Loose Trans Mount Bolt

Would this bolt being loose cause driveline vibrations? If so, how tight does it need to be?

thats just to stop the torque from ripping the other rubber mount apart. normal to have a little play there

Driveline vibe might be a stuck front axle disconect? Your driveshaft looks pretty flat so unless your u-joints are bad i wouldn't worry about that

The vibration is only when I give it some gas and worse under hard acceleration (it goes away when coasting). I've checked the U-joints over and over, so I don't think that's it.

There is supposed to be some slop in that bolt. As said above, it's just for the torque. If there's a little slop it's ok.

Mounting bolts are on there. There are just recessed.

I concur, there should be a rubber brickish thing(best way i can describe it) under the transmission adjacent to that bolt.

you have it, its more under the tcase... you can see the recessed bolts from the bottom.

These guys don't know what they're talking about. You would know if it was missing everytime you accelerated and the shifter broke your knee cap.
