    cause for bad motormounts?

    could an accident cause motor mounts to go bad? the one i had a few months back- she hit me right behind the driver's door, spun me around. Could that have jolted the mounts? going into first gear i get alot of racket coming from the front of the car

    are you sure the wheels are still aligned properly??? if it is the motor mounts it's probably just bad timing...

    If ya don't have a lift:

    Ramps
    Floorjack
    Block of wood about 4"x4"

    Drive the front wheels on ramps, put block of wood between oil pan and jack, unbolt mounts, lift engine off mounts and swap.

    this is dangerous though... just be VERY careful if you attempt this...

    Might take longer than it would if you had a lift and air tools.

    be warned tho..trans and motor poly mounts together will transmit a lot of vibration
