    What are some symptoms of bad motor mounts? Since I bought the blazer it had a feeling of something shifting and clanking up front. Now tonight I was reving the engine some while it was in park, and the front end started bouncing/vibrating untill I started to drive off. Any ideas of what it could be?

    Worn motor mounts, while in park, you should be able to watch the mounts/engine move or jump quite a bit when someone stabs the gas. Another thing to look at is the transmission mount, as they tend to get all oily and seperate/break themselves.

    Sounds to me you just have too much horsepower, am I right?

    Blinker,
    I WISH!!!! It's a stock TBI 350. I'll check the mounts tomorrow.
