Because of torque movement the engine and trans mounts are rubber encased inside metal holders or brackets, if rubber gets too old, cracked, oil soaked they break down and allow too much movement which can cause components to be impacted by the engine when moves too much. Shifting from park to either gear or rev to drive and vice versa and accel and decel cause this engine torque movement.
