How will I know if 1 of the engin mountings broke or collapsed


If the car only swerves briefly it is probably an engine mounting but if the car keeps steering to one side with constant power, the problem could be suspension related.

Another sign of a faulty engine mounting is when the car vibrates from side to side under a certain constant power load, usually very low power like on a slight downhill. Accelerating ******* an uneven road surface with faulty engine mountings can result in a "stop-and-jump" feeling of the vehicle.

The best way might be to open the bonnet and with the brakes applied. let someone put power on first gear and next, on reverse. Check how much the engine moves. The engine should never pull to one side, but only upwards or downwards. In your case, the car pulled to the right when the engine braked the wheels. That means the engine will pull to the right of the car when the power is applied in reverse, if the engine mounting is faulty.

Diagnois ford territory engine mount vibration


u can do this 2 ways.tranny mounts, have someone get in the car,holdbreak,put in gear,slightly ascelarate the throttle and watch the engine .in drive engine will travel forward and vise versa in reverse.believe me, if u have any bad u will think the motor is tryin to jump out. upper mount check/ 9 out of 10 times,it feels like u are in a popcorn machine when u come to a complete stop ildeing in gear, take a small floorjack and place it under the oilpan again have someone in the car . start and put in gear, just let it idle,and slightly raise just the motor and see if the vibration goes away ./ note,be sure to have a small piece of wood between jack an oilpan.

Liter engine automatic


you probably have a bad motor mount. Look under the hood, passenger side of engine compartment cast iron mount with rubber insert. Is the rubber insert worn visually inspecting. If you cannot tell, have a friend start the car, emergency brake on, foot on brake, shift from park to drive, does the motor jump in the mount? shift from drive to reverse, does it jump again. If so bad mount, local auto repair store should carry. you will have to jack up the engine carefully not much and not directly on oil pan, you just have to relieve the weight on the mount to replace. several m10 bolts, 15mm socket to remove. retighten fasteners to 58+/- 9Nm of torque. good luck.

I have a 1999 chevy malibu and it jumps when i put it in gear but then some times it acts normal for a few days then starts jumping again when i put it in drive some times.


Check the engine mounts with the hood open. Have an assistant observe from the side if any of them are loose when putting the engine in R or D with the parking brake and hydraulic brakes on securely. If the engine mounts are good, they will not allow the motor to twist inside of the engine compartment very much, not more than an inch or two, and good engine mounts will not allow any clunking to occur when putting the car into 'gear.'

I HAVE A RENAULT MEGAN COUPE 01 PLATE .WHEN I CHANGE GEAR THE GEAR STICK VIBRATES ALLOT AND MOVES BACK AND FORTH I THOUGHT IT COULD BE THE ENGINE MOUNTS NEED DOING


It does sound like engine mount , if you open the bonnet and get someone to lift the cluch while the handbrake is on, then whilst looking at the engine it should apear jump up on whatever side the mount is broken on. Try this in reverse and 1st gear try to avoid stalling the car and once you have confermed the fault avoid contiually jumping the engine as it can damage other engine mounts/parts.

check front motor mounts. Hold brake and put in reverse then accelerate and let up on gas. do yhe same in forward gear.if you hear a thud a motor mount is broken with hood open you can see the motor lift up.. Acceleration causes engine to lift and drop. good luck

My car jumps when I put it into gear, but it drives fine.


open your hood, have someone shift from reverse to drive with the parking brake set and watch how much the engine moves, my suspicion is that one or more of the engine mounts are broken, making it look like the engine wants to jump out of its 'home'- moving more the an inch or so then going into gear...pinpoint the broken mount and replace. :)
