Engine mounts hold the engine to the car body, or to the engine cradle (sub-frame) of the car. Usually, there are 3 or 4 engine mounts in a vehicle car, although, they can also be duplicate mounts. For example, many of the left & right mounts in the pickups which Thailand is famous for are duplicate mounts.
Technically, engine mounts & transmission mounts are different. Transmission mounts hold the transmission; however, it is common to refer to all as ‘engine mounts’. If you are from the USA, you would generally refer to mounts as “motor mounts”.
When the engine mounts in your car have failed, you will definitely feel it. Much of the NVH from your engine will transfer to you as the driver.
You should always replace them at a skilled service center as soon as possible. It is best to replace all your mounts at the same time even though only one or two of them might have failed.
As with all our parts, Mchanix uses high quality materials such as virgin natural rubber to manufacture premium quality mounts which isolate NVH, supporting great driving comfort and vehicle safety.
