Question about 1998 Toyota RAV4
You may need new motor mounts...if they are worn out this would allow additonal vibration from the engine to transfer to the vehicle body & doors . If it is 4WD then also check underneath for the center driveshaft mount. Higher mileage cars tend to have the mounts lose there ability to dampen engine movement upon engagement.
Any shop should be able to push on the brake and engage the transmission in drive or reverse and watch the whole vibration event happen.
Then it becomes a determination of which mounts to replace.
