If you mean loose/broken motor mounts, here is a way to check. Uou'll need a helper for this, open the hood,start the engine, put the vehicle in drive and step on both the gas and the brake, now carefully have the helper look at the engine and see if it moves upwards/sideways, if it does your engine its most likely loose. also if when you acelerate you hear a noise under the hood, that may be another sign.
