Post 2002 e320 4-matic engine shaking

my check engine light came on recently and the car's engine shakes at idle and slow speeds.(rough slowing down and stopping). took it to a mechanic and he said that i needed engine mounts.

i took it to autozone to check the code for the CE light. the codes came for misfires in 5 cylinders. i changed all the spark plugs to bosch platinum 4 but it still says misfire in cylinder 2 (i swapped the ignition coil from another e320 but the engine was still shaking) . engine still shakes like before even changing the spark plugs.

could it be the ignition coil that is causing the misfires? but how could it say misfires in 5 cylinders and the car is still driveable. is this coming from the o2 sensor, fuel system or what? any help would be appreciated.

Slight flutters at idle are usually always caused by plug wires. Especially if youve got misfires in 5 cylinders. Im not saying your engine mounts and/or transmission mount arent bad, but they dont cause misfires.

This is why taking it to the dealership is worth it, they have the proper factory equipment for diagnosis.
