Engine Mounts

Frequently Asked Questions

As the name suggests, the engine mount is used to support the engine. The engine mount is an essential part for absorbing vibrations and ensuring the long life of your car's engine components.  The engine mount is one of the many silent blocks of your vehicle. There are two main materials: rubber and metal that make up the engine mount. Rubber absorbs shocks while metal supports the weight of the engine.

In general, engine mounts last a very long time, sometimes for the life of the vehicle. However, depending on driving conditions, they can wear out as the miles accumulate. There's no exact time frame for replacing an engine mount, as it depends mainly on your driving style and the roads you drive on. However, the average life of this part is approximately 300,000 kilometers.

On average, an engine mount costs between $20 and $100. However, the price can vary depending on the type of silent block. Then there's the cost of labor, which can also vary widely depending on the model of your car. On average, you should expect to pay between $80 and $500 for an engine mount replacement.

The first step, of course, is to bring your vehicle to a complete stop and then lift it onto the stanchions. This will give you access to the underside of your vehicle. Once that's done, place the jack between the engine and transmission.

Depending on whether you're replacing the right or left side, you'll need to remove different components to gain access.

Once these components are exposed, remove the faulty engine mount. To do this, carefully remove the bolts holding it in place.

Once you've done this, you can install your new component. To do this, insert it in the appropriate location, replace the fasteners, and tighten. The replacement is now complete.

Engine mount wear is most often detected by listening for vehicle noise and vibration while driving. When engine mounts fail, the following signs can be observed

1. Jolts when starting or accelerating;

2. Your gears jump during these jolts;

3. You feel vibrations in your steering wheel;

4. Your clutch chatters when you shift gears.

5. Excessive noise: Whether worn out or completely broken, an engine mount that is not working properly creates a lot of vibration and noise.
