2 Questions
When i give my vr6 gas in neutral i noticed it shakes at around 1500 to 2000 rpm, then goes away if i keep going up in rpms, im pretty sure the motor mounts are bad since i can litterallly go under the hood and move the engine with my hand back and forth...

second, i washed my engine bay today, and i sprayed it down with water. and then i started the car up and i noticed the sound of electrical arc, and i got out to look at i saw an arc from one of the splug coil towers arcing to the icm housing..
so my question is, if the coil is arcing when its wet only, does that mean its misfiring when its not wet? because when its not wet it seems to be running fine

Yeah replace those swiss cheese mounts, and its not a good idea ever to spray water on your motor. If your coil pack is arcing it's probably a good idea to replace.
