Default What is the sign of worn out engine mount?

I hear this clunking noise from underneath the car and the movement can be felt via brake pedal... it could mean that something is moving around. Could that be due to work out engine mount? this is from my beater - 92 Miata =)

When do you hear the clunk? If it's engine mounts you'll probably hear it when the engine moves, such as when you first get on the throttle or first release it. If you hear it when going over bumps it's probably suspension-related.

Possibly, if the internal valves in the struts are bad or the fluid has leaked out they may clunk over bumps. Bad upper strut mounts can cause this also.
