Engine/transmission bolts is the one that keeps the engine and the transmission to become stable while connected with each other, when one of the bolt is loose the transmission will vibrates, the vibration is enough to be noticeable and cause the entire car to shake while the clutch engage from a stop.

If the clutch is faulty it can cause uneven contact with the flywheel, in this case vibration will occur between the two parts which is severe enough to be felt from the entire car.
