Vibrating 1994 Ford Escort

Stopped at light in drive car vibrates like
As if it wants to go but no throttle
Mabye a loose engine mount
Only does this stopped in drive
I usually just put it in neutral and it stops shaking

Might be a misfire. Is the check engine light on?

More likely a collapsed mount, not a “loose engine mount”
