Engine Mounts: Creating an Essential Bridge
The Engine Mounts are also commonly referred to as the Motor Mounts.
The engine in your vehicle is connected in some way, shape or form to several other important parts. This
is where the mounts come into play and at AutoPartsNerd,
we have been in the business for over 40 years and bring you the highest caliber engine and transmission
mounts from exceptional brands including Anchor.
The Engine Mounts serve the same general purpose as
Shock Absorbers. But it's a much simpler design considering that your Motor Mounts consist
of a metal plate that is attached to the
Chassis of the vehicle. Each mount also has a piece of rubber which is there to absorb the vibrations given off
by the engine during normal operation. If it weren't for these mounts, you would probably rely on public transporation
more often. The noise and vibrations would be too much for most people. When these mounts are about to fail, the engine
will have more and more play allowing it to bang into other parts causing exceesive noise and vibrations. This can also
result in damage to other parts if it gets bad enough. If you have any of the warning symptoms,
AutoPartsNerd carries a nice selection of mounts from the best brands.

Engine Mount Failure: A bad or broken Engine Mount can lead to additional damage to your vehicle.
While it can sometimes be difficult for drivers to determine if they have a bad engine mount,
there are a some common symptoms that can confirm if it's damaged.
If your motor mounts or transmission mounts are worn out or broken, you will
want to get it resolved sooner rather than later. Over time, a bad engine
mount creates an excessive amount of vibration. This will begin to wear out
other areas of your vehicle, especially some of your exhaust parts. The extra vibration and
twisting of your engine can cause the exhaust to rattle and possibly leak.
It has been even known to damage throttle linkages which can result
in unintended acceleration. Driving with a worn or broken engine mount also puts
extra responsibility on the transmission mounts which can damage the driveshaft.
Engine Mount Failure Symptoms:
When an engine mount (or transmission mount) is worn out or broken and needs to
be replaced, there are some warning signs that can indicate you have a problem.
This includes feeling an increase in engine noise along with vibration.
But an increase in pedal pressure or a slower engine response due to a binding of the linkages is
another symptom that should get your attention.
Engine Mount Replacement: Unfortunately, due to the location,
an engine mount is not the easiest part to replace. While installing the engine mount
is relatively simple, the hard part is getting to it and creating enough room to install the engine
mount. You will need to move the engine in order to create sufficient room.
