Q: Transmission mount

asked by on

When I put my car in drive it makes a loud thump and feels like something is dropping, does this sound like a transmission mount?

Depending on the type of car and transmission and engine mount locations you may have a broken engine or transmission mount. Have a mechanic like one from YourMechanic inspect and test the mounts to see what one is broken.
