Is it an easy or moderate task to replace the tranny mount in a 2002 ZX5? I am pretty sure that is what the noise is coming from. If I reverse then put it in first and pull away I can feel a thud and it makes a slight thud. It I am in first or second and I let off and coast then reapply the gas it does the same thing only harder. is it the tranny mount or is it something else? If it is, is it easy to change? Is it something I will have to take to the dealer? If not, where can I find a guide to help me? I am not afraid to do it on my own...

It's pretty easy to put your car on ramps and take a look to confirm - it's in the middle of the car connecting the transmission to the subframe. It's impossible to miss.

You need to put the car on jackstands, and have a jack available to support the transmission while you swap out the mount. It's not difficult to do, but it will be reluctant to come out and may require a bit of prying and hammering to work it out.

Go pick up a Haynes shop manual, and it'll give you decent guidance.
