First off, what car are you referring to?

On most VWs, there's 3 mounts for the motor/tranny. On some motors, it may be normal for a slight slant.

Once we know what car and what motor, we can start troubleshooting.

So you are saying that the passenger side mount is good but the engine is tilted to that side? Also, the motor shakes more toward the trans/drivers side? :huh: On the 1.8T the passenger side mount is hydraulic. It may look fine but it could be empty...
