A broken engine can cause vibration rattles noises etc. But eratic shifting no. What kind of shifting are you having?

I installed the upper dogbone mount, put it in gear and you don't hear it any more, BUT you can hear a very slow clanking sound at idle from transmission, In gear at higher speed you can still hear that very slow clank sound. What are your thoughts?

Hi there,

There are 4 mounts for engine & trans axle, the rear is the hardest to get to but on a hoist it is not so bad, the side transmission mount is the next hardest, the other two are fairly easy.

I took the valve cover off to see if I could see anything on top or down the timing chain, nothing so far, I also took the serpentine belt off, and could still hear it. There is no miss in the engine, car runs great except for the sound. Almost sounds like timing chain is hitting against a tin part of cover or something to that effect. Anything else before it has to be torn down again?

Oh yeah, I inspected the other mounts and balancer, It looks like it is wobbling a bit. It doesn't seem to get louder or anything with acceleration it does go faster and slower with speed. It seems to get quieter with air conditioning. That may be just because of the load put on the engine. No trouble codes when I scanned the computer. I am hoping not to tear it down, but it looks like I may have to.

The way that sound travels with metal, I did think it was coming from trans, now that I have got more into it, I don't think so. Have any suggestions. By the way the way it was hard shifting gears, has stopped since I cleaned the mass air flow system and installed a new air filter. The filter was really bad.

I have recently noticed small hydraulic leak that seems to originate from an engine mount. How serious of a problem is this?

By itself, not really serious. I guess it depends on your definition of "serious". The problem with bad engine mount is this: the vibration that is not dampened by the mount will now travel to other parts of the engine and will a broken mount will affect other mounts.

Depending on which mount that is bad. If the front or rear, now your engine will "flex" forward and back with every acceleration and deceleration. This create stress to your exhaust system. If it is the dog-bone (front engine - by the belts), the engine will flex side to side, which will transfer stress to transmission.

Did you look for slack in the timing chain also turning the engine over and looking for slack worn guides etc?

My front end shimmys at 40-45 mph. I gets worse with hard acceleration. Above and below this speed everything is fine. How do I know if this is a transmission problem and not a motor mount or chassis problem?

Hi Street Rat,

Thank you for the donation.

For bad engine mounts, there would be vibrations when gears are engaged while stopped.

Chassis problem would not cause vibrations. Vehicle might be drifting to either side and unstable.

Transmission seldom vibrates and if they do, it would normlly be via the drive trains.

The problem is more likely to be the drive trains. Check if the CV shaft inner joints have excessive side play. Look out for torn rubber boots.
