There are two liquid filled and a trans mount. You need to found out which way the motor jumps if it jumps back to the fire wall I would change the two liquid fill. They are located looking at the engine on the pulley side left and right bolted to A-frame you can change one at a time. Unbolt one and jack motor with a floor jack and board just lift enough to drop it in and out. It's tough I know I did it before but it can be done. And do the same for the other. Trans mounted one never needs replaced. Just make sure the mounts are bad cause front wheel drive motors usally move but if its moving more than 2"-4" then replace them.

I have a 1996 toyota camry that jumps when I put it in drive, and if when I try to accelerate sometimes it jumps. I dont know if its the motor mount or transmission. Do you know what it could be?

I would suggest you check & possibly replace all
the engine & transaxle mounts, based on the age of the car

Next you have to separate an engine performance issue,
from a possible trans issue

I suspect you have a mount problem & a possible sensor
problem or something that effects the trans shifting strategy.

How can I tell if the mechanic actually replaced my motor mounts? where are they on a 2001 Ford Taurus? I found the one on the top bone mount. Where are the other two? Thanks.

They are liquid filled,an the bottom,bolted to the subframe,should be able to see them both,and if he did the engine shouldn't jump around anymore.

The front wheels and steerting wheel of my 1994 ford escort shake when accelerating and braking.... could you tell me what the problem might be ?

Probably one or more bad motor or transmission mounts. You can brake torque the engine in reverse and drive, if the engine rocks violently in either step those mounts need replaced.

Where is the EGR pressuure sensor at. Need to replace it.

Ford Taurus SES 3.0 L 6-cylinder
EGR valve are directly behind the intake manifold.


I listen from Taurus owners that just had the same problem (EGR insufficient and EGR excessive) and they replaced the EGR valve and the 4 oxygen sensors (if you do this use Ford sensors). This didn't fix the problem; then changed the Vacuum Regulator Solenoid and a tube mounted sensor part numbers F63Z-9J459-AA, and 4U7Z-9J460-AA. this fixed my check engine light and code issues, as well as it stopped idling so high that it caused the trans to jump into gear. It sometimes jumped so hard that he thought he had a broken motor mount.

Good luck (remember rated this).

Car shudders on acceleration

I'd check the motor mounts. Shuddering upon acceleration indicates movement of the engine inside the compartment. Best of luck.

Engine cuts out

For the sticking accelerator you can try spraying some penetrating oil down the tube the cable runs through with the little plastic straw tape to the side of the can. Also spray some on the the accelerator pivot points inside the car.
On some Ford vehicles there are two fuel filters.
The one you see in the engine compartment and another mounted on the frame that is suppose to last the life of the car, so it isn't mentioned in the owners manuel. Call a Ford dealer and ask if your car came with one, if it did I would change it even if they don't think it needs to be. It's a cartridge filter and cost about $10.
After that I would do a fuel pressure test and a fuel out-put test that is perform with the car running.

1994 Nissan Altima shakes while idling

Broken or worn out engine mounts will cause allot of engine vibration in drive at idle, reverse also, change all 4 the mounts, not just the 2 broken ones. As far as slow acceleration no mounts will not cause that, Have you reached the 100,000 mile recommended tune up? have you ever replaced the fuel filter, this is required every 30,000, let me know.
