A: Based upon what you have described it sound...

Based upon what you have described it sounds like the car has had a variety of problems that you have already fixed. With that being said, it is not unreasonable to suspect that a motor mount could potentially vibrate loose and fall out of the bottom of the vehicle while driving. This is highly unlikely, however it is not impossible. I would suggest having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose and repair.
