Could it be that, or something like an oxygen sensor it also has a rattle coming from air intake when the engine is warmed up i have heard that is a common problem with the old camry so would that be somting that would cause that too.

Well do check the dog bone motor mount on the passenger side they often go bad and do that. But one transmissions without mileage often will do that too and it could just be that you catalytic converter code is another completely on related problem. If the catalytic converter was going out what would happen is the engine would run hotter cuz the car can't get rid of the hot exhaust gas and it would only be able to go to a certain speed like 50 mph and no further from being clogged up

I just replaced the dog bone mount the rubber had cracks about an inch long on every corner but it was not completely broken would that be enough to cause the movement
