yes i know it is bad practice to run my escort without motor mounts, well today i had some tools under it i couldnt get and some oil to clean up, well i needed to move the car 5 feet, well i started it up, and the motor vibrates to say the least. but anyway, it only runs for 10 seconds, makes a lould BANG and shuts off. It took me 3 start-ups to move the car.

So i am wondering, if the mounts are removed. would the engine kill itself from the vibration?

im getting new mounts today anyway

good way to kill your motor and or tranny - motor mounts keep everything lined up - as soon as it was put in gear, Im sure it did damage.
