Engine mounts might be overlooked when it comes to vehicular maintenance. But they’re one of the most important components that keep your engine running smoothly. These mounts are shock absorbers designed to keep your engine in place, preventing excessive lurching and unnecessary vibrations while you drive. Tenacity provides a comprehensive guide to how engine mounts work, how to detect engine mount damage, and how you can tell that the mounts are due for a replacement.

How does an engine mount work?

Engine mounts are essentially shock absorbers that prevent your engine from bumping into the transmission and other components that keep your vehicle running. They have a metal frame that provides sturdy support and protection. They also have a rubber component that dampens vibrations and prevents metal-to-metal contact between your engine and the vehicle body. While engine mounts don’t require maintenance work or regular servicing, you still have to look out for signs of wear or damage. Signs of wear start to show within 5 to 7 years. Meanwhile, check for engine mount damages if you encounter road traffic accidents.
