    Is the engine misfiring? Do you have a check engine light on.

    Nope. It is not misfiring. No engine light on and no oscilating rpm at idle. Just hood vibration at idle which is also felt in the steering wheel. Also, when acceleratin in first gear, it has a hesitation/trepidation which is really anoying in traffic.

    I would recommend that you replace all the engine mounts.

    I replaced no. 1 engine mount , and transmision engine mount and the problem is still there. It may be because of the hidraulic passanger side? Or a vacumm leak?

    Hydraulic engine mount is not leaking and the rubber looks ok.The car has been used for 41.000 km.

    Maybe missalignment of the motor mounts?

That is what we called dragging when you replace the clutch did you check the pressure plate? it tends to worn the plate with the lining so when you replace the lining it touches an uneven surfaces thats why it hesitates if its not too late when replacing the clutch include the pressure place release bearings and all the knick knacks that goes with so you'll a have a trouble free clutch

SOURCE: mazda 3 vibration prblem

I have been searching for a possible culprit on this and found the the WHEEL BEARING (inside the wheel hub assembly if I'm not mistaken) could be at fault. At low speeds you will feel/hear a sounds that seems to me coming from your tires (as if you had a flat, but you really don't) and it can cause vibration at higher speeds.

When i start to drive in first gear, i experience extreme shaking

If you have a manual gear box there are two things that you can check. First is the engine mounts especially the rear one to see if the rubber has broken away. Check all engine mounts for the same problem.. The second is a failing clutch or if you have a cable operated clutch it points to engine mounts. What appears to be happening is when you engage the clutch in first gear the torque reaction of the engine is rolling the gear box away from the clutch actuation arm or lever. The clutch slips ,the engine rolls back ,the clutch engages , the engine rolls and so you have a bad shudder. When you are moving the reaction is less as you move up through the gears . If all is good then have a qualified clutch and brake specialist do a check on the clutch itself.

Car Shakes Violently On 1St Gear

It sounds like you have a blown throw out bearing for the clutch operation. Fix it soon or you'll do a whole lot more damage to the drivetrain.

My car shakes as I release the clutch for moving from a stop position. If I press the accelerator a little while starting, the shaking does not happen. For other gears there is no shaking

the problem here is your clutch disc. you need to replace it already.

remember to replace also the fly wheel and release bearing in replacing your clutch disc.

98 mazda millenia shaking front end at 40 mph?? any clues??

try the simple solution first put your front tires on back and back tires on front. check your air pressure then take it for a drive and see if any thing has changed. if so you probably have a badly worn tire. if no change have someone move the steering wheel back and forth wyle you are under the fornt of the car (dont forget to chalk the wheels) and see if any of your steering components are loose/moving. if nothing is loose and your tires are good try to bounce the front end. if you can really get the front of the car going up and down pretty easy you havce bad struts/shocks.

2 problems with 1990 Honda Accord

First one, your clutch might be slipping and need adjusting/replacement(I'm assuming it's a manual transmission), try getting it adjusted first. If you have an automatic, your fluid might be low or filter clogged.
Second one, most common cause of the vibration is warped or rough brake rotors. Sometimes a wheel alignment will help(you would be able to tell- if your front tires are worn unevenly)
