TRANSMISSION NOT SITTING STRAIGHT BEHIND THE ENGINE.

1997 Mitsubishi Montero • 134,200 miles

The manual transmission looks like it is slightly tilted to the right visually. I can also feel it in the stick, touching the shifthole side. Never dealt with something like this. Help please : (

Additionally the stick moves slightly right when starting to drive in 1st gear, and slightly left when going in reverse? Broken tranny mount?

I would check for bad transmission mounts and bad engine mounts.

Engine mounts were just replaced 3000 miles ago, the engine sits straight and does not move much when reved
