Iam no mech but is it hard 2 change the motor n transmission mounts in a 96 ford thunderbird 3.8 engine if it is whats the going price 2 do so i dont get taken

It is fairly easy to do if you have a lift, but it is possible to do on the ground with a jack and jack stands. You will need to be able to unbolt both sides of the mount and support the engine with the jack while you replace the mounts. If you download the autozone app to a smart pone or tablet it will give you a repair estimate calculator,

My ford focus 2003 zts how do you know if fuse r3 is good or bad

if your under the hood and the "fuse" is black. then you're talking about a relay not a fuse. if its silver metal covered then its a breaker(self resetting). yes they wear out. Check the fans by isolating them by disconnecting the connectors and put a jumper connected to the battery if they run then yes check all fuses relays and wiring.

My 1996 ford thunderbird blows a fuse when I put it in reverse and the air conditioner stops working I replace the fuse and everything works fine until I put the

As Jeff asked earlier, we need more info. You did good to state the year, make and model. However, we need to know which fuse is being blown. [You should also always state the engine size with any request] The fuse block has numbers [small and hard to see] next to each fuse. I suspect that it is fuse #33 that is blowing out on you.
Sounds to me like you have a short circuit in the back up lamp circuit. The A/C probably stops working because it also uses this same fuse. To be honest, to solve this sort of problem requires a good knowledge of automotive electrical theory and a wiring schematic of the problem circuit. Unless you possess these, it would be best to take it to a good mechanic. Sorry, but this sort of repair does not lend itself to "Internet" repair by the uninitiated.

How do I replace the motor mounts on my 96 thunderbird 3.8L?

Put the car on ramps and set e brake.

Use engine hoist to lift engine weight off of car.

Remove mount to engine bolts, remove mount nut.

Lift engine just enough to remove mounts and install new.

Watch exhaust, fuel lines and transmission mount while lifting. They may have to be loosened or moved.
