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.
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!
