Your car needs its engine in order to run properly, and with that said it needs to be placed in your vehicle in the exact right position. All kinds of parts/components are running in and out of the engine, so it can't be bouncing around and moving. That's why engine mounts are important. These mounts are made from steel and rubber and literally keep the engine mounted to the vehicle's frame.

A secondary job of this mount is to absorb the vibrations and shock caused while driving, so the engine doesn’t bounce around excessively. As a safety precaution there are usually a few mounts that way if one breaks the others will take over. There are a number of reasons the engine mount can break and become faulty, especially over time. A good idea is to have the mounts checked from time to time, just to ensure they are still holding things in place, and there are no cracks or weaknesses forming. Should all the mounts break, and your engine is allowed to bounce around, you risk causing all kinds of serious damage to it and the parts around it.

You won’t want to take chances with this issue, instead have it checked out by a professional mechanic the minute you suspect yours may be faulty. Here are some signs that your engine mount may need replacing:

  • If you have a fluid-filled mount (not all are fluid-filled), then you may notice oil start to leak from it. This can signal that it is cracked or broken.

  • When you are driving up a steep hill you may start to notice vibration in the engine area of your car.

  • As you drive your vehicle you may actually feel the engine move around, hear clunking sounds, or bumping. As you put the car into gear, loud noises can occur.

Your engine mount may seem like a small part but it is responsible for a pretty important job. This mount holds your engine in place stopping it from moving, and absorbing shock and vibration. Should this mount break, you risk serious damage to not just your engine but the various parts around it. If you’re experiencing any of the above mentioned symptoms and suspect your engine mount is in need of replacement, get a diagnostic or book an engine mount replacement service with a professional mechanic.

Terry is amazing. I love how he gets into detail on what is going on exactly. I was excited on the day of the inspection for him to actually get the work done. He fixed my overheating issue and changed the engine mount. Huge difference now on how my car runs. Thank you Terry.
