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!

I am still waiting for an answer. The book says on 1999 and newer Taurus's the engine and transaxle must be removed underneath the vehicle to change motor mounts. You will need a hoist and engine cradle. Big Job! Check with a proffessional.

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