your engine mounts are possibly worn, support the engine with a hydraulic jack and axle stands and remove the engine engine mounts, simple enough, clock dims possibly down to poor battery or bad alternator

No unfortunately I put a battery in to just hold me til I buy. A bread new one I went through checked all my fuses and electrical the car runs fine as is but I'm just very particular with cars I can't have some of these things half assed you just never know what can go wrong and this was my first car I ever bought and it kinda means something to me so I'm hoping to get it back to tip top shape.
