2 mounts replace...

Hello all,
I have just recently replaced my passenger mount as well as the dogbone mount on my 01 zetec. My idle while in Park, Reverse and neutral are fantastic, just like a new car. However, I still notice vibes at idle while in Drive. I figure that the engine is tilted in the opposite direction while in Drive so i guess what Im asking is could the 3rd mount (top trans mount) help with the vibration in drive that much to where it would feel like it does when in Park? Could this be another issue? Its not a bad vibration but I can still feel it in the cabin. I replace the other two mounts with stock replacements, no poly inserts. Thanks!

If your trans mount is that bad id change it, its not expensive at all either

Yeah, and its easy too, but does the Trans mount really affect idle that much?

If its bad it can, and harsh shifting can occur too
