Yep, motor mount.

That black bit is a top for the mount. you can take off the top and see the condition the mount is in. If its popping out and bubbly then its bad. If its solid and flat then you're good! [like]
its filled with oil too , so if its leaking then its bad

Top passenger side engine mount. Once it begins to leak oil (grease) it will shake your buns off in the driver's seat, sitting at a light (with your foot down on the brake pedal) while in drive.

Absolutely 100% WRONG. Popping out and bubbly is NORMAL, it will appear to billow up from engine heat and then drops back down flatter when cold, it's technically a balloon that lets the liquid under it expand. It cannot have any leak at ALL. Why the snap-on plastic cover to protect the bladder there.............it is a hydraulic type mount.
