Question about 2006 Ford Taurus

Engine mount brackets

We bought our car about 4 mo ago and all of a sudden this morning found the engine mount brackets?? were snapped. I started to drive and found the exhaust/muffler hanging near the front. That's when my husb. looked under the hood. We called the dealer and they "will get back w/us", my question; is this normal or should we push to have the dealer fix.

No... this is not normal at all, not for your car. I have seen poorly modified race and drag cars snap motor mounts, but your car absolutely should not do this. If you still have warranty it should be fixed by them free of cost right away. From what I see in the top picture it might be a common problem with your type of vehicle, those engine mounts look pretty thin compared to what i'm used to see.

Bolts to engine bracket snapped in engine block


if it was the right hand mount,it's common.Mine did it and there was 2 options.Get them drilled and tapped out or pull the engine out.Sorry to tell you this.What I did was lift the motor with a jack.Get the old engine mount off.I paid a guy to come in and what he did was genius.With mirrors and some really good air drills,he drilled the broken bolts(started with dies to get a start on the bolts).Drilled the bolts.It took about 4 drill bits because they burnt out very easily.Then put in ezi-outs to get them out.It took about 2 hours and before he started,the wd40 went on the bolts about 12 hours prior.He said it helped a lot.It was a fiddly job but this guy had the gear to do it.It cost $120.A lot cheaper than an engine pull.(the new engine bolts cost $6.)They main bit was to get a spinning metal die in there to give the drill a good start.Mate.I hope this helps

I have a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE. Two days ago I started to hear a quiet knock on the bottom of the engine. I can also feel is slightly on the floor near my feet. I usually happens when I hit 40-45 mph....


If if feels like a none rhythmic knock it could indicate a lose or broken muffler mount. If you hear it at acceleration or when the engine is under load it could also be a broken engine mount. The muffler mount is easy to replace provided the brackets are not rusted away. The engine mount will require the engine weight lifted of the mount to replace it. Good Luck.
