How much do you love your car? Is it a love beyond making sure you change your oil on time? Or even beyond splurging on the highest quality parts? That’s the kind of love that never overlooks the small, crucial details. You never take your car through a car wash — it’s a hand wash or bust kind of love.
But what about the acts of love that you can’t show off? What type of transmission mount is holding your most vital parts together in the car or truck you love? Sometimes when you’re rushing to get your vehicle, you might not think twice about these choices. But if you risk details like this, it could be the end of a beautiful love story. Keep reading to see why true car lovers don’t dismiss the important pieces.
Why Should you Worry about your Transmission Mount?
It seems like such an insignificant part of your vehicle’s anatomy. Often overlooked as something you can buy used or at a discount, this part is key to how smooth and safe your ride is.
The wrong transmission mount can create driveline noise when starting out or accelerating, or it can affect the operation of your clutch or gear shift linkage. Mounts deteriorate over time and with added mileage, so it’s not unusual to find one or more broken or collapsed mounts in high-mileage vehicles. If one transmission mount has failed, chances are the others are near the end of their life and should be replaced as a set.
The engine and transmission mounts hold and support the powertrain while isolating the vibrations produced by the powertrain from the chassis. On rear-wheel drive (RWD) cars and trucks, there is usually a pair of motor mounts on each side of the engine to provide support, and a single mount under the back of the transmission. The rear mount is most commonly part of a bolt-in crossmember support.
On a front-wheel drive (FWD) car, truck, or minivan with transverse-mounted engines, there is a left and right engine/transmission mount, and a third mount above or below to triangulate support. Upper engine mounts are referred to as “struts,” because they stop the engine from rocking back and forth as the vehicle accelerates and decelerates. Upper mounts usually have a significant bushing on each end, with one bushing attached to the engine and the other to the radiator crossmember support.
