Q: Engine mount

asked by on February 12, 2016

I may need a new engine mount.

Hello. A broken or worn engine mount will cause the engine to vibrate excessively. You may also hear a loud bang when the car shifts gears. A certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, should inspect the engine mount in order to determine whether your engine mount is the cause of your problem or if another type of repair is necessary. They will also be able to replace your engine mount if necessary.
