First off I wanted to say thanks to everyone on this board for all the great tips! I tried searching for an answer but to no avail.

I recently purchased a 2004 Ex with 78000 miles. I noticed that the engine jolts pretty hard right at start up. Is this normal?

The van also idles a little "rougher" than what i'm used to.

Is there anything in particular I should look for?

Other than these issues we love the van.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

The usual statement about hard to be accurate without seeing the problem. Engine mounts are a big problem. The front, right side and rear are often broken by this time and let the engine move too much. The other two mounts are on the transmission. Sometimes broken too. Hold brakes on and keep the car from moving and run the engine up a bit in drive and reverse. Does it move much? If the firewall side moves up much in reverse, the rear mount might be bad. If the radiator side moves up much in drive, maybe the front mount.
