The reason they work with the engine OFF is that they are not spinning so there is nothing stopping them moving in and out of position.
Ill need a bit more information to give you more help.
Is this a manual or an automatic vehicle? Does it do anything else when the engine is running? Does it make noises like grinding or crunching? Does it jump roughly as it goes into gear or slip into gear? Please comment below and I'll try to help you more.

it is good mechanical practice to replace all bolts that are operating under tension. That includes con rod bolts , big end bolts fly wheel bolts , head studs and crank shaft bolt. Some manuals recommend the replacement of cam shaft sprocket bolts as well. This practice is recommended where the engine is driven at high rpms. It is recommended practice because the tension effect actually twists the bolt and this combined with the tensional stress makes the bolts prone to failure. As it adds considerably to the cost many mechanics do not follow the practice but will charge for the new bolts as well.

there will be no movement in the mounts unless the suspension rubber/ bushes are worn out . There will be no figures as it amounts to the fact that if you can move them then they will need replacing. take it to an accredited suspension shop and have a safety check done and have them show you what is worn and needs replacement and calculate how much you will save by doing it yourself against what they will charge for a good -safe-guaranteed job.

This is caused by the display unit slowly failing and it is a common problem on Opel & Vauxhall cars. The internal circuit board is fed by a flat ribbon cable with many tiny connections. Heat, vibration and age will often cause one or two of these connections to fail, which results in dead pixels on your screen. The best solution is to buy a new display unit, although if you research using Google you may find somebody who offers a repair service.
