All you have to do is look at the engine and

You will have to be completely under it

You should have at least 2 motor mounts
and 1 transaxle mount

The one side of the mount has to go to
the sub frame or cradle

I would change them all

How can I tell if my crown victoria motor mounts are broken

You need to open the hood. You can have someone stand by the fender and look at the engine while you do this test. Now start the engine and put it into drive gear, apply the brake and step on the accelerator pedal to bring the RPM up a little. The helper must watch how much the engine as it lifts or twists. More than an inch or two you have a broken mount. Now do the same thing in reverse gear to check the other side. This vehicle is a rear wheel drive and will have 3 motor mounts. Left , right (both under the exhaust manifolds) and a rear mount at the rear of the transmission. This mount should be visually checked as well. I hope this helps.

Possible broken motor mount(s)

Check your motor mounts. Broken doesn't always mean "in Pieces". A motor mount is basically a shock absorber made of some type of rubber, held in place by a metal bracket.

Im buying this truck for $500. the only thing i hear wrong with it is the motor shakes bad almost like the bolts mounting to the tranny r bad. can those bolts be replaced and the motor and tranny stay...

i would check the motor mounts to make sure the bolts are tight, then i would check the rear transmission mount bolts, also to make sure they are tight. yes , if the bolts mounted to the tranny need to be replaced, you can normally get them from a auto part store.

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.
