Angry In between a whine & winding noise, almost a hot rod sound...running very rough

Hello I have a 2007 Touring edition with 65,000 miles, automatic. Short history on vehicle, in April the crank shaft seal blew causing a crack in my engine block. Thank goodness the 8 yr 80000 powertrain through Chrysler covered that. I had a very bad shaking problem recently so both front top and bottom motor mounts were replaced, they were basically metal to metal and the motor was moving a less than desirable amount....close to 1/2 foot.

I heard a strange pop before motor mounts were replaced but even after, I still have the following problem although shaking has decreased tremendously. The gas pedal feels very shaky and I hear a very strange stated, in between a winding noise and a whining noise ( I know, bad explanation) almost but not quite a grinding noise. It almost sounds like a hot rod I guess, kind of. I did the 3 key turn code reading trick and no codes came up. I am at a total loss as to what could be wrong but I know it is not driving the same, as a owner/lover I have gotten use to how it drives and feels. Any help would be appreciated.
