The car drove fine in the morning. At the end of the work day, I cranked it, it was fine for about a minute, and then the idling became progressively rougher. I thought the car would stall, but it did not. It was idling so rough that I was concerned that I would damage the car. We took it to the mechanic who diagnosed worn upper engine mounts. They were replaced, and problem fixed!
Failure identified at point of failed inspection. Symptoms were evident in retrospect at about 100K miles but not followed-up. Replacement of Mount required at cost of $175.00.
