Engine mountings are very important in cars as they ensure that the engine stays firmly in place. These mountings are designed to absorb shocks from the road caused by bumps and potholes and disperse this shock evenly without causing too much strain on the engine. In some instances a mounting can break and this can cause the engine to sit at the incorrect angle within the engine compartment. When this occurs gear selection can become more difficult as the gearbox is misaligned. Driving any distance with a broken engine mounting can cause serious damage to the integrity of the engine and is also a safety hazard.
The fitment of a new engine mounting would usually take place at a workshop or service department and be done by a qualified technician. To establish if the engine mountings in your car are worn or broken, the car will need to be viewed by a technician. If it is found that these mountings need replacement, don’t hesitate to get it done to improve the safety of the car. Engine mountings are usually made out of a thick robust weight-bearing rubber.
