Failing Engine mount??

I replaced my engine air filter yesterday and went to start up the car to make sure everything was tightened down correctly and noticed that the engine seemed to shake a lot even after it warmed up an idle settled.

Is this an indication that one of the mounts is on its way out? Car has like 52k on it. Anything else I can pay attention to try and isolate the mount?

No CELís correct? Do a scan and check for soft codes first.

No CEL's. that wouldn't be a result of a failing engine mount though, correct? I'm guessing a physical inspection is in order.

How’s the idle and revs, are they operating normal ? Also, rev the engine and have someone check the engine and see if it jerks forward. I think the person said to scan it first to rule out any possibilty that it might be something else causing the engine to shake.
