The engine mount looks toasted. (1st video)

The engine torque strut (2nd video) is hard to say in the picture. But it is easy to change

I figured the Center Mount was just utterly destroyed. That is probably my whole Vibration issue right there. Doesn't look like there is any support.

For the other one, I think it's bad but not as bad. There is still rubber on that one. lol. But, I did notice that 2 parts of it do not touch the center of the mount/strut. One piece of rubber is fully connected to the middle (where the screw goes) and the other 2/3 parts are not.

I had the upper and lower torque struts replaced on my PT today, both had torn webs. On the upper it was the front web, that you can't see in your video because it is blocked by the mounting bracket, that was torn.



This tear was allowing enough movement that the bracket was making a clunking or knocking sound when shifting into gear.



After replacement, all is quiet.

Well, I am hopeful that replacing these two Mounts/torque struts, will fix the issue. Also be checking the tranny mount which I forgot to look at while I was out there.
