WHAT? Sounds like Yoda talking. I think your asking if all 3 motor mounts should be changed. You can easily check at least two of the mounts to see if the rubber inserts have deteriorated. Here's a couple You Tube video's to show you how to check or replace the mounts.

Cool Re: Motor sound Vibration

If it were the motor mounts, you might even get a little "clunk" when you put the tranny in "Drive", or start up from being stopped.
Had that on mine last fall.

The real mount is the one in the frame rail on the passenger side. You can keep changing the upper and lower torque arms 'til you're broke, but until you replace the middle one, you're wasting time and money.
Mine was really bad, but there was no clunking, and the vibration was just annoying, not that bad. And an expensive job, I can see why many people sell their car rather than pay for it.

When you replace the upper and lower torque mounts there are some that are not aware of the factory alignment procedure that must be done after the torque mounts are replaced. Without the alignment procedure being completed there is a good possibility of vibration issues.

You are useing an Internet translator

Can someone post either in the Haynes, Chilton or better yet the Factory Service Manual the proper way to instal and align the engine mounts.

Sorry I am on the IPad and don't have access to my FSM files and pictures.

Those old video's are "lame"!
