Hello, Engine mounts and transmission mounts are distinctly different components, although they both serve to achieve the same purpose which is to prevent excessive vibration. Engine mounts are more substantial in nature as they are designed to absorb vibration more so than transmission mounts. Engine mounts are made of rubber and steel designed to absorb the impact of the vibration that a rotating assembly inside an engine will generate. Transmission mounts also perform the same function, which is to secure the transmission in place within the frame of the vehicle.
