Experienced mechanics share their insights in answering this question :
Hi there – in this case, you have nailed it – it’s the passenger side engine mount. The engine mounts on this engine (L & R) are hydraulic, and leak fluid when they rupture. It is possible that both of the engine mounts have ruptured and should be replaced together.

While you don`t necessarily need to change all engine mounts at once, if you don`t replace them all, you should pay closer attention to them, as they`re likely to be the same age as the part you`re replacing.
For some vehicles and motor mounts, you may need to remove parts of the subframe or other engine bay parts to access the mounts, but if you take the time and have the correct tools, replacing your motor mounts is usually a Saturday job.
The A4 engines use three mounts.
Motor mount replacement is a big job, though, so be wary of any mechanic or dealer that is offering to do the job for a price that seems too good to be true.
A failing motor mount can lead to serious engine damage and will also greatly impact the performance of the vehicle. It is very unsafe to drive with a broken motor mount. If you feel a lot of vibration in the vehicle while you are driving, there`s a good chance it`s the motor mount.
Engine mounts typically last 60,000-100,000 miles, but can fail prematurely with aggressive driving, outside storage, dry climates, and traffic collisions.
Factory original mounts last a pretty long time, but engine oil leaks are a common cause of premature degrading. Worn mounts will allow a running engine to shift and bounce in all kinds of unpredictable, power-sapping ways.
Typical vehicles have between three and four motor mounts depending on their size and the stability of their engine. Certain cars may have four mounts due to how the engine is positioned relative to its other car body components and vice versa. Again, your car`s manual will likely contain these details.

You don`t NEED to, but be aware that the other mounts tend to wear more quickly after 1 has been replaced. If you don`t replace the others, keep an eye on them.
Typically, one motor mount fails before the others. As an engine revs, it wants to rotate in the same direction as the crankshaft. That tends to stretch one motor mount and compress the others. Usually, the mount that stretches is the one that fails first, Mazor said.

I have a 2010 camry. I just recently replaced the engine with a 2014 camry engine. Now I have Four engine lights on. I replaced on
ANSWER : If you swapped the engine from a vehicle that is 4 years newer than the car is then you are going to have electrical and sensor incompatibilities that may not be able to be fixed by just a few sensor replacements. There were many changes in computer and emission related items between 2010 and 2014 engines. I would recommend having a mechanic like one from YourMechanic come to you and compare the two engines to isolate the possible differences and see if the problem can be fixed.

How do you replace the rear & side engine mounts without lifting out the engine? & how do you lift the engine out?
ANSWER : Hi…thank you for your questions. If required in the application, a portable engine support bar is used to support an engine during mount replacement. The support bar has lifting capability as well so that the mount can be unloaded and removed. If a particular repair application requires a "crane" (complete engine removal for instance), such are portable these days in any event. With regard to the exhaust system repair, mechanics use ramps to gain access. Six ton portable jack stands will safely support a car two feet into the air which provides more than enough access to repair or replace any exhaust system component. If you desire replacement of the mounts, please refer to YourMechanic’s motor mount replacement service page. For exhaust leaks, please use the exhaust system inspection/repair page page. Once on each of those service pages, if you click on "Get a Quote" and enter your vehicle information (year, make, model) you can obtain cost info and schedule the service. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.

When should I replace a motor mount on a 2004 kia optima?
ANSWER : Hello. The motor mounts on vehicles in general should be inspected every 50,000 miles. I’ve seen motor mounts become excessively worn on vehicles with as low as 30,000 miles so it wouldn’t be a surprise if yours are due for replacement at 60,000 miles. The main part of motor mounts and made of rubber and sometimes the rubber what the teary rate quicker than average depending on the types of elements its exposed to (heat,cold,vibrations,and rough driving are elements in which a motor mount will be exposed). I would say the book time for the motor mount replacement is about an hour and a half. I will get a quote sent to you regarding the labor cost.
To replace the crankshaft position sensor yes you will have to remove the motor mount, power steering pump and the timing belt. The crankshaft position sensor should be a 2.5 to 3.5 hour job. Technicians here at Yourmechanic could provide the repairs for you if requested.

Hey Allen. I just rebuilt (?) the engine on my 06 Acura TL. Now the engine line went on. They told me the engine? can blow up if I
ANSWER : Hi there. I think it may be a good idea to find a new mechanic. Fortunately, our mobile mechanics are able to complete most diagnostic inspections and complete a lot of repairs services at your location, and on your schedule. In what you are describing above, the current issue seems to be with your EVAP system, which is designed to relieve pressure in the fuel tank and also collect harmful vapors before they escape into the air. Now, in regards to the car "blowing up"; that’s a bit dramatic, but it is important to have your issues repaired if it’s related to the EVAP system. Here is what I would recommend. Set up an appointment to have one of our mobile mechanics come to your location to complete a check engine light inspection – (click here to set up an appointment). This will allow them to download the stored error codes that cause the light to illuminate and determine what parts need repair or replacement. Then, they’ll be better prepared to provide you with a repair estimate and complete the repairs in most cases for you.

I have a 96 Ford ranger with cel p0340 I have recently done a timing belt, engine runs great replaced cmp sensor cel still on
ANSWER : Hi There,
This may happen for a couple of reasons. First, check to be sure that the connections to the sensor are clean and not faulty or broken. Secondly, check to be sure you replaced the correct sensor as there are two camshaft position sensors in some applications. If you need further help with this, please reach out to us here at YourMechanic as we are always here to help.

How hard is it to replace the transmission and engine mounts?
ANSWER : This depends heavily on your own mechanical ability and access to the proper tools. I would recommend having an expert from Your Mechanic come to your home to replace your motor mounts.

Hi, I got my corolla 2012 engine overheated due to bad radiator, I replaced the radiator but the engine pick is not the same.
ANSWER : Hi There,
Depending on how severe the engine overheating before was, this may have resulted in a blown head gasket or a head gasket that may have partially caused a cylinder leak. When this happens, this can cause the compression in any given cylinder to drop as a result of the cylinder head gasket being damaged. As the gasket leaks and cylinder pressure (or compression) drops, this will result in a loss of power. A blown head gasket may cause a number of different symptoms. A head gasket that fails between cylinders will generally cause a misfire and potentially compression leaks from one cylinder into another. Low compression will eventually result in a rough idling engine. When the head gasket fails between a cylinder and the coolant port, coolant may leak into the cylinder causing it to be burnt with the fuel charge in the combustion chamber. This often results in misfires on startup, especially after the engine is run, turned off and restarted. I would suggest having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose and inspect your vehicle to determine what the proper diagnosis may be.
