Probably the engine mounts. The 9k transmission was/is more robust than that in the C900 though not GM stout. Look for tranny fluid changes on the record. The S is not as hard don the tranny as a T. If it is well maintained, it should be a good car. Probably be in for some maintenance if it has not been maintained (in addition to the engine mounts) Front main seal, harmonic balancer, Front ball joints, a-arm bushings, serpentine belt tensioner, heater core, heater fan motor. Look to ensure that these are good. If it smells like maple syrup when you turn on the heat, it is a heater core waiting to be replaced. Some are very afraid of these. They are not that hard to do, but the core is expensive. The fan motor should be replaced at the same time. Get one and welcome to the continuum.
