Title: Know the Signs of a Bad Engine Mount in your Car


1
Know the Signs of a Bad Engine Mount in Your Car
2
The engine mounts are made out of rubber and
metal in order to prevent excessive engine
movement during driving.
3
The main purpose of the engine mount is to absorb
engine vibration, engine torque, and also support
the engine.
4
As the engine mounts help to reduce the excessive
vibration and noise, therefore when they go bad,
the car shows several symptoms to make you aware
of possible problems.
5
Here are some of the frequent signs of a bad
engine mount in your car
-Movement of the engine -A misalinged
engine -Severe Vibrations -Loud Noise
6
Movement of the engine
7
A common symptom of bad engine mounts is an
engine that moves in the engine bay.
8
When the mounts are worn or broken, then the
engine gets the chance to move in all directions
in the engine bay and even causes damage to other
components.
9
The movement is more pronounced, especially when
you accelerate to higher speeds and is also
accompanied by different noises.
10
A misaligned engine
11
A misaligned engine is the one which is tilted
towards one side more than the other side and it
is a clear indication of bad mounts.
12
The engine should be installed on one level,
without having a varying height throughout its
cross section.
13
Worn mounts become squashed and smaller in size,
leading to the misalignment of the engine.
14
Severe vibrations
15
When the rubber or dampening fluid of the engine
mount wears out, it greatly affects the ability
to absorb the vibrations and maintain a stability.
16
The broken engine mounts are no longer capable of
absorbing the vibrations from the engine as the
rubber guards are ineffective.
17
Sometimes, the driver does not notice the
vibrations unless there is one passenger seated
by his side who feels the severe vibrations.
18
Loud sounds
19
One of the most common symptoms associated with
bad engine mounts are the loud sounds that
origins from the engine bay.
20
This is mainly in the form of clanking or
banging sounds which gives a clear thought of the
weight of the engine being shifted excessively to
the point of contact.
21
These sounds are fairly audible even in case of
slight acceleration and also when you accelerate
the engine to higher speeds.
