All cars have shocks and/or struts. Grand am has front struts and either rear struts or shocks. When these are worn, the ride would be rough. If a motor mount was bad, you may feel rocking or visually see the motor wiggle back and forth when you press and release the accelerator pedal. Motor mounts won't affect handling. Either shocks/struts, sway bar, stabalizer bar or links are the common cause
there should be 6-8 bolts mounting it to the motor. and disconnect all wires remove transmission support(cross-member) after supporting the weight of the tranny. then rock it back and forth from side to side should slide out enough to remove the three bolts holding the torque converter on. then it should slide right out.( first remove drive-shaft and transfer-case.)
not CLIPS,, never heard of engine CLIPS,, you do have motor mounts @ transmission mounts that if bad,,they wiil create vibration in steering wheel if in park while in park or drive or reverse while car is still @ being shifted back @ forth from reverse or drive. here's a soltion for you! while hood is up,engine running,EMERGENCY BRAKE IS ON !! while somone is looking at motor while you shift car from drive to reverse back@ forth,, does motor JUMP and rock back and forth? IF so you have a bad motor or transmission MOUNT and I'VE never heard of CLIPS. hope this is some help..suggest you always get 2nd opinion

Yes if the mount is not on the correct way it will cause problems like that and even kill the motor while driving down the road. When the van was made thay put one of the main wiring harness's under the motor mount that bolts to the block. When its comes loose or off it starts shorting out your motor. You will ether need to replace the bracket or bolts or both. Bolt size is a M10 1.5 its a 17mm head. Or they might be loose. Mount is located in the front of the van inbetween the motor and transmission. Hopes this helps
A new and significant jump or jolt upon engaging the trans could mean you have a broken front engine mount. Your car has a transverse mounted engine with a big mount holding it at the front of the car. It this mount goes bad the engine can "twist" under the hood. This sudden twisting or torque reaction can be felt until the engine runs into something solid *(usually whats left of the engine mount).
Don't wait on this one....see a mechanic A.S.A.P. A damaged mount is only going to do more damage as the engine twists back and forth under the hood. Stressing out the other connections to the engine, i.e., electrical, fuel, exhaust. Leading to more damage.
