No pwer and stalls 2002 saturn sl1

this car …

ok it runs rough and seems stalls when the car is in gear and say going up hill or is reverse …engine looks like it is shaking as well

motor mount problem ??? and if so how much to repair approx ??

Do you have a check engine light? How about a code P0507? While idling, try spraying some carburetor cleaner or WD40 around the intake manifold gasket at the number 1 cylinder and see if the idle changes. Any change indicates the intake manifold gasket has pulled out of place, a common problem with this engine. You have the symptoms.
