My Answer is based on clues, symptoms and info in your question. Please include everything. Thanks
Do you get a clunk when shifting to drive or reverse?
yes when going into reverse
cam you rock the gas peddle on and off in drive and hear a clunck I am thinking bad motor mount
you would have to hear it up front. check mounts for loose or broken pads
no the engine will just torque up not like a bad motor mount
rubber bushing on mount
have you done a visual on mounts yet
yes there original but still good
Is it missing?
i dont think so, it holds a rpm fine and it doesnt want to die and the problem only showes it self when ideling (in gear not not)
you may be idleing to low.
does it seem the same as before idle rpms?
If so I believe your harmonic balancer needs reblacing.
low idle is aprox 600-650, im not quite clear on "does it seem the same as before idle rpms?"
has idle gone down? or idle rpms same?
no they have allways been the same
If idle is same then i would go with a fluidampr harmnonic balancer. it will run as smooth as a 6.0
you notic smoother acceration also
okay how difficult would insatlling that be, im mechanicaly inclined but i dont have maeny specilized tools
this is a best case senerio as
