passenger motor mount. does the car vibrate a good amount or no? I know the cover can be removed.

Yes it's fluid filled, looks like oil if you ever have a leak.

Drained the coolant just in case, it looks good, not brown at all. I'll get the new mount and tackle this weekend. Thanks everyone.

yup no problem Im pretty familiar with the engine. youll have to move the reservoir out of the way to replace it.

coolant normally looks brown through those containers too.

I also replaced mine its easier to remove the reservoir tank and unscrew the power steering from the firewall and move it to the side , then you'll have a lot of room to work made it easy for me

Will bad mount cause no-start?

When we started our 2004 Focus last night, I heard something rattling from under the hood, but we went ahead anyway - this led us stuck on road after 10 min. Today when I checked under the hood, I found the engine mount is bad and I saw quite a lot oil spill under the coolant tank. But I feel the bad engine mount would not case no-start? When I try to start the car, the engine tries to start and the drive belt can move a little bit, occasionally, the engine can even start but stop immediately. Any thoughts? Appreciate any help!
