    One of the best feelings I know; diagnose a car's problems and get it fixed (the first time) at a savings.  Good show, old chap!

    Its the lower Isolator motor mount. Helps with handling the torque of shifting and engine rotation

    It should be one piece not 4. the pieces are all the rubber that broke down .

    Shifting? What's that? I learned on a VW.  Not many people know how to shift a car anymore. Its a lost art in America.

    Too difficult to send a text, eat a big mac, and shift at the same time.  :s:'(

    Driving used to be interactive. A relationship between driver and car. Now its just push pedal and go. Another car I drove shift on was a Fiat 124 Sport Coup. Maybe if someone determined the health bennefits of pushing down a clutch peddal the manual transmission might make a comeback!
