What causes broken motor mounts?
Asked in Auto Parts and Repairs
How can you tell if motor mounts are bad?
If you rev your motor and the motor moves excessively one or both of your motor mounts is broken. Visual inspection is the best method for determining the condition of your mounts. Jack up the car and put it on jack stands. Get underneath and look at each of the mounts. The rubber should not be cracked or missing pieces. Push on the motor with your hand and make sure the rubber is not broken and that both sides ( motor and the part of the chasis where it mounts ) are firmly attached.
