Im gonna be honest, i dont even know what ones yet. All i can say is my uncle who is a mechanic took a ride with me because the engine seems to shake sometimes. atleast above 3500 rpms.. and we most likely believe its a motor mount. atleast my 1992 did that and the mounts were replaced, problem was solved.

i had a post awhile back about the car shaking and i believe it was suggested to check the mounts. My question is, does this seem odd?? She has 104,000 miles on her. Im the 3rd owner.

I just replaced the front mount on my car. When I took the original one out, it was almost ripped right in half. I thought about taking pictures when I saw it, I wish I would have now. My 2002 had 91,00 miles on it when I took it out. So I would say it'* not impossible for it go bad already.

Does it seem like you get a lot of rock out of the engine? I noticed my CAI hitting my hood when going WOT. That'* why I checked mine.

To best describe it, if im at a dead stop shifting from Reverse to Drive, it shakes the entire car nice and good, like you dont want to have a full cup of Coffee or its gonna get everywhere (been there done that )
and it does rock when going from 1st to second gear sometimes, which could be a tranny problem but that was ruled out 2 weeks ago at the last oil change. that could be anywhere between 3000 and higher RPMs

Sounds like the next thing you need to do is crawl under there and figure out which one.

Solved.

Believe it or not it was the front Tranny mount ( thats what GM calls it)
Anyway, i took the thing out of there and the whole thing is worn. I dont believe the difference in driving already. I think it was like that before i bought her.

so yes, it is possible for a 2000+ car to need mounts, $81.49 was the cost.

you know you could have done the solid motor mount mod for around $15, right?
