Engine movement???

When I shift from 1st to 2nd at a high rpm i hear a loud clunk and it feels like the eng/trans is shifting. I'm thinking a motor mount is broken??? I am taking the car in for the flywheel issue and will tell them about this, but I just wanted to see if anyone else has experianced something like this.

Well I've not experienced that problem, and I was wondering if it could be something other than the engine mount. I dunno, you are doing the best thing by taken it in. Lets us know what is said.

Note: I'm starting to think the Dual Mass Flywheel in the SVTF, is one of those what was Ford thinking.

There are some motor mounts on www.focussport.com

There is also a transverse tranny mount thats available as either a mount or bushing set.

If the engine mount was damaged the engine would fall to the right and contact the chassis, I have seen this.

What was your car doing?

My car is going in the shop on Mon. I am also going to tell them about a squeaking and creaking noise thats comming from all 4 corners of the supension when I go over speedbumps. I heard there is a TSB for all foci from 2000-2002 - not sure if it covers SVTF.

I just hear a loud cu-chunk and the front end seems to hit the firewall. On my old 65 chevelle I had a broken engine mount, when in nuetral with the hood up I could see the motor rise up. I can 't tell with the focus.
