Default BC comes in handy again, thanks guys!

Well, I noticed the car would jerk when it was shifting (under light acceleration). When I stepped on it it just got up and went. When I got home i took a look at that "marshmallow" on the tranny. I knew to do this because I used the search feature of BC and found Haro'* hockey pucks.

With the car in park, I pushed the car back and forth while watching that mount. Guess what, it allowed a good couple of inches of roll on the motor.

New one installed yesterday and it fixed the funny shifting. I could not believe how far I could pull the lower stud out of the rubber chunk.

Another note, i ended up at Napa again. They had the part same day, auto zone and Schucks was a 2 day wait.

Will post a picture when I get off work in the morning.

I just did the hockey puck mount on mine. Old one was filled with water, mud and what appeared to be rusty oil...
