Question about Ford Escort
Tightening is not usually the issue. If they are loose, it's probably because the rubber has separated and you will need new mounts. They are not too difficult to replace, but you do need to know your way around a wrench, and you will need a floor jack to hold the engine up while changing them. First jack the engine a bit on a hard point (you can jack on the oil pan if you put a block of wood on your jack) to see what, if any, of your mounts has broken.
I don't have the manual for your car, but there is usually one mount right in front of the engine between the serpentine belt and attaching to the right fender well. Another one is usually going from the lower part of the engine to the radiator support. There may or may not be a third mount on the engine, but there will probably be one on the tranny somewhere too. have I totally confused you? Let me know if you have questions.
