01 Focus SE and the Diabolical Clunking Noise - Motor Mount?

So I am getting this really nasty noise coming from the passenger side of the engine. I pulled the valve cover and everything appears to be in order there. Could this be the passenger motor mount? There is a clunking noise which follows engine speed. Also the car can barely move itself. You have to give it some throttle to get it to start, and I was about at WOT backing up my driveway.

If it is the mount, is this the part "Mount, focus, front - 2.0l sohc - 2.0L SOHC" on the Tousley page what I need? There is no exploded diagram for it. Car is an 01 SE w/ about 120k on it.

Thanks folks.

Motor mount? Ha! you wish it was that simple.



Sounds like a victom of valve seat drop.
Can't be a motor mount. Is it a clunking noise or is it engine knock?
It's the sound of a valve seat bouncing around the cylender.

:p
