I have a motor mount going bad. When I shift from park into drive sometimes I hear this THUMP and it is LOUD. That is tell-tale sign of the motor mount being bad.

It is the engine shifting because there is no mount to hold it in place.

It's really loud like WHUMP!!!! :-)

As far as I know, this is not something u want to let go too long as it can be very dangerous should the other side of the mount break too.

Will a mercury sable transmission fit a Ford Taurus?

Yes. However the motors and transmissions need to be the same. Mercury Sables and Ford Tauruses share the same powerplant. So, if you have a 3.0L OHV V6 12V Vulcan motor then any Ford Taurus or Mercury Sable with the 3.0L OHV V6 12V Vulcan motor can supply you with a transmission.However, if you have a 3.0L DOHC V6 24V Duratec motor, you MUST use a transmission from a Duratec motor.There are also 2 different transmissions, the AX4S and the AX4N. They are not directly interchangeable, and would require a full PCM change as well as axleshafts.The best choice would be to select a vehicle with the same motor and transmission for a trouble free drop in replacement, but it can come from either a Sable or Taurus without any issues.
