I have a 2005 mustang v6 that has 200,000 miles that when idling in gear has a vibration noise coming from the passenger side of the car. I suspect it’s a motor mount but I’m not sure. Is there any way to make sure it’s the problem before spending 120$ on a new one?

I did what you suggested, engine isn’t moving. Any other ideas what it could be? The sound only comes on when in drive/reverse and idling. As soon as you you start letting off the brakes the noise immediately goes away

Open hood shift into first with break on, give it some cas if motor moves it's a mount

If the mount is bad then the engine will flex in revving it. It has to be replaced or you risk damaging the rest of the drivetrain. If it's not the mount, it could be a loose exhaust pipe? Again, if the mount is bad, replace it. You don't want your engine hitting your hood when you accelerate.
