Could a worn-out dogbone cause shifts that feel sluggish due to higher amounts of engine/tranny swing?
I believe that is possible. Considering that they also can cause it to not shift period, at least on their own (i.e. you have to shift manually).

Oh ya. My solid motor mount made a very noticeable difference and my OEM mount was brand new in comparison.

Get it scanned!! You need to make sure your not running to rich or lean, and you need to see if you have any KR.

Hehehe.... alright, thanks guys! I always figured the motor mounts could affect the "feel" of the car adversely, I just wanted to make sure. My next question: what options do I have for either a stiffer, high quality dogbone or else a solid mount in place of the dogbone?

Yes, driving your car is 10* weather will kill your car in about 6 months . Driving your car in that weather is not bad, but going past 3,000rpm before the engine gets up to temp, IS bad. Just think there is an egg under your foot when the car is warming up. Then you will be okay. I don't even think about going past 2k before I see my temp gauge move. But that'* just me. Others may disagree.

Good way to crack a head or block if you don't think you have an egg under than pedal.....

Yeah, I definitely take it easy when it'* really cold outside. My question pertained more to whether or not it'* ok to drive hard once the engine is up to 180 degrees.

But all that aside. How 'bout my previous question?!

once your temp is up to anything over 140-150 I think you're pretty safe....I won't beat on mine until i get past the first notch past 100.

As for your question at hand......I'm sorry but I do not know of anything....but I'm sure someone else here does.

Lol, it'* okay Lakeville... I appreciate you addressing the winter driving question. I'm glad that hard driving in the cold is okay once I'm up to normal operating temp. Thanks, man.
