When the car is cool it runs great but after u use the brakes a few times they lock up

clutch does not engadge

My 2004 Acura TL just rolled to 90,000 miles and after taking in in several times for front end noise without any successful diagnosis, I determined that it must be a motor mount issue. I took it in and was told that all but one of the engine mounts and all but one of the transmission mounts had failed. I have NEVER experienced a motor mount failure on any car (I am 49 years old) and when I finally purchased my first new car (2004 Acura TL) for $36,000, I have this level of failure. Although I love the body style and overall design, this car from a quality stand point has been a sad disaapointment.

I replaced rotors in December and had the drums turned. I also had Discount Auto check to make sure tires were balanced. Anything else that could cause the problem? I was told last year that I needed to replaced the rack and pinion.

Engine revs high when I start the ignition, idle at a traffic light and sometimes while driving. When I'm driving it seems as if the drive chokes and catches up with itself. It's done this for years but it's very noticeable and more consistent now.

As far as I know the timing belt has never been changed. Should I worry?

I have replaced one catalytic converter and still failed Ca. smog. The second is being replaced but in the meantime my distributer went out due to some sloppiness in a ????? I was told that it will continue to ruin distributers until I have it repaired to the tune of $3,000. I was in shock and did not ask enough questions. Can this be explained? I am already spending $3,500 on the converters.
