic is on a vacation leave and I would like to ask, if I could still drive (highway and town) the car even with the problem persisting (there's no damage being done)?

Unless your car is overheating or you have a check engine light, its not gonna get any worse. Any vibration through the wheel is normaly only a few issues. either engine mounts, brake/rotor issues, power steering...

 

If the floor is vibrating then it could be the transmission or drive shaft

Update: I'm quite confused and dumbfounded right now, my mechanic said that all the suspension parts and consumables (motormounts, dampers, and etc) are in good shape and he stated that the culprit could be a camshaft sensor or there's a need for ATF replacement, what is your opinion regarding this @Tony Pr
