1997 Ford Taurus Q&A
1997 Ford Taurus Question: transaxle mount and engine mounts
On a transverse engine it is usually the front mount that wears as the engine wants to lift of the front mount as car is put in gear to move forward. - patrick mannion
I would suggest replace the front mount as well. It should be a hydraulic mount. The front mount is the one that normally goes bad as Patrick is correct himself. - candaautomotive
it is bad enough to cause exhaust system to rattle.
