    Problem Reports

  3. Motor Mount?

    New Members Forum
    I have a 2000 gt and when ever I put it in reverse the engine jumps a little making the cabin jump too. Also when ever I sit in drive the whole car starts shaking. Could it be the motor mounts going bad? It jumps worse after I've been driving for a while.
