Frequently asked questions about replacing engine mounts

What can happen if engine mounts fail?

Engine mounts prevent transmission of vibrations caused by engine operation to the car body and components. In addition, they reliably secure the engine. Accordingly, if the mounts are faulty, all vibrations, shocks and impacts will be transmitted to the car body. This not only affects the driving comfort, but also reduces the operational life of many important car parts and assemblies.

Can I use a car with a broken engine mount?

It all depends on the nature of the malfunction. Usually, engine mounts wear out gradually. For some time, their wear will be manifested in increased vibrations transmitted to the car body, steering wheel, and gear lever. These signs do not mean the components have to be changed urgently, but indicate that this will be required soon enough. If the rubber element is completely destroyed, the metal part is detached, or the fasteners are torn off, then the mounts should be replaced immediately because in this case driving can lead to the breakdown of important components and assemblies, such as CV joints.

Is it difficult to change the engine mounts?

The complexity of the job depends on the car design, engine compartment layout, and the location of the part to be replaced. For example, the upper mounts are located in a relatively accessible place, so there is usually no problem with replacing them. In the case of the lower mounts, the engine needs to be jacked up to access them. Video tutorials from AUTODOC CLUB will help you handle the replacement yourself.
