Describe the vibration better. Is it a manual or automatic. It is when starting off, or at higher speed. Does it happen when slowing down or turns. Normally you can tell when motor mounts are bad because of the deteriorated rubber bulging out, oil soaked, cracked or ripped, etc. Or pry on the engine with a long 2x4.

    If a plug, wire, or injector was bad, then the engine would run rough, but that would include when the vehicle was not even moving. And if it vibrates when not even moving, it could not possibly be a motor mount. So since the dealer replaced a motor mount, I assume it only vibrates under load. In which case it could not then be a plug, wire, or injector.

    So again, it would help if you could describe the vibration better? When does it do it? What does it sound like?

2001 Focus Vibrates Inexplicably!

Vibrations while driving are usually caused by missing/broken motor mounts, wheel bearings, unbalanced tires, or worn/bent 1/2 axles.
Improper tires (or winter tires) may also contribute.
Get a second opinion!
There are too many things on a 2001 that could be wrong.
