Make sure the motor mounts are good.I assume the strut(s) is not the problem.

Inspect the lower ball joints and the bushings for the control arms.

The 1997 Ford Taurus has for motor mounts and to transmission mounts. Worn motor mounts and transmission mounts will allow the engine and transmission to have movement.

I have a 1990 Chevy Lumina and when you hear clunking sounds when going over bumps or dips or if you have ever replaced your strut assembly you should replace the mounts. You can buy a quickstrut online for a lumina. Front is around $180 and rear is around $80. Hope that helps!

It's probably your shock mounts, I had the same problem. The noise went away after I replaced the shock mounts.

Most likely your upper shock mounts. Get them checked over.

Vibrations and clunking noise are both signs of bad motor mounts. If the clunking is getting worse than mounts should be changed to avoid any serious damaged to major engine components.

3 2 engine mounts and 1 transmission mount

Well I'll tell ya, I have a 1992 Taurus and the mounts just went out around 220,000 miles this November 2007.

Three two engine and a transmission mount .

One clunk when accelerating (but now repeated clunks) and another when braking can be caused by broken motor mounts.

User Avatar

If the old mounts were compressed over the years, there could be a small lift of the engine with new mounts. If the lift is more than an inch or so, you should check that the proper mounts were installed.

User Avatar

it could be your engine mounts are needing replaced

User Avatar

Most likely the gearbox mounts are failing and need replacing. This can cause this problem even when the engine mounts are fine.

User Avatar

The bonded rubber is probably ripped, replace them.

User Avatar

The most probable reason for the engine to shake at idle is the motor mounts may need replaced. This is generally from the front and rear motor mounts; however, the sides may need replaced as well.

Motor and transmission mounts. Or differential is getting worn(check fluid- sometimes the differential fluid and transmission are shared- if not, refill or youll lose the differential ).Check the easiest first, the mounts are probably old, worn and broken.

I just replaced my back engine mounts on my 2003 mitsh. lancer. It cost me $214 at a Mitsubishi dealership in Queens, NY. Unfortunately, I had to go to the dealership because no other auto store or shop had the parts. My engine & car was jumping/jerking whenever the car was in reverse or drive. Scary. After I got the back mounts on (because there's two - front and back). Now I have a stuttering/jerking problem but based on diagnostic test it's my coils that have to be replaced.. oh boy :)

three --- two on passenger side one trans mount on drivers side

Have the shop tha installed the motor mounts check and see if all mounts were replaced and if they are tight.

It could be your front strut mounts need to be replaced. The rubber inside the strut mounts, wears out. You will hear the noise when u drive over bumps and uneven surfaces. my 2004 grand am se1 4 door ,with the 3.4 v6 engine and automatic transmission, needs the front strut mounts replaced.
