Subject: Judder under light Acc/Deceleration on 9000T

Hi again... On my 86 Saab 9000Turbo Manual I sometimes get quite a violent judder (a bit like when you go up hill in too high a gear ,Kangaroo style :) ) when cruising in traffic usually between 20-30mph especially when lifting or very lightly pressing the Accelerator pedal at first I assumed it was my driving because I went from a Auto to a Manual. I now think it maybe a broken lower Engine Mount because there's a small pool of clear thick fluid sitting in the well of it and no noticeable engine/pas leaks. The only thing that's made me think it may not be a lower mount is it doesn't appear to happen for the first 5 mins of driving (when the engines cold).General acceleration and rapid acceleration is fine and smooth its just at the point of lightly resting you're foot on the Gas pedal whilst cruising below 40mph.Any suggestions / experiences with this would be greatly appreciated . , Jason
