If you are not having any slippage when driving the car, I would check the engine mount, maybe it is broken. Try to take care of it asap to avoid any additional damages and more expensive repairs.

Thanks Mark this could be my answer so where do i find the engine mount does it fit under the engine or on the top of it


Christine, my name is Hamada, anyways, depending on your car, each maker has different areas where they are located , there are 2 engine mounts and another one which is transmission mount. Here is an advice. Take your car to the your dealer for oil change. Usually they will check everything possible is wrong with car to increase their sales, this way you will have the car inspected for free!


Unless you have a fat check book avoid the dealer a oil change shop will do the same thing for cheaper price. If your mounts are fine you may be low on fluid or have a sticking value body in the transmission.


Oil change is not profitable to the auto dealer, it is a way to get more business in, and that is why they will inspect the car for free to see if they can upsell. I am not affiliated with any dealer too. But oil shop is not any cheaper than the dealer, simply because you are paying extra for speedy service convenience. Plus most workers at oil change would not know where to look for those mounts, especially if they are being paid minimum wages, it's like asking a McDonald employee for a Filet Minot recipe, which I can bet confidently that even the store manager could not provide.

Thanks Guys!!!
