yes. with the e-brake engaged and the hood open, with the engine running, put the vehicle into "D" for auto or 1st for standard. SLOWLY let out the clutch, but NOT all the way, the engine will rock in a direction if the mount is bad, ANY movement more than a 1/2 inch or so in either direction is bad. put it in reverse to check the other mount. id tell you which diagnoses which, but im tired and not thinking too straight. someone will tell you after i post this anyways.

Im having also problems with the motor mounts, i went to autozone, they have them for 17 dollars but the upper right one is 170 dollars, how much could be the labor cost to change them, if anybody knows?
