Q: Can a side engine mount leak? 2003 Acura MDX

asked by on

My Acura MDX 2003 has fluid leak around passenger side engine mount. Color like oil, but a different smell. Is this liquid-filled mount? There are no power steering leaks. All hoses and power steering reservoir that located in the same area are clean. Thanks, Nick

My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there - yes, the motor mounts in your Acura are hydraulic, containing a small amount of fluid, and can leak if damaged, or if they fail. I would recommend an engine mount replacement by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
