engine rocking.

hi there,
just wondering if anyone can help me with a problem i have with my clio. when i start my clio on a morning the engine rocks back and forward quickly, i have replaced the dog bone lower engine mount plus i replaced the upper gear box mount and it still rocks back and forward when i first start it , it stops rocking when car has warmed up. any ideas.

kind regards

Re: engine rocking.

Despite changing a couple of mounts ....i would re check all mounts.....does the RPM become erratic? check also spark plugs and coils ...do you have air-con and is it on when starting up the car?

Re: engine rocking.

does the engine "rock" when car stationary or when its moving? how far does the engine actually travel and is that travel from front to rear or from side to side. sounds simple, but knowing how the engine is rocking and if the car is moving will help identify the issue
