An engine mount is the part that holds the engine in your car. In most cars, an engine and transmission are bolted together and held in place by three or four mounts. The mount that holds the transmission is called the transmission mount, others are referred to as engine mounts.
Here are some of the benefits of using good quality, rubber engine mounts:
- Reduce excess vibration and noise
- Keep engines from sustaining damage
- Extend the lifespan of the engine and connected sensor components
- Keep transmission and other vital parts from sustaining damage
Engine mounts are designed to absorb the energy of the system and become worn out after a while and may require a replacement. It’s important not to wait to replace your engine mount or your vehicle may be damaged.
