the weather got a lot warmer today, up to -12C, and my car was running almost as smooth as in the summer - at least compared to -27C. It really seems that the frozen mountings were the reason for the loud and vibrating engine. I'm not sure if anything but warmer temperature can help that.

<strong>Hi all,

I just called a specialist at the local importer and he said that there is actually nothing wrong with the engine itself but the rubber bushes, or the rubber thingies that hold the engine in place get really hard when it's cold. And if the car is not driven for a few days, the engine is not damped so well by the cold bushes and it gets real loud and shaky. That's exactly what happened to me, so I think my problem is solved. I just need to drive the car more often. After all, that's what cars are made for.

Thanks to all of you for your answers.
