exhaust/motor mounts???

Hey yall,
As I'm in 1st gear going on a roll, my engine shakes violently. It does this between 1-2500rpm. I would need to reach 3000rpm before releasing the clutch for it not to shake. Could this be my motor/trans mounts?? It's annoying the heck out of me

Also, I can hear and feel my exhaust rattle as well. Could this be exhaust leak or a loose bracket??

Re: exhaust/motor mounts???

I did a test drive on this ghetto car dealership before (it was a BMW 3 series convertible) and everytime we revved and it switched gears the engine would feel like it was dropping. Found out it was the motor mounts that pretty much weren't even there.

That story might not help you but anyways. You could lift your car to check your exhaust. Might be a hole because you'll feel it on low revs. Either way, I'd get the car checked out since I doubt you'll be able to figure it out yourself.
