put a floorjack with woodblock under the oil pan to find out the transmission and motor mounts have gone bad~ lookin' it up, you could just replace the dirtyrotten rubber piece...looks like~

thanks..will have my friend check this out.......i have had so much replaced already...just did not figure another major problem so soon! I am almost 70 and do not need this repair cost....Looking like I might have to sell this little jewel this fall.......I seem to have racked up a couple of tickets......and my auto insurance has increased too high......does not make sense..........I am a safe driver.......police just seem to think young chics driving this car or a undocumented alien driving it..CAN YOU IMANGINE THE LOOKS I GET WHEN THEY FIND AN OLD GRANMA DRIVING THIS CAR> NOT NICE. THANKS

Hey, who cares WHAT 'they' think...as I get older am finding that NO ONE wants to listen to the Ole Judge_roy (Javed N Qureshi --from Pakistan, Milwaukee) and whether of not they take my advise or leave it, really does not matter...we are rewarded in reputation points...(not dum-dum pops)....since diagnosed with MS they won't let me work...but am able to share my Engineering Background and Mechanic experience...tougher and more competitive than one may imagine~ ainahey?

good luck hippichic61...used to really like the hippies until I had to service their cars in Berkeley 93-96...Nude people would saunter down Telegraph avenue as if nothing strange is about~ Fix a hippie's brakes for a hit of the good stuff~...Sunday duty...cars would get towed in and the owner would be tapping their foot lording over you the whole time...no room for error there~

my '59 Pontiac had a flaw where the motor mount caused the linkage to put the carburetor on FULL and all you could do was turn the key or take it out of gear~ turning the motor off dunked it back down, but a MOTOR mount could have caused someone's DEATH if they weren't dealt with~
