only when I'm on D and push hard on gas pedal from a complete stop . Not if I accelerate slowly. It sounds like the engine is dropping from car for a moment, but then it drives good.

    Sounds like the tranfer case/front differential is going bad need to have looked at but from your description that is what it sounds like.

    We've replaced several engine mounts in the Quests and Villagers.

    He's right three mounts cost about $300 and the 2 hours of labor. It'll be worth it!
