messed up dogbone mount point on tranny
i just bought an 04 svt and i found this tonight. someone jerry rigged it and i rock the whole engine with ease. it looks like someone did a terible job of re drilling the hole and messed up the whole mount

That's going to be a mechanic fix and see what they can tell you. That's not a DIY fix at all.

That looks like a mechanic fix. Hope a new trans is not needed.

Wow ! Hope you don't need a new transmission , I didn't even dare to try something like that in my old escort.

Looks like ready-rod.
Pull it out and see if you can just get by using a bigger rod.

The PO must have been a real smart person [facepalm]
