HI, yes a collapsed or broken motor mount can put a bind on the drive axles other components can cause conditions of rough shifting, vibrations, suspension and steering problems.

I know it will give the car a vibration causing a rough running motor but as far as rough shifting, I am not real sure about that.

My Acclaim is rough shifting. Will a bad cable


Not very likely but your best bet would be to start with a 100k Full Transmission Service (a.k.a. Trans Filter and Machine Fluid exchange) Prices vary on your area, the national average is around $130 which is not bad at all, but in some areas it could be $200 + so be careful and shop around, but remember if you go to like a Sears Auto Center or a Walmart, you may have a loss in quality than from going to a local shop! If you need anything else let me know

Car kicks back and forth when idling or the gas is applied


It sounds like you have some broken motor mounts under the hood and one of the main ones that break on those models is the torque strut. When my torque strut was bad in my car the car would jolt when I shifted the gears and it would shimmy when it was idling. I would get your motor mounts checked to see if thats the issue and if its not it may be a motor issue such as a misfire which can couse the motor to backfire and idle rough when its misfiring. I hope this works!!!
