Most (not always) of the time, when a mount goes bad, you'll feel it most when shifting gears, such as park to reverse, or reverse to drive. You can also feel a bad one, under sudden heavy acceleration...Most of the time, while cruising, there is less stress, and not so noticable...But it's also possible to have a bad mount put the axles in a bind, effecting the way it drives and pulls off..

Would there be a vibration in steering,pedals, and floor?

vibration in the steering, pedals and floor could just be a tire not balanced, or a car in need of alignment.

try reving up the engine with the car in park and see if there is any unusual movement.

Update:engine Mount/grand Am3.4l

When in drive and holding one foot on the brake pedal,the engine does lift approx. 3-4 inches when pushing on the gas pedal. Also, there is a growling noise when driving. Which seems to get worse as I speed up ( I keep it between 60-65 mph on the hwy.) The noise starts as soon as it is placed in reverse, and in drive. In the last week I have had the intake manifold casket replaced, fuel filter, spark plugs, new cooling fan motor,and the tires rotated.
