any of them,and the transmission mount will also cause that.you can look REAL close at the rubber in the center,and most likely see one or more cracked/split.if never been changed,then there old,16 years old.but not as old as my 93 accord,it's 22.just changed the front dog bone mount.took the bolts loose,it fell apart in my hand in 3 pieces.you can change them yourself,BUT,you need to watch some youtube videos and research BEFORE ATTEMPTING THIS!

Ok. Thank u. So it could be my front engine mount or my transmission mount causing the harsh shifting?

yes.usually it's the front or rear,but could be either or the transmission mount.most, if not all hondas will shift a little harder than any other vehicle,but if you can tell it's worse now(jerking)more,suspect any or all of the above.

Ok. Cuz I was lookn up some things bout my van and came across common issues with them. And harsh shifting was one of them and it said that the front engine mount needed to b replaced. It said something bout vibration in the rear has something to do with the rear mount.

Both, and are very common replacement items. Do not use "cheap" replacement mounts. Spend a little extra and request high quality mounts. They are not all the same.
