Default motor mounts or tranny mounts

How many mounts are there? I have replaced the two in the front, one on the passenger side and the one in the front down by the transmission. Is there another one or is there also a separate tranny mount. I am getting a "thump" sometimes when my tranny shifts and I am wondering could it be mount related.

yes, tranny fluid is topped off and clean. Tranny rebuilt about 2 years ago. Also just had oil change and they also checked tranny fluid.

All the mounts are in the same places.

You are trying to get the motor out? If the trans is staying in.. then remove the mount by the water pump, unbolt the trans and you are out. Remember about the one bolt in the trans to engine that is backwards and only accessible through the passenger wheel well with long extensions.

No I am not pulling the engine. I have a "thump" sometimes when my tranny changes gears and I think it may be mount related.
