Check the compression and the timing.

when it started (at initial startup after gaskets replaced) they were Good,, but the vibration has weakened them, when i say Vibration, at idle, it VIBRATES...you can see engine rotating on mounts.. has there been any Balancer issues ?? this IS the second time i have seen this, at a carlot my son replaced then engine in a taurus 3.8 after it shook itself apart, also right after head gasket replacement..
