Sounds like they didn't get the balance shaft timed right. It's easy to get it together wrong. If the timing belt is right, it'll start right up, but if the balance shaft isn't syncronized as well, the thing will shake like an old washing machine! Better take it back to the shop. They lined up the balance shaft wrong, I'd bet money on it.

Water Pump Location/Issues '87 Accord


Location: left-upper area of block, front

To replace water pump:
1) remove timing belt
2) remove thermostat housing and water pump inlet pipe
3) remove alternator bracket
4) remove water pump and O ring

Pump bushings could be going out if the technician is not properly setting belt tension.

Vibration could be either severe engine miss or, most likely, you should check all engine and transmission mounts for broken rubber.

Lots of engine oil in air filter


Do you have good vacuum at the PCV valve? Remove your spark plugs and run a compression test. Sounds like you have a lot of blow by. Combustion gases blowing by the piston rings.
