Cars and trucks have a number of parts that will at some point be required to be replaced. One of those parts is very important to the vehicle’s drivetrain. The drivetrain consists of the engine and the transmission. The drivetrain sits inside the engine compartment and is held in place by a set of mounting brackets that are made especially for certain makes and models of cars and trucks.
The engine mounts not only hold the engine and transmission they also are designed to absorb the vibration and noise. Each engine mount has to be able to handle the heavy amount of stress put on it by the heavyweight of the engine and transmission of the drivetrain. Due to all the stress, these mounts will eventually need to be replaced. One of the most common indicators that one or more of the engines are bad and need to be replaced is hearing a clunking sound during braking or sudden accelerations.
Since this part will have to replaced at some point being able to find replacement parts for the DIY mechanic is very important. For this article, we found seven engine mount kits online and included a brief review of all seven of them. In hopes to provide the reader with enough information that they can use to make an informed decision.
