My first 3G (2000 Gt) did the JUMP when you put it in reverse and it was ::ghey3: I have no clue what it could be and still to this day can not figure it out. Just like you I replaced my motor mounts but it still happened. Well I will say with my 5-Speed 3G it does not do it anymore.

I thought you wanted the truth :) anyways man if you can not figure it out then I would sell the car and get another one while still paying the loan. Best of luck to you!

Your absolutely right your motor mounts are going bad you have 4 of them to get checked out. A good way to see if your engine mounts are shot......

1) Open the hood
2) Have someone sit in the car with their foot on the brake
3) Have them change between reverse and drive
4) and finally while your looking at your engine you may see your engine jerking back and forth

This is not good so i would look ionto getting those mounts changed

You need to have the other three mounts checked as well. Your description in spot on for bad engine mounts. The passenger side mount tends to squeek and/or creek when it has gone bad. I think a bad rear mount tends to make the car "jump" a bit more as the engine isn't stable when it comes to rocking back and forth.
