A bad transmission mount can create driveline noise when starting out or accelerating, or it may even affect the operation of the clutch or gear shift linkage.
Mounts deteriorate with age and mileage, so it's not unusual to find one or more broken or collapsed mounts in older high-mileage vehicles. If one mount has failed, chances are the others are near the end of their service life and should also be replaced as a complete set.
The engine and transmission mounts hold and support the powertrain while isolating the vibrations produced by the powertrain from the chassis. On rear-wheel drive (RWD) cars and trucks, there is usually a pair of motor mounts on each side of the engine to support the engine, and a single mount under the back of the transmission. The rear mount may be part of a bolt-in cross member support.
On front-wheel drive (FWD) cars and minivans with transverse mounted engines, there are left and right engine/transmission mounts, and a third mount above or below to triangulate support.
Upper engine mounts are often called "struts" because they prevent the engine from rocking back and forth as the vehicle accelerates and decelerates. Upper mounts usually have a bushing on each end with one bushing attached to the engine and the other to the radiator cross member support.
