Hello guys, I have a 09 V6 accord, but now I've been noticing when I popped my hood the engine is moving a little bit when idling, this It didn't happen before, I guess I'm due for a tune up, I already have 31,000 miles on it, but I haven't done anything else other than change oil, and air filters
what you guys think it might be?

if you drive aggressively a lot, your motor mounts may be worn out by 31k miles, which would explain the vibration
if you mean oil change as tune up, ya, your oil is probably black and isn't doing its job as usual.
if you were to use 10w30 oil, with some lucas heavy oil (don't know the name exactly, friend uses it); the engine will vibrate much less and feel much smoother. Basically the heavier the oil, the smoother/less vibration the motor gives, also creates less ticking noise :D
