You need to open the hood. You can have someone stand by the fender and look at the engine while you do this test. Now start the engine and put it into drive gear, apply the brake and step on the accelerator pedal to bring the RPM up a little. The helper must watch how much the engine as it lifts or twists. More than an inch or two you have a broken mount. Now do the same thing in reverse gear to check the other side. This vehicle is a rear wheel drive and will have 3 motor mounts. Left , right (both under the exhaust manifolds) and a rear mount at the rear of the transmission. This mount should be visually checked as well. I hope this helps.

How do i replace the motor mounts on my 1994 crown

I can only forewarn you about several things to watch for in hope of providing you with something to prevent you from breaking something.
You must also consider loosening the transmission mounts to free up the entire drivetrain. There may be some clearance problems at the rear of the motor and the Radiator hoses may not stretch, nor may the fixed A/C lines to the front A/C cooler allow much travel space.
The oil pan is not a lifting point, nor is the crankshaft pulley. The exhaust system is not flexible either.
Your best bet is to look at the actual motor mount and see whether the mount is flush or has protruding studs. Flush shaped will be easier to handle. An 1/4 inch of clearance would allow you to slide parts through the opening.
You could still get another Expert to answer. I owned a 1994 Crown Vic and was underneath it many times, but never changed a motor mount on it.

'95 Ford Crown VIctoria left rear door motor runs but window will not go up and down.

It sounds like the power window motor is still running but you have a problem with the regulator arm. If you remove the door trim panel and water shield you can have a look to see where it has been disconnected from the motor or if the regulator arm itself is broken.

Transmission Mount is broken

Check the frame crossmember at the mount. If it looks like the crossmember can be unbolted, it should be a simple job. You would remove the crossmember while supporting the tailshaft. Then unbolt the trans mount from the transmission, change out the parts and reinstall. Or have a shop put it on a lift and change it out in less than an hour.
