Motor and Transmission Mount Matters

Motor and transmission mounts are simple, but necessary, components. They stabilize the main engine driveshaft. A broken motor and transmission mount can lead to numerous problems. If the transmission mount is busted, there is a loss of stability in the components it supports. This results to increased vibration and noise in the engine, which is then transmitted to the passenger compartment. Misalignment is another problem that arises from a broken transmission mount. Since the mount helps stabilize the vehicle transmission, it mut be aligned properly. Any ill-fiting ink between the transmission and the driveshaft can resultt to costly damage in the driveshaft.

What Purpose Does It Serve?

A motor and transmission mount secures the engine and the transmission to the frame of an automobile. It confines the vibrations within the automobile chassis, so that the shaking won't be felt in the other sections of the vehicle. This is important not just to have a smoother ride, but to protect delicate components from getting damaged.

How Much Does It Cost to Replace a Motor and Transmission Mount?

Considering the kind of vehicle you have and the brand you choose to get the component from, you can find motor and transmission mounts that are priced as low as $50 and as high as $550. If you drive a luxury car, then you might find the motor and transmission mount that you need for your automobile to be in the $300-$500 range. However, if you are just looking to extend the life of an old ride, then you can make do with one that costs even cheaper than $50.

Installation costs may vary depending on where you go to have them installed. But, you can save a lot more money by doing the work yourself. You only need to have the right tools and follow the correct instructions to accomplish the task. You don't have to be an expert to get the job done.

How to Install New Transmission Mounts

(Note: These are general instructions for all types of automobiles.)

Things Needed:

  • New transmission mounts
  • Floor jack
  • 2-4 jack stands
  • Open-end wrench
  • Ratchet wrench
  • Penetrating oil
  • Hammer
  • Screwdriver
  • Protective glasses

Step-by-step Instructions:

  1. Make sure your car is on a flat and solid surface. Get a floor jack and use it to elevate your automobile to a height that will make it easy for you to work under it. A simple way to know if it's lifted high enough is if the tires are at least three inches from the ground.
  2. Have your vehicle supported by jack stands. You will need two to four jack stands to keep your car off the floor while you work under it and provide you more safety.
  3. Place the armature of the floor jack below the transmission pan of the transmission.
  4. Elevate the floor jack until the armature is directly under the transmission pan and enough force has been given. Apply penetrating oil on your existing transmission mounts and let it be absorbed for five minutes.
  5. Use open-end and ratchet wrenches to get the transmission mount bolts loose. These bolts are what keep the rubber transmission mounts connected to the transmission or a transmission bracket.
  6. Elevate the floor jack to a point where the bolts that secure the rubber mounts can be taken out together with the mounts. Usually, a top nut will loosen and the bolt will eventually fall off.
  7. Raise the transmission to be able to remove your old mounts.
  8. Clean the place where you will put your new transmission mounts. Get a screwdriver to take out the rust and the dirt that may hinder your new transmission mounts from laying flat against the cross member.
  9. Raise the floor jack again to be able to lift the transmission from the cross member and put in your new rubber mounts. Your new transmission mounts will stand taller than the old mounts you removed because they have not yet supported the weight of the transmission. Slide your new mounts in proper position.
  10. Put in a transmission mount bolt from below and lower the floor jack until the transmission is positioned above the rubber shock absorber of the mount.
  11. Place a mount nut on the bolt and tighten it using a wrench. Insert the rest of the transmission mount bolts the same way.
  12. Lower the floor jack from below the transmission pan to have your transmission mounts support the weight of the transmission. Installation is now complete.
