Symptoms of Bad Engine Mounts
I was wondering which are the symptoms of bad engine mounts. I feel a slight vibration on my gas pedal, shifting is not perfect (feel like trans is slightly slipping) especially between 2nd and 3th during hard acceleration and I feel a little loss of power, like someone is pressing and releasing the brake pedal. I already changed my trans mount and I know my motor mounts are broken, one has the rubber completely disconnected from the metal. Could be these symptoms related to bad engine mounts ?

I highly doubt it, but I guess it could be possible that if the mounts were "toast", that the engine couldmove enough to maybe cause an electrical connection to start coming apart...causing issues....but I really dont think that is happening

I don't think to an electrical problem... I don't have codes with the 3 On/Off and the dealer checked it with the DRB Scan tool. The dealer says that everything is ok. He just upgraded my Trans SW for the second OD, but I have these issues before i did it.

Re: Symptoms of Bad Engine Mounts
The vibration in the gas pedal is probably your engine mount. The hesitation/slipping is probably your transmission. Have you had it serviced regularly including band adjustment? How many miles?

(Incidentally, you can check for broken motor mounts by opening your hood and pushing in on the throttle linkage by hand to "goose" the engine. If the mounts are good, you should see just a little vibration in the engine, if the mounts are gone, you'll see a more dramatic vibration.)
